I would count it as such, but what do I know I'm only a shoe geek. LOL

"Chelsea boots", you don't say "Chelsea shoes".  They qualify as boots.

See, I told you I didn't know what I was talking about. LOL

It's a pretty dainty boot. I think most of my boots would jump that Chelsea in a back alley

Oops, forgot that interchange.  Sorry, retracted.  It's a bootie.

Yeah, agreed.  The Viberg waxed flesh boots weigh in at 2lbs per boot!

Gorgeous footwear, but Chelseas in general strike me as rather shoeish. Maybe it has to do with how sleek most tend to look, and how, well, royal English their place in history is.

Love those GGs, though. Wish I could afford them! wink.gif

Walkton in Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry GMTO



Specs:
Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
Model: Walkton
Color: Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry
Last: MH71 or TG73
Sole: Oak Bark Sole
Lining: Rioja or Cherry

Interested parties:
@mw313 - (narrow width) (MH71 or TG73)
@TtownMD - (E width) (prefer TG73 but fine with MH71)
@Steel28
@Ironist
@JubeiSpiegel
@harki (E width) (prefer MH71 but fine with TG73)
@nickrut (E width on MH71) (F width on TG73)
@bsmw (E width on MH71 (prefers)) (F width on TG73)
@CFML (F width on MH71) + metal toe tips


@easilyamused (E width) (TG73 or MH71)
Anyone still have interest on this one, so we can then have two GMTOs for the Rosewood Kudu?


And just to clarify, the kudu would only be at the quarters (where the cherry is in these pictures above) so the cherry would be at the toe (so the medallion would look okay), the facing, and the heel.

These have proven to be SUCH a terrific pair of summer boots.  They have seen far more wear than I had anticipated.

Those are gorgeous and would really fit well into my rotation (although somewhat too similar to my 64E chestnut Utahs).  202 last?
