My very humble collection, before SF. After SF I made some "better" purchases that will post later...
Most of the "character" comes from the lack of shoe trees (that's something I learned in SF)
From left to right
Caceres (made in Ecuador)
Democrata boots (brazilian maker)
Piedrahita (made in Ecuador)
Some italian maker, Don't remember the brand
Hegarty of Kettering
I know they are not CJ's, EG's, etc, but, don't be so hard on them when (if) commenting.
