The only reason I could see doing this is if you had great difficulty finding boots that fit. It's a formula for creating something that's neither fish nor fowl. Would you order jeans, a t-shirt or a leather jacket from Steed?
Thanks. I probably should have waited to post until I've worn them more. I've only worn them a little around the house. I'm a difficult fit -- which is why I tried bespoke -- but I'm cautiously optimistic.
