Post some pictures of your gators

I love that stitch pattern.

Not too big a fan of the toe though. Being short and all, anything but pointed toes make me look like a midget or a clown.

M.L. Leddy custom boot (just not originally for me), but unworn and perfectly mint, until today smile.gif

Speaking from experience....the world only needs one of me.

Is that the R Toe?
post #218 of 440
Think they said it was a J-toe.


Edit: The model is T3094.R4. Maybe the "R" signifies an R-toe?

Yup, R toe 4 Heel.

I'm tempted to buy a few pairs online but I heard that Kangaroo leather (which is the pair I want) is banned in a few states... Goddamn it.

I can't even have it shipped to a sibling overseas or to a vacation home outside of the US because of the ridiculous import/export fee.

I've gone through this thread several times but this is the first time I've seen this picture (or recall seeing it) and holy... those are absolutely gorgeous. How much did they cost?




Found my invoice and they were $140 plus tax, $400 with 65% off.




And these are my other Chocolate Suede.....Custom made(but not for me) by Pascal of Hollywood Riff Raff....cost a bit more. Bought them from Pascal, new, the guy never came to pick them up.

Chocolate,white, green, and red.....red stitching at toe, plus red and green on the collar.

Signature sole design Of Pascal

post #222 of 440
Pretty sick sole design. Shame that it'll just be eroded over time though. =/

By the way, how much toe space do y'all have in your boots (that fit well) in the toe-box? Just approximates (e.g.; 1cm, 2cm) will do, I'm not actually asking for the exact space measurement (I'm not sure how that would even be measured).

I'm assuming that this will vary depending on how pointy the toe is. Also, for those of you who do own both standard (semi-round) and pointy toe boot styles, did you size up for the pointy toe models?
post #223 of 440
I would just get your size, I have toes up and down the scale, and if I get my size, all is good. I've never sized up. But I haven't any bunions, ect with which to take extra precautions, either.


Now, if I see a pair that are killer, and they are a 1/2 size small, they better have the rounded toe if I plan to wear, not display them.



And I am still fighting the urge to wear Pascal's boot other than on carpet.
post #224 of 440
Apparently I'm a C width. There's quite a bit of space in the instep for the standard width. Oh well.
post #225 of 440
Or you're one length size to long



Snugness across the instep and snugness of the shaft at the lower leg(tongue area of the boot) keeps the heel from slipping too much till they are broken in. After breaking in, it's the snugness across the top of the foot that holds the foot in place. Gotta get that right. It should still slip a "bit" after break-in.

The higher quality the boot the better. Vintage Tony Lama, Nocona and one or two Justin's are the factory boots in my closet. Dan Post is a step down, and the cliff is steep after them. They may look like a cowboy boot, but that's about all.


Vintage Lucchese Boots are heads and shoulders above the other factory boots I mentioned(PRE 1990). They made one line of stock boot, additionally, one could get a custom. All Lucchese boots of that era were designed to have a slight twist as the foot slid into the vamp. It was patented. Also, a main reason the boot fit so well.

PM if you have questions.
