^ Roger, my sentiments exactly. That boot is just on a whole other level.

I may be in on the non shell version --- I bought 5 pairs of shell boots this year, I simply need more variety. I would also greatly prefer Dainite or even - dare I suggest - a commando sole. I know it would change the profile, but the latter would be a badass boot for inclement weather (snowing AGAIN as I type).

That St. Crispin boot is on a whole other level. I seriously need to stop adding things in my collection and focus on less quantity but higher quality, WOW

Agreed

I would consider doing the boot in all dark brown calf if the shaft is grained.  I could do Dainite, but commando is too bulky for me.

^ Can they keep the natural sole edge w Dainite and have it look ok? I am good on the grained shaft.

Could be interested with chain stitched Norvegese... Thoughts?

I will e-mail about what the edge dressing will look like with Dainite, but I would guess something like pictured below.

Quality Always

Quantity will follow

If we did go with leather sole (trying to avoid but admit it may be best on this boot), would Bonafe do flush steel toe taps?

This sounds like hotness.

Can somebody photoshop what they have in mind?

@budapest12, very tempting, but need a dressy bal boot more. I have two outstanding GMTO orders with Skoak already for derby boots and another in transit from GF.

I will e-mail to ask about toe taps, but I would think they could for a fairly small cost.  I agree that the double leather sole will look best.

 

In terms of appearance, I would think it would look pretty similar to the Saint Crispin's boot just with a calf upper (the soft chiseled last is fairly close to the Sailor last).  I can't competently photoshop anything, though.
