they were those buttero roper boots that were on deep discount that GDL posted (i think), one of my best value purchases yet.
theyre awesome and fairly sleek when the shaft is worn under denim. The shaft also helps with stacking. I'll get pics soon.
I love the 508s, I have a worn in pair and I just got another dry pair (they call it "clean atmosphere"). it's the perfect cut and I think they're gonna keep it in their line-up. Its got a mid rise, fitted thigh but not constricting, and a taper down to like 7.25". I get mine 34X32 cause I don't do teh stakks. If think you'll dig em.
