Wow mine have the exact same creasing, it's expected for shoes that are worn to experience some degree of creasing but I would definitely classify this as extreme creasing that even much more inexpensive dress shoes do not experience. I have the shoe, have posted here before, they looked lovely when I received them and after that they've been a shoe I avoid in my rotation.

Looks like these are in desperate need of attention from StC. The stitching has come loose on the vamp of the left of the right shoe, this will only get worse over time up until the point they might become beyond repair.

Another rainy day tomorrow! Time to break these bad boys out.

StC Chelsea boots

I wish StC made their Chelsea and Jodhpurs boots without that panel at the top of the shaft. A retailer told me they do that because 1) it is a mark of handmade shoes (?) and 2) apparently making the boot without that panel requires a machine that they don't have. Respectfully (and with frustration) I call BS on both. Plenty of handmade/bespoke makers do a Chelsea boot without that panel. I personally think that panel looks ridiculous.

It's a damn shame because I would've ordered a few pairs of Jodhpur and Chelsea boots. Maybe if I beg hard enough...

I echo this statement. A Chelsea is supposed to be sleek but that extra panel takes away from the sleekness of the boot.

In its defense, Zachary Jobe (I believe they're his) has a Jodhpur with a croc panel and steal.

It may not be optimal, but it is still damn sexy in my estimation.

Note: I fully agree about the panel, especially in regards to the Chelsea. It kills the sleek factor.

Just in from my man Justin @leathersoul Hawaii. 709's in snuff Kudu suede and Violet calf. Very happy.

Perhaps this photo makes them look more pronounced than they are? Or maybe I'm just not that sensitive about it. My feet are very wide so maybe there's just extra material there but they definitely do have creases.

Good catch! They've already been back once and repaired. The first time it was happening at three different places. I think with very wide feet and a lot of walking I put a lot of stress across that part of the instep/top of the ball of the foot. They came back good as new at no charge so now I'm just waiting for them to need a resole before sending them back for work. It's not perfect but I've mostly stopped noticing it and I know no other "normal" person can tell!





Finally pulling theses out for the fall. Not-so-freshly back from a resole. Happy friday all!

Weather dried out. So the Chelsea's go back and the double monks get to "stretch their legs"
