I hate you for kopping those from the Barney's sale for, like, 50% off retail Trini...

Those would look great with a heavy flannel pant or a Donegal. IMO
I wonder, does one shine those with a black polish, or is there actually a dark green?

Trini... Phat Guido however... FAM Santoni... well I'm not a huge fan of the styling, but the color is interesting.

hot enough that I want to just finish the job and light them on fire... hot enough to drop... into the goodwill bin hot like those bumps that show up one day and you have to put lotion on so they stop itching.... hot like that? well then yes! They sure are hot!

I got a pair of those green/suede Barney's boots. I've gotten more compliments for them in the short time I've owned them than any other pair of shoes I own.

They work well with tweed or khaki.

No belt. No trousers, either.

I typically wear mine (the Corthay Vendome in "olive" and Bucy in "bronze verte" in the thread alliswell posted a link to) with olive, taupe, medium to dark brown, or charcoal trousers/suits. However, with the brown suede on the upper part of your boots, I'd say medium to dark brown is definitely the best way to go for yours.

I would rock those boots, especially with some cords.

Those aren't mine - they're the OPs. He had trouble uploading the pics so I did it in my post.

The boots are interesting. I still haven't worn them out but noticed a few things.

In even moderate light including normal indoor lighting, the shoes look brown, which is why I had been confused. It only looks green in bright daylight (or under flash like in the pictures).

They actually look decent when I put denim against it, but it gives off a really strong rustic look.

I guess I'll wear them casually but will stay away from wearing them at work (although I don't think they are any "uglier" than danskos that I sometimes wear).
