Off the top of anyone's head, are these being sold anywhere?

Thanks.

Right you are! These are the Leffot Cooney boots.

Update: Alden got right back to me and these will be in the mail for repair tomorrow. Can't say enough about the wonderful customer service I've received from them.

Thanks.

 

I'll keep an eye out.

 

If I do see something close I need to decide between the 2 as I do like the commando sole that's on the shoes.

 

But I think the boot might be more versatile than the medallioned blucher. I think....

Anything I can do to remove the diagonal crease? I first thought it was a scuff (which is no big deal) but something must have hit the shoe and I didn't notice.

Thanks!

Sorry, I should have said they are black. I really would like a pair of #8, but I have these vintage shell Florsheim LWBs I previously posted. The Florsheims are in terrific condition, fit well and I paid around $300 for them. I just can't justify satisfying my Pokemon "Gotta get them all" tendencies by laying out the money for the duplication. Instead, I spent it by ordering some #8 V tips with Reverse Welt 360, Antique Welt & Sole Edge and Commando Sole on the Barrie last. Here are the #8 LWB I mentioned for comparison.

What do y'all use to condition your CXL boots? VSC? Lexol? I know it's a low maintainance leather, but my boots are getting dry.

I've used VSC with good results, but the last few times I've tried Alden's natural boot cream and really like the way it shines up. Ill probably stick to that going forward as I like the way it looks.

I have only used Reno and a brush.

Nice boots. One of my grails. I have too many others, which is why I didn't bid.

Thanks! I actually thought they were going to end up much higher. They ended right around my limit. I have no regrets though. It was one of my grails.

Congrats @JayDotz.  Glad they went to a fellow SF'er.
