I guess only hunting or if one is on the battle field.

They are brilliant - look like they are made with hunting/riding/shooting in mind, but that seems rather rough use for G&G.  

 

The only similar thing I've seen was from Jan Kielman, with a rather more practical and less pretty feel about them - again inspired by early 20th century military wear, I believe:

 

 

These really make me want to put them on and go do something manly.

Something manly as in eating beef carpaccio made from the same calf you get the hide from?

I'm not sure cows are terribly challenging prey...I suppose if you take on the bull in question only with your cutlery?

How about going to Mississippi, hunt some giant American alligator, skin the hide thorn cut for a pair of boots, and eat the filet sashimi while drinking it's blood?

They only have a few sizes.

I've been drooling in my mind over high buckle boots since I first saw them on Boardwalk Empire:



...and a post on Die, Workwear! about a late Purdey model didn't help me either. For the moment, this project is still pending as I'm adding a pair of black suede hippopotamus chukka boots to the collection.

Still, those G&G boots are, well, stupendous. That's the right word.

Tell more, please!

Well, the hide is hippo with nice striated texture from repeated bird-pecking, soles are Vibram Eton rubber units, 360-degree welt with white goyser stitching, round toe, three blind eyelets, black calf piping, seamless back. I'll write more about them once the boots arrive and I can fondle some hippo butt.

I have this strange dream to own shoes made from all leather types available. After that hippo, elefant, shagreen and kangaroo remain. Lizard was nasty so I sold those old pairs, and I'll likely steer clear from toad, fish and other ugly hides. Mountain ram looks gorgeous in pictures but I'm not sure if it ages well. I don't smoke and rarely drink, footwear is my only vice. A man should have one, it makes for a more intresting character -- and all the lore around shoemaking is beautiful.

I agree. Good "hunting" for different lethers.

Big game hunting boots....

Goyser stitching? Rozsnyai?

 

Fantastic, and I have a similar thought about getting these things: a hippo chukka also occured to me, and an elephant ear loafer perhaps.  I agree that snakes and lizards aren't usually that lovely.  And as I don't drink or smoke either, I think this is the most gentlemanly of vices.

 

Oh, was this thread about G&G? Sorry.  I saw a lovely sueded croc loafer in their shop...

Anyone making new orders this round of trunk shows?
