How much would you guys pay for these Cantors?





Also... would it be a stupid idea to try to dye the suede on these or my plain toes black if I ended up getting them? Don't really need 2 in the same colour

anyone know where I can get the charcoal polka data laramie in a US 10 or 10.5? I'm in San Francisco and Maas & Stacks has them in 9.5, which is too small for me.

Picked these up for that Japanese designer take on a Southwestern drifter.

What do you guys think of the black bison virgils? I've been struggling with this for the better part of a month now. Having sold off my wolverines, I don't own any boots, but need a pair for the colder months. If the soles get too slippery I have a vibram certified cobbler near me who can re-sole with something sturdier, though he thinks the christy should be fine. Bison leather looks pretty durable and I read that it ages well. I've been looking for a dark brown or black boot that's not dressy so these fit the bill. Concerns are over the price and durability/waterproofness.

You're not wearing them in disgusting snowy weather, right? I used to have a pair of gore-tex 7 hole moc toe, but they were useless in Canadian winter.

I've suggested this before, but visvim boots aren't for harsh winters. I christy soles have not done well for me in southern winters, so I'm not sure how well they would work in harsher climates.

That said, I dislike black for workboot styles like this. I much prefer brown shades, but bison is a cool leather. The brown bison buffalo has a great texture.

Southern winters are a different animal. You get a lot of water washing oil off the roads, which can get quite slippery. For Northern winters, in a city, you main concern is water proofing. Streets are generally well shoveled. Of course, there are ice patches, but only crampons are any use for that.

Personally, used shoes sketch me out, and more practically, a used footbed is never going to reconform, but if you are comfortable with it, more power to you.

Fok, that's probably the most perfect boot I've seen in a long long time.

wow I thought you guys were gonna be like don't think just kop. I wanted a dark colored boot since I have a lot of grey/black/navy stuff. Does visvim make a boot that can actually survive a northern winter? Cuz the only other option I can think of now are katahdins.

Haven has a picture of ss15 (I think?).  The boots in front and also in the very back look really cool.  I'm in the market for 1 or 2 more virgils (pretty much in love w/ them), but too bad there just isn't any stock.  Are we expecting them to pretty much do a single spot drop sometime in the next few months?
