Was just looking at the green and rubi boots. My calf 9.5 Robert boots are a hair too big to wear with regular dress socks. I'm wondering if shell would be big enough to wear in a 9 puzzled.gif

I have no idea why they insisted on making all of those shell boots as bals.

They are not realistic to wear casually.

Those are Inca wholecuts in question. What do you guys think? They feel significantly better than the Rain last, but I'm not sure how much of a V shape in the lacing is considered acceptable.

 

For what it's worth, I've had that same makeup for about a year and they've stretched considerably.

Ah. So they are then realistic to wear in a non-casual manner? I'd love putting them with a suit this time of year....and afterall...there are plenty of derby/blucher options out there as well.

The non casual nature is precisely why I was so desirous of them.

 

Really a very beautiful rendition of a formal boot.

 

Thanks.

I guess my issue is that they didn't make even one open laced jumper in this round of shell colors.

I feel like you can get away with open lacing in a business setting easier than you can get away with closed lacing in a casual setting.

It is all opinion of course.

I'd tend to agree.  Bal boots just look strange in a casual outfit.  Sadly I wear my U-cap bal boots hardly at all these days because of that fact.

Happy Friday

Bal boots look killer with the right pair of jeans, but it's a very specific look, not at all versatile.

I wear slim fit jeans, and I just cant do it, even with something that is very dark.

Happy to report that i was able to take out spots on the toes of my new Carmina Cordovan Jumper boots with deer bone, saphir renovateur and buffing. 

They fit really great and almost as good as my G&G boots. 

 

 

Also, another pic of the Saddle Shell Jodhpur's which are super comfortable and sleek :).

Is it just me, or is it hard to get a proper mirror shine on Carmina's museum calf?  Regardless, one does his best.
