Like this?

Thanks... but I would prefer a US seller for easy returns if necessary.

for under $500, your best bets are the calfskin aldens at "the shoemart" (or the ae park avenues too, perhaps) - as there are no captoe options from carmina / C&J at that price point.  for $570, though, you could snag the hallams or connaughts at barney's . . .

I think the brass ones are likely to continue to look better.

picked these up yesterday for ~120 USD from Ed Et Al Singapore sample shoes sale. Will be my only black pair for some time... Just applied Saphir Reno onto them, will that be enough for protection?

Yes - but I don't like the little rust that creeps in around the screw on the steel ones. Ok I am a little extreme.

oh no, i see your point. tbh, i never cared about this. just wear them happy.gif

the triumph e.g. boulevard plate i know are just alloyed. dunno where you can get the solid brass. durability shouldn't be a concern, imo.

It seems like you can get the brass ones in Japan - going to have to schedule a trip.

Yes. Wearing them is most important.

I'm pretty sure brass toe plates I have are all alloyed, not solid


You may want to pick up some Triumph Toe Steel Jewelry (jellybeans) in Japan too smile.gif
