The whiskey indy + green combo wins.
Should probably get rid of the blue boots...

Is there any way to mitigate these creases? Would I get these creases anyway--or would they be differently located because of the specificity of my feet?

 

These boots are otherwise lovely! :-)

 

Thanks SO MUCH for all your thoughts!!!

Yeah, those clearly show signs of try on. I personally would not keep them especially since they are a readily available model. The decision becomes much more difficult if that was a Whiskey Boot or something... ;-)

Ha! Any suggestions on what I should do with these unacceptable blue boots? Should I also include my Navy Shell One-Piece belt with them for $1?

I'm still up in the air on them--I think I may try deer bone treatment plus the mac method to see if I can reduce the creases; they cut me a $200 discount, so they feel like good value at $530.

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

post #109165 of 122416
The Dr. Jones boot is cool. There is something about the Indy on Plaza in #8.

@MrDV - you always bring out the #4 to torment some fellows. Good work.

The deer bone doesn't really reduce creases. At least not in my opinion. It will only reduce the bloom (white area) in the creases temporarily which only makes them less visible. The creases are set. They aren't going anywhere. If you are keeping the shoes, they creases(and bloom) will return the first time you bend your foot.

Breck, unfortunately they were a one-off from Epaulet. It was from their previous "Ends for Friends" and was called "Kiss the Blarney". I believe only one or two pairs were available. They have another Ends for Friends sales event going on RIGHT NOW!
