Nothing hugely special:

1x a1923 (linen over leather)
3x margiela sidezip(canvas, waxed rose, red crispino "western")
1x CP (geller combat)
1x Cloak (2005 contrast desert boot)
1x S2A sidezip (have to sell, though)
1x Trickers brogue (stowe, something or another)
1x F+B (elios, polished to purple/black/green with black leather laces, but I only use them for riding [horses], really)

I'd love a pair of white 99(6?) (or do I have Porsche on the brain?) - not the combats; a CCP side zip and a Margiela roper. Really would love a pair of white boots, in addition to a pair of white MMM perfs.

Surface to Air - they really don't fit my foot well, despite the size being "correct."

I've had good luck with margiela boots - all three pairs I have are really, really nice. The leather treatment on the rose boots is really something, and the canvas pair may not have the shoemaking pedigree as some of the other brands I own, but so far they appear to be totally bombproof, insanely comfortable, and they have, quite frankly, an absolutely fantastic shape. the Western boots have a wonderful leather and appear to be equally sturdy (of course, they don't compare with the augustas, or even the trickers, in terms of build quality, but they are all absolutely beautiful boots.

The Augustas are really something special, really in all ways, but I've had a lot of problems working them into my everyday wardrobe, which is unfortunate. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair, particularly one of the models that doesn't have the obnoxiously low heel, because they are really, really impressive up close.

I'm not really into the guidi backzips, or the toebox of the 696, but I do like those 995's.

after a lot of back and forth with guidi i am honestly convinced that guidi makes leather socks for men confused.gif

MMM always looks cool but not at the retail tag, i'd grab a pair on sale, i also remember the western ones i did like them.

trickers, i owned 2 pairs and sold em.

A1923 is just a really well done boot, i have a reverse leather back zip and have no regrets

It's pretty much all I own. Boots, leather jackets, and blazers. I do not have a proper food pyramid of swag.

"1. What do you do? Technology Director at Women’s Wear Daily / Conde Nast Publications
2. What item could you not live without? Carol Christian Poell boots that I’ve been rocking since ’05/06. I go from my motorcycle right to work and back in them, nothing else holds up.
3. How would you describe your style? Motorcycle friendly; if I can’t ride my bike in it, I can’t wear it.
4. What are you wearing right now? Carol Christian Poell bison high neck leather jacket, Shaun Leane necklace, Julius tank top, Nicholas Andreas Taralis jeans, and Carol Christian Poell boots"

this guy is wearing ccp tornados, and riding his bike in them, i am surprised that the ccp which he claims he has since 05/06 are not worn out due to the gear switching, when i had my duc i ruined a few beater pairs of sneaks/boots like that

another style i like Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

"What are you wearing right now? Carol Christian Poell kangaroo leather jacket with arthrosic elbow and knuckle, diver hooded top with arthrosic elbow, dead-end jeans, diverging belt, and Guidi bison leather high lace boot."
