Yes. From 10 feet away, they just look like whiskey shoes. They're not very flamboyant from afar at all.

I would agree but I would hope for them to be as dark as the original order.

On another note does anyone know where someone can order boot laces. My carmina ruby bal boots laces have already tore. so annoying

This happened with my ruby bal boots literally the first time I wore them; because I hadn't broken them in yet, I had to lace them up extra tight to close the lacing gap, and they fought back and ended up snapping while I was going down stairs.

 

Didn't your pair come with extra laces?

Ugh, not again. I had hoped that it was just the lighting of the pics. I'll pass judgment when I get mine, but this isn't something one should have to worry about.

A common issue and likely why the boots come with extra laces in the first place. A pair of mine started fraying at the speedhooks after 1 or 2 wears and finally snapped after maybe 5 wears. I have another pair though that I've worn maybe 10 times and the laces are still as good as new, so not entirely consistent either.

It's probably mostly just the photos. They appear to have been taken in the shade on a partly cloudy day and are about 2/3'rds of a stop under exposed. I do agree that they appear to have a touch more brown than previous ruby models we've seen in the thread though.

It did but my left boot I have already used the extra pair. So I dont want to wear them unless I know I have a backup or a few backup pairs just in case.

I know what you mean. I've decided to tackle this issue by simply buying new boots (and their accompanying spare laces) faster than my old laces can break.

You missed my joke; I was suggesting that I was buying new boots instead of just buying laces mwink[1].gif Anyway, I haven't yet bought any replacement laces; I have a few extra pairs sitting around, but I'd definitely be interested in picking up a few more if you found a source.

I might be down for a chukka-height monk boot, but a model that high with three straps is a bit much for me.
