Shoemart has the #8 wingtip boot on the Barrie last with a double leather sole that is regularly...

Quote: Originally Posted by brothersharp I bought them back in October, and all that I knew was that they looked nice and were handcrafted--therefore being durable to the point of achieving 'lifetime-lasting' status. Luckily, the post holiday blizzard in NY gave me a great chance to see exactly how durable they were. These things do not equate. Shoes last a lifetime from proper maintenance and appropriate wear. Those boots look like they've...

Ultimately, I found even an eight to give tons of heel slip and play on my right and a little on the left and crippling pain on long days because of the lack of arch support or support/cushion in the forefoot. Thicker socks magnified the problem unfortunately. When I visited the...

In addition, per this thread I understand that the only care I need to give them is wipe mud/dirt off with no polish/cream/conditioners. Is this correct? Thanks again everyone.

I believe the #8 Indy is a regularly stocked item at LS (i.e. it gets reordered). Not sure if they carry the 4060 (Grant last captoe). Personally, I think the #8 Plaza last captoe that LS carries is stunning and more attractive than the 4060. Aries83 has a fine example of the #8 Plaza captoe It should also be noted...
Quote: Originally Posted by number9dream I wonder if the heels are different sizes? (For reference, I own the Shoemart boot in Color#8 and the JCrew Cordovan Captoe boot. Both are on the Barrie last, but the heel and overall footprint of the JCrew boot is much narrower and sleeker.) From the pic of the Epaulet boot, it looks more like the JCrew footprint, but I can't tell. Anyone have any ideas? The Shoemart wingtip boot has a 360 degree...
