When you need casual styles and it pops in odd stock you just can't resist

Brown grain/Oak Calf combo looks great! If possible some heel and toe burnishing would be nice. Either way, you can write me down as CONFIRMED.

I just received my Carlos Santos field boots today, opened them up, and fell in love. The proportions are perfect, they're softer than I expected, and I am certain that those of you getting in on the GMTO's are going to be satisfied. I'll try to add a couple pics later, but Skoak does a great job and they're quite accurate in their photos. This is my 4th pair of CS and they're a great value, cheaper than AE for the most part, sleeker and more comfortable.

Top down, on foot pics would be amazing. Glad you like them!!

I'd love to hear more information about fit as well, for me, particularly in the instep, since mine is relatively high and has given me sizing issues before.

post #23095 of 23850
also have the SKOAK DOAK Galways and I say you guys should go for it (the CS makeup)

no worries
post #23096 of 23850

Dammit I have Galways AND St. C. boots in a similar colorway and will still have to try hard not to jump on the CS oak calf / brown grain.  Time to hide my wallet.

it's a bargain, not even going to put a dent on your wallet, roger. lol.

I am from Australia, can never justify spending big bucks on boots before, things have changed.

Love the enabling in this thread.

 

Looking forward to seeing pictures of the CS field boot.

Fit: I take a 10.5UK in Carmina rain, which I have been liquidating due to a weird toe rub I get. 11UK in Simpson works pretty well for me. I'm an 11D in Alden Barrie, and 11.5D in most AE lasts. These are 10.5 UK and fit snug all over, but quite well. I have three pair in the 234 last, and this last is a bit more snug and lower profile. It works well for me so far, and my feet were a bit swollen from a long run this afternoon.

Look: They have a sleek profile. They get me pretty close to an EG Galway, which is my grail, but I can never quite make myself actually buy, mostly because I've never had the opportunity to try it on. I just got rid of a pair of Rain last Carmina derby boots, and I like these, so I will probably also get rid of an old pair of Grenson that are starting to show their age, in a bad way.

Overall, very happy. I think they'll loosen up a bit, and my feet aren't typically this swollen, so they will probably be worn quite often. Sleek enough to wear with chinos, great with jeans. Sorry for the mediocre pics.

If I see a GMTO that is substantially different, I'm getting another pair. Maybe a black suede/grain combo.
