I'm a heelgrinder...the heel taps have save me a fortune on resoling. Never had any extra wear on the toes to warrant the toe taps

Nice boots Jason. Love boots with medallions and/or brogueing. Now, did you have those heel taps installed by a pro or did you nail them in your self? If the latter, any online sources?
post #138 of 643
yea, I need some kind of medallion/brogueing otherwise I feel the shoe is too *plain* and it bugs me.....re: taps, there is an old school cobbler near my work I take my shoes to, he is an older eastern European and really knows his work

What about black suede? I've wanted a pair of black suede chelseas forever but I can't find them anywhere... Any suggestions?

I am also pleasantly surprised at the RM Williams boots. I kinda liked them before but seeing them with some wear makes them much more appealing.

shipton and heneage has black suede chelseas - the PUTNEY BLACK SUEDE CHELSEA BOOT for a price USD199.00.

since shipton doesn't actually make anything but just rebadges english shoes from crockett and jones, grenson and alfred sargent with their own name, one of these companies probably has a black suede chelsea available. try checking pediwear to see if its cheaper there.

I love you! (In a very manly way of course...) I looked at Pediwear before but I didn't see anything. I'll have to check again.

Don't have any newer styles but these oldies fit me well.





Above Edwin Clapps from the 1920's very high quality leather that takes a fantasic shine.





Above Walk-Overs from the teens same as worn by the gangster Big Jim Colosimo in the old days when he was in power.

Shoenut do you put shoe trees in your boots.

I love your shoes, but it pains me to see the wrinkles in them.

Are the wrinkles deliberate?

well if those shoes are really 80 and 90 years old respectively, then the amount of wrinkles are acceptable IMHO

Ah, I see in that my excitement over finally managing to publish a photo I forgot to specify the brand... They are from Carmina. I got this brand recommended in another thread, and I must say I am very happy with them so far. Actually, normally I need a lot of time to "wear in" shoes, but these ones were comfortable from the very begining. The second day I put them on was for a two-days business trip abroad, and my feet felt completely OK when I returned. That made me very happy. I will probably consider Carmina also for my next footwear purchase. Also, they are Spanish, and I would love to be able to regularly buy from a local manufacturer (otherwise, most stuff I buy except wine and food is imported).

Those Edwin Clapps above live on in the Madison made by Stacy Adams. The cap toe, the narrow waist, the way they take polish so well. I imagine the leather and construction are inferior, as they retail for USD 110, but at least one can still buy the style. I know SA gets a lot of grief on this board, but the virtue of this model is that they just never stopped making them.

I believe older Stacy Adams were welted. I've seen a few around in the thrifts and they always seemed very narrow.

Here's my recent pick-ups:



ET Wright Chelseas, $124 on sale. Plus, in a 12AA, my ridiculously hard-to-find shoe size.



Allen-Edmonds. $25 used on ebay. For $25, scratches and wrinkles acceptable. Oh, and in my size.
