And if you look close, that raised apron extends to the heel counter!! Some bad-ass bootmaker back in the day.
These pictures make it appear they are 11AAA sized, yet they are 9.5D and I wear them often.
Thx Swan for your comments and your Show and Tell. Those sea turtles are magnificent, if a bit on the slimmy side! Just this morning, I got notification of a sea turtle wallet available on ePrey (wasn't searching for it). I checked it out; they want $500, but had a Make and Offer. Now, I can't find it to send you the link. Although I think it was associated with the seller who offered an anteater buckle...he took $55 for it off-line down from $BIN $75. If I find it is he, I'll send the link along, and you can offer him $300!
You asked for more JB Hill LaPluma shots; the reason for the hat is that they are both considered "whiskey" in color. I beleive they are still featured in the boot of the month section on their site, here's another:
I need to grab some shots of my other vintage boots and post them (gator, some inlays, San Antonio Luccheses, etc.)
Glad to have some interest in them!
