Damn you guys are right.

OK. The Leffot tankers are staying. Leffot LWB not so much.

You could just change the welt and edge trim to black yourself right? Shouldn't be too difficult assuming you don have the shakes? I like the antique version but much prefer this black trim model. Really wish I had taken the plunge and gotten the black cordovan version at the same time as this one. For some reason Context don't seem to be reissuing these, at least at the moment.

I have the Context version and have had thought long and hard about parting with them.  The combination Barrie last and black edge make them a bit clunky and they exist in this weird grey area of being a formal informal boot (or informal formal boot) that doesn't really hit the mark in either way.  If folks are after a more formal wearing boot with the dark edge, you won't get it with the Context version.  

 

I desperately want the Leffot LWB but missed out on the recent pre-order.

I prefer the dark welt and dark edging on literally every color 8 model. peepwall[1].gif

That is not to say I dislike the antique edging/welt. I just don't like it as much.

I've owned both the antique edge color 8 LWB and color 8 tankers from Leffot. I decided I like dark edge color 8 better and sold both for cigar replacements (cigar LWB and cigar Indy boots). The right answer is to have all four of these models. I will tell you that I wear the cigar versions a lot more. That said the Leffot Color 8 tanker is one of my regrets. I am in the market for another color 8 boot on a dark sole (either double leather or commando).
