Boots Boots Boots - For Boot Guys Only - Page 196

post #2926 of 3344

FYI gents - just saw these freaking AWESOME GMTO Bonafe chukkas posted on the Skoak Facebook page this morning.  Rendered in Tarnsjo Oak grain.  I was kicking myself for somehow missing out, and I'm not alone.  We have three guys in for a rerun of this exact boot and only one more needed to make it happen.  Pic speaks for itself.  If you missed out once, don't miss out twice!

| find navy very versatile, though My navy footwear is all of the dressy variety.  I'd have no problem working in navy grain derby boots (always wanted those Conistons, in case that wasn't clear) but I don't think it would be as versatile as, say, a medium brown.

 

PS - I was forgetting about my navy suede chukkas - and I wear the heck out of those casually - but my comment on comparative versatility still stands.

 

 

Roger or anyone else.  Where would you put Tärnsjö and country calf on the rankings?  Is country calf the same as grain?  Curious to know how tough Tärnsjö is.

I have zero experience with Tarnsjo, so can't help you there.

Country Calf is just a marketing term for a type of grain leather.

While you didn't ask, I'll add that I don't think Utah is as tough or durable as grain.

Fresh off the UPS truck this morning. Alden Indy 40502HC in brown chromexcel on a commando sole. Sized down a half-size to a 11E but I think I should have gone with an 11D as there's some heel slip even with thick socks and it's likely to get worse as the chromexcel stretches?

I looked at the same boots yesterday online. Alden's are super expensive but what a beautiful pair of boots. Wow!!!
