Balmoral Boot Porn - Page 80

I am more fond of these!

Leather is Spanish High Shine Veg tan Calf. The tanned skins are imported into the UK and cut in Northampton.

Price seems really good. Only limited to 25 pairs this week.

My Meermin group MTO boots.

^ Very nice. It seems the two-tone-two-leather make-up has become the received wisdom, for good reason. There is a subtlety and class about the whole boot being in one colour, but with variegation in shade and texture.

 

Must admit I would prefer my Somervilles to have speed/ski hooks instead of eyelets all the way up. The more traditional look is inadequate recompense for their being a complete bitch to get on and off.

^^ Both of those looks great.

I am glad that you liked them. thank you!

yes, the act of me not putting caps on my boots is an act of defiance towards what the rest of the industry does. It is how I differentiate my brand, by attempting to NOT do what everyone else is.

I prefer doing almost the same thing as everyone else, just a little better. happy.gif

Anyone have experience with quality of this boot/maker? I mostly have Allen Edmonds, (fifth, first, Dundee, dalton)but recently bought two pair of Meermin. Mixed feelings on Meermin's. Curious where these my fit in quality spectrum.
Thanks in advance

If you snoozed, you lost. These sold out. Hope he does this Kickstarter he mentioned ..

Decided to part with my Somervilles. Even with insoles and the facings fully closed, I have far too much room around my shallow instep. I guess boots will be problematic for a low volume foot like mine. A pity, as I absolutely love this style.

 

They're on the bay if anyone's interested: Crockett & Jones Somerville balmoral boot black calf / charcoal suede UK 12 E
