Here's a pair of Santoni boots I picked up around three years ago - my very first pair, actually.
I have never seen this model since, in any shop, catalog or forum. They are an unusual and quite breathtaking design, much pointier than most Santonis, with unusual stitching patterns and beautifully antiqued leather, which reveals brown, grey and even olive hues depending on the light.
I mistreated them rather badly last year when I hiked up the Lion's Head in Cape Town. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision and I only remembered what was on my feet after I had already paid off the cab and struck out on the trail...
Anyway they got fairly scuffed and dusty, but a lick of Renovateur and some polish has mostly restored their lustre.
