I really do like those Rider's, but I do have a bit of a qualm with the price point on these. Don't get me wrong... I am a big Rider Boot fan, and own a pair from his Rider per Cortina line. However, $745.00 for suede Chukkas is starting to get pretty expensive, when unlined Edward Greens are not that much more, and they are (in my opinion) a step up from Borgioli (i.e, channeled stitching, superior finishing, materials, etc.), at least from the Borgioli's I have handled.
With that said, wonderful shoes, and I hope you really do enjoy them! Can you comment on the quality / last shape? It is certainly possible that Borgioli is making these to a higher standard than their other offerings.
