Dasco for shop-shop.uk.com. They are pricey but the nicest I've seen.

I'm not sure about inelegant, but it does raise the question: do balmoral boots come in ankle height with two or three eyes like blucher boots?

Dasco they are.

High quality goods Panzer. I highly recommend them.

Lobbs are $110 (on the right)

that's a pretty reasonable price for boot trees

We'll agree to disagree but I find the sheer amount of laces as comparable to elegance as if someone wore their PRICELESS Lobb skates with their tuxedo. There's just something so, roughtrade, about nicely tailored suit trousers revealing copious amounts of laces on a boot. I'm sure Connemera knows the feeling.

looks great but not my style...too many eyelets up top...

I didn't know Lobb had boot trees. When I bought my Brooklands, they gave me shoe trees. I didn't think to ask if they had shoe tress and of course assumed if they did, they would have provided them with the boots.

I wonder if they will let me exchange them? Probably not!

Ditto. The extensive lacing is not very elegant.

Just to be clear: are those of you who don't like them saying that I should have gotten hook speed lacers instead? Or that you simply don't like high boots at all?

I think an ankle height balmoral boot would look assinine, personally. Hook speed lacers have a hiking boot connotation and would look much less elegant than eyelets.

I personally find these much classier than a Chelsea boot, or at least far better suited for wearing with a suit. When the trouser leg is down, you can't tell it's not a shoe -- it looks just like EG Berkeley, or maybe Gladstone.

I agree that eyelets all the way up seem much more elegant than hook lacing. Eyelets give you more latitude for lacing styles also.

When should blucher boots be worn? With odd jackets or heavy tweed suits?

In the snow.

Ideally, I would never wear blucher boots with a business suit. But in the real world, I have been unable to find cordovan balmoral boots. And cordovan handles bad weather much, much better than calf. I have one pair of cordo blucher boots and another on the way. They are great for bad weather. I have yet to have my pair soak through, whereas calf shoes soak through rather easily.

Beautiful boots but, would you wear them in sleet & snow?
