Nothing better than sitting down and crossing your legs to show the full boot. People are all like "ohhhh".

Although I agree with Ironist that I love the look of the button, but have to be realistic that most folks will be like WTF! I usually don't care about that, but it is a bit over the top.

I think because of Leffot's Button Boots were Blake Constructed Soles. I just specified it to be safe.

I'm also doing a balmoral boot, but in the 773 which i heard is similar to the 946. I'm going with a 8UK and lace them tightly. Better slightly loose than too snug.

I think you can afford to do a 9UK for the boot and a 8.5UK for the blucher. Hope it helps!

Thanks man!

Oh and I always thought boots always looked better on their own but once worn, shoes are better since you can see the whole shoe but only a portion of the boot. The lines seem like they were interrupted and the picture is incomplete. Just my 2 cents. Still love and buy a lot of boots.

In my defense, all boots are shoes but not all shoes are boots. Think about that biggrin.gif.

All boots are shoes, whoever heard of such junk? LOL

 

 

Sounds to me like he's trying to get away with it using the insanity defense.

Laughed so loud I almost woke up my wife. Would not have been easy to explain to her why I was laughing.

What ever happened to the good old days?

 

 

Have you ever heard of Funk and Wagnalls? LOL
