The photo from the rear looks like one of the boots is slanted but that's not the case. I truly can't tell what's wrong with the boots. Some minor scratches and marks but this is whiskey shell... it's not going to be flawless.
I feel like I lucked out.

clearly flawed because they're not my size.

im so jelly right now. great catch sir.

Is the stitching uneven at the back of the boot? These look really good to me. Be happy with seconds that look clean! I think there is real value when you get pair with a very minor blemish.

I ordered a pair with the smallest indentation on the heel cup that was corrected with some pressure and brushing, I love the seconds list! Well done. Also, I love when they are pairs that did not sell or aren't even marked as seconds!

How do I get in the seconds list? I unsubscribed myself from TSM's advertisements and that must have included the seconds email frown.gif

Thanks for the welcome! Do most of you guys wear shell or calf leather?

Wow, you sure did luck out! Congratulations! I hope they're not size 9, that would make me very jealous.

I'm not sure if it's just the angle of the picture but it looks like the shaft is higher on the left boot than the right. This picture:

could be but it appears the left boot is slightly closer to the camera which should make it appear relatively bigger

Looking good. That's a nice looking Blucher. I had and sold a pair due to fit, plus it's pretty close to the LWB.

You lucked out? To own two exact boots in nearly identical shades...sort of ridiculous if you ask me..It is like buying whole milk and 2% milk at the same time...really? Why waste the money....Size 12 right? Which one you want to sell me...willing to help correct this ridiculous mess you made for yourself.

I am pretty sure @Kahuna75 is making a joke.

Those boots look great. But it can be curious to have the same style in whiskey and Ravello when the shades are too close...

trusty ol' snuff roys today:



also, i hate to spam the thread but it is dire, we need 1 more person the C&J brown shell Dundee (http://www.styleforum.net/t/362536/crockett-jones-mto-central/2895#post_8128825). Medallion captoe boots, it's gonna be a great makeup and C&J shell at near Alden prices (just a hair over $800 last time we got a quote). Great chance to take advantage of the strong USD!
