Balmoral Boot Porn - Page 47

post #691 of 1096

Just came across this collection of vintage bal boots @ the shoe-aristocat. Pretty wild combinations.

post #692 of 1096
OK, I'm getting ready to take the plunge on a pair of balmoral boots, but they seem like a somewhat elusive beast. With the exception of the Crockett & Jones Somerville, I haven't been able to find a pair for sale online. So I'm turning to you, the keepers of the balmoral boot flame, for a little help.

Here are the parameters:

I have about $800 to lay down on these, so anything beyond that is probably outside of my price range. I know this rules out bespoke, but surely some must be available in RTW.

I'd prefer a pair in brown (suede uppers are a plus) but wouldn't look askance at a pair in black.

No medallion on the toe, only cap or punch.

I must actually be able to purchase a pair, either in the Houston area, or online. Anything I'd have to travel long distances to get would blow my budget.

I don't own any of those boots, but I like to ogle them. Good luck. Report back.

Fantastic!

Franco's is unfortunately out of my size, though.

Damn, Namor, those are killer! I'm in the same boat as kungapa; Franco's is out of stock of my size. How is the quality of Rider? I saw the Rider x Leffot tweed MTO pair a while back, and they look absolutely amazing. (And I think there was a black shell with red sole pair that might have been Rider, as well)

You can also MTO a bal boot from Carmina for under $800 in anything other than shell if the brown suede Forest captoe isn't perfect.

Thanks to you both for the recommendations. I had seen the C&J boots on the Upper Shoes site. Any details on the Carmina MTO program? I've scoured their website, and haven't been able to find any info. Do they offer a choice of leathers and lasts? MTO may be a better deal for me, as my feet are a size and a half different.

Does anyone know where you could order this?

I think MTO is the only option. For example left is 9 and right is 10.5?

No bal boots offered by Meermin. These are the AS millers orders by member "AJV". I think he ordered directly from AS

Left is 8E and right is 9.5D. Because they're about the same in actual width, I am able to get away with a 9.5, but a MTO situation where I could get the right size shoe for each foot would be desirable.
