I own 5 AE boots and like them just fine, but that is a just plain cruel way to tee that gent up for epic disappointment...

Truth.

 

It does put me in a precarious position when people ask how much my shoes cost.

 

Most people don't get that its more than expensive shoes, but that I actually enjoy my footwear as a hobby/enthusiast.

 

I don't lie to people about it.  Usually I chuckle and retort that they are expensive.

 

But then, depending upon the context it allows me to digress into a brief discourse regarding the history, attributes and facts about whichever shoe maker I may be wearing that day.

 

Which reminds that a nice pair of cordovan Vass boots would make an excellent conversation piece.

Arrived yesterday, P2 (G width) burgundy cordovan on dainite. Delighted.

Speaking of a "nice pair of cordovan Vass boots" Rezső has informed me mine are finally ready :happy:. Inspired by Namor's whisky shell boots - F last, Antic Cognac Cordovan.

This.

 

I was referred to No man walks alone since I had never visited or ordered directly from Vass.

 

AH.....
