Co-sign. With my last two pair of boots having suede shafts, I can't go back to shell, calf, or even grain shafts. Suede is just too dang comfy.

 

However, I also don't wear suits everyday.

I haven't thought of that, but you're right. I like the looks of an all calf boot but, the fineness of calf/suede is very tempting.
I'm looking for a BalBoot in calf/suede but can't find anywhere...

That's money. Good call @rnguy001

These Ravens landed today, added them when I joined the chukka gmto. Figured it would assist with the instant gratification factor, why I wait for the chukkas and CS field boots.

Thanks again Skoak team for great service!

Those are great, I actually have that exact same pair myself. It's just something very distinguished about those Enzo Bonafé dress shoe patterns. It's something about the punching and all the little details that just breathes subtle elegance and style.

I'm in, field boot bonanza it is! 

 

Edit: Commenting on the pictures @Leaves posted before me my preferences would be oak calf/grain although i'm fine with the other combo also 

post #23068 of 23720

Thanks @Leaves ! 

I'm more in the oak calf/brown grain team but I'm also fine with the other combo.

@Turbal, I prefer oak calf upper and brown grain shaft. Possible for a burnished toe?

The oak/oak combi shows too little contrast. The brown grain, which is what the upper/shaft of the RTW that sparked off this spate of GMTOs, also seems richer and lighter than @Leaves' swatch shows.

Also, dainite branded soles. Thanks!
