Hey fellas! What is the general opinion on asking a local boot maker to make somthing in the style of Augusta double zips wrinkle boot, instead of dropping 2k on it? There is a guy with good rep in my town who would do it for bout 400$. he does not distress leather of course so the look of the leather will not be the same. Would you think that is a good idea?
This is a terrible idea. Don't do this unless you will be content with boots that are nothing like Augustas.
