I recently purchased a pair from TUK Shoes - their pointy Winklepicker Beatle Boot. I wanted a pointy boot with a medium to high heel. I looked at Beatwear and Atom Retro, as well as some punk/goth styles. My new boots are just marvelous, though the heel is only 1 1/4" and the boots themselves are not as high as I was looking for originally. Some might not care for their construction, but I was totally looking for something different, reminding me of the 60s. If you want a less pointy version, more akin to the the type of boot the Beatles actually wore, then Beatwear or Atom Retro would be the way to go, IMHO.
