With all due respect, but this is pretty ignorant. Storm welt definitely makes a shoe more waterproof. The major place where a traditional shoe leaks in water is from the side between the welt and the upper. Much more than through the bottom of the shoe, through the sole stitch. The storm welts secure just this area in a much better way. You don't have to walk through ponds to experience the difference here.

Remember that the main problem with water going into the shoe is not that your feet get wet, but that the inner parts of the shoe gets soaked and therefore wears out a lot faster. This is not up to personal opinions, I'm sorry. If you find it ugly, that's fine, of course. Actually I'm not a big fan of the look either. But I wouldn't give advice to people that storm welt is a scam, when this is false.

IMO, preventing feet from getting wet definitely take precedence above preventing excessive shoe wear. Shoes are meant to protect feet.

And I do agree storm welt prevents both shoe innards and feet from getting wet. Not a scam and functionally effective compare to fold in constructed shoes.

Also, box calf or other tannery finished calf help repel moisture/water much better than crust. Corrected grain is functionally better than crust for rugged wear as well.

Spend thirty minutes walking under the rain and you could really tell the difference.

Yes, I write it in a bad way. What I meant with the "main problem" is that it's more common that shoes leak in water that you don't feel, cause it doesn't go all the way through to your feet.

And yeah, I'd also say that for bad weather box calf is better than vegetable tanned crust leather. Though there's still box calf crust leathers as well, which is just as good as aniline dyed box calf when it comes to being water repellent.

TS, thank you for the update.

So, they haven't been put into production yet?

Thanks

The balmorals are worth the 400€ but unfortunately they run out of my size.

For 50€ more, you could've snagged the Carmina version of this boot, plus with free shipping.

Carmina is running a free worldwide shipping promotion currently, ends December some time. I'm just going off of what engar wrote, that he paid 400€ for them. If meermin is charging less than 400€, then you'd be hard pressed to find similar model.

Yeah, these suede boots are 220.

it wasn't the clearest post but I believe his 400 euros was related to the balmoral boots not the suedes he pictures and later confirmed were @ 220.

Sorry, my english sucks.
The pictured boots are the snuff rapello derbies, not the shell balmorals. I just wanted to note that the shell balmorals are very nice.

Just a heads up for those in the Brown Museum Calf Mk. II group buy - delivery dates have been pushed back to the end of Nov, due to Ileca being no more, and the subsequent delays in securing what was last of the museum calf leather.
