This must be true because only a Nigerian prince would have enough money and bad taste to buy 1000 pairs of a ugly shoe smile.gif

The story would actually be perfect of you substitute Nigerian prince for Asian distributor.

What's the deal with these tanker boots? Does EG offer them at all, or was this a special order?

Unfortunately those aren't mine.
I'd love to have them though; fantastic boot.

Thanks for the link, michael. It's a shame that EG stopped producing them, but maybe things have changed since then; those posts date back to 2007.

They did produce a batch for Ralph Lauren years back. I passed on a pair of my size. frown.gif

JL has their aviator boots as well.

Speaking of similar looking Lobbs, I found these "Helldons" at

but I haven't been able to find out any more about them. If they could be had without the zipper, I'd prefer them even to that EG boot.

High boots demands special machines, tool sets etc, I guess it's too much hassle for most makers.

New EG model at Leffot. Those would stay in my closet even if given to me. To each their own.
