In terms of price, you can go whereverthefuck you want, right? But is that what we really want to be talking about, or is it more about the other aspects of these boots/shoes? As many have noted, there are other artisans who are creating amazing things. People are increasingly hyped about Layer-0, for example (with good reason, IMO), and other artisans are also making themselves known here for things other than just their dizzying prices. So what makes a pair of...
Hmmmmm!!!!!!!         Can't remember ever being this tempted by a pair of BBS footwear before, but these look pretty fucking badass. I'm assuming high-level build quality, but what do those who have owned them think? I'd appreciate any impressions, thanks!
Ha! I was thinking they might be his ice fishing or mountaineering model.
Ha! No, that is indeed sunlight. I had just gotten home and was sitting out on the back porch and shot a couple of quick pictures, with no attention paid to, well, anything. The color is consistently brownish-grey throughout, with little highlights here and there. They do seem really solid, and I keep thinking of different ways to wear them, so mine will be around for a while, too. I hope the wedding planning is going well!
They're amazing @Whirling, and as robust on the feet as they feel in the hand, at least in the experience I've had with my two pairs (soon to be 3!). You can't break them, and they just keep looking better with every wear. Also very comfortable even on long days. The most straightforward designs should not run you anywhere near $3K, and there are frequently pairs available second-hand at much more "affordable" prices. Check 'em out if you get a chance!
Well @AlexanderTG, you were right, these Layer-0 low-tops are awesome! I love the thickness of the full-grain horse, and the fit is perfect, very comfortable! Mine have some pretty cool texture, too. A great alternative to all the boots!  
Kangaroo leather has the highest tensile strength per square whateveryouwill of any leather commonly used in boot- and shoe-making, so it doesn't need to be thick. That being said, it's not my favorite aesthetically because of its thin-ness and the way it ages. I personally love horse leather, which generally seems to land at the other end of the aesthetic spectrum (if such a thing exists). Bison is great, too.
I ordered them from a trusted retailer, so yes, the deposit came back. I wouldn't give Simone any money up front directly, especially at this point.
Actually, they may NEVER arrive. I just found out that the shell cordovan boots I ordered, oh, about a year ago now, have been "canceled" by the maker. Well, the non-maker. Nice on the professionalism there, Mr. C. Guess I'll have to look elsewhere for shell cordovan boots. Anyone have any leads, hit me up. 
Wow. Beautiful looking bag you got there! Should last forever and age really well.
