What to do what to do?

That happened to me at one point and I ended up getting an additional discount. I think mine ended up being only like $450 or around there after all was said and done. Figured the discount was worth it since they'd look a bit scuffed on the bottom after just a wear or two from me anyway.

Quick shell noob question for you guys. Around the vamp of my 4060s the shell itself looks a little dry-ish where it creases as the color looks lighter in those areas. Is this just a sign that they might need to be conditioned? On one boot, around the eyestay a little bit of the finish is peeling a little as well. Can this be fixed with a little color 8 cream of some kind? Thanks.

That is more than likely "Cordovan bloom". It is the oils in the leather pushing to the surface where it is creased. Nothing to be concerned about. How old are they and have you conditioned them before?

I was hoping for something like that natural PCT. But I still like the Jcrew version from last year, hoping they do it again. The Cooney looks fantastic as well.

I have had those in my shopping cart atleast 25 times and i just haven't pulled the trigger. This may have pushed me over!

They are some great boots with a lovely profile. I needed some snuff suede in my life. I would highly recommend my friend.

They're new, but who knows how long they've been in the stockroom at madison. Haven't conditioned them yet.

Those blue suede LWB with the eyelets are killer! Still holding out for another tanker release instead.

I hope this will alleviate some of the concerns with this preorder, thanks!

So is the make up like these: http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/pre-orders/40349hc-pre-order.html

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

those are tempting...

Just snagged a pair of Leffot snuff short wing boots in Plaza. Was used for a month. Don't have anything plaza so hoping I sized it right. Looking forward to something more sleek since all I have his barrie.

It's a shame you are about a month too late as I just sold mine! They'd pair nicely with your new LWB...

If they're an 8.5D they won't fit you. Trust me. I'll take them off your hands.
