Common Projects does the same combat boot nearly every fall/winter but without the spats (which is my fav part). Was a bit cheaper then the Geller collab too. If you want something similar that could be something to look at.
So it seems to be a toss up, nothing really for the die hard but something for folks that want to have a piece of the "hot new new" in their closet. I might still see because I am interested in how it all comes together.
