abbreviations of everything in my boot rack right now that i'm not selling

 Alden got kinda meh after a while, especially since they use this weird treatment on their #8 shell that I've found flakes away and starts looking really splotchy after a while (and tbh most European makers will blow em away in terms of build quality). Carmina overall is super excellent, especially since they've started using Horween instead of Comipel shell cordovan in their more recent offerings. Gemming's basically where the outsole is stitched to a canvas rib glued to...
It really pains me to do this but I'm downsizing my wardrobe so I've gotta let these go to a good home.   White's Semi-Dress boots in tough but gorgeous black horsehide - this stuff will pretty much survive being beat up to hell and back and still shine up beautifully with barely any lasting damage.   These were custom ordered with all brass eyelets, brogued cap toe, a Vibram 430 standard trim sole, standard height Cuban heel and single celastic toe.   Bought new and...

It scuffs grey pretty easily, probably because of the oil. There's patches of grain scattered around and one boot is heavily sueded on the back while the other is relatively smooth-ish. I gotta break out of the OCD mindset, I...
