Thanks, all.

I find the Detroit last runs large I had to go down a size from the Rain last.

Got the Carmina cordovan chukka.  Can't wait!

Great pickup!

I vote to run the U Cap boot again - burgundy shell or cognac smile.gif

We need more sizes

would be great in calf or suede some mixture

^^^ I'd love to see a calf version of the u-wing boot.

I've always liked these.

 

Also maybe easier to do with the cordovan shortage.

Yeah. Leaves has noted that Carmina has a burgundy museum calf that's almost black. That would be a great version of the u-cap boot ... among others.

Leaves or Gabriel mentioned that it was in the pipeline a while ago but it just popped up today. I got on the waitlist and grabbed a pair as soon as I saw it in an email. As NAMOR noted, this batch of shell came out just right and the details are spot on.

I like those as well, but after someone said that medallion looked like a monkey, I just see animals...I'm on to a fat owl. They just need to go back to the female anatomy for inspiration. I want lady parts on my $2k boot, not animals.

You were a female anatomy part and now some animal took your bootses.

I would be in for that (I'd like to see an example of the calf first, but from the sound of it I would be in for that).  I like the look of the existing U-wing boot, I just don't need another brown boot.
