Kind of reminds me of these beauties.....
I've got a ways to go, but I'm gunning for you @chipshot. These LHS's are definitely growing on me. I especially like the sockless look you sport so well.
Ha! Thanks Shawn .. In freakin sane restoration. They look awesome. Embrace the black shell and it's versatility ..

Well, nice lady next to me on my plane leaving DCA last week looked at my Alpine Grain NST boots and asked if they were Doc Martens. Does that count for anything??

My Leffot tan suede LWB came in - ordered these snuff the next week. Really good decisions. Not a drop of rain permeated today during the maiden voyage. Nanotechnology is priceless

Your Suede LWBs are terrific! Nano is great. Congrats on your maiden voyage.

You Color 8 LHSes look terrific. The lined LHS is much better with socks. Unlined can go either way.

Unboxing my new #8 LWB

 

Sadly I am going to continue our conversation from earlier...these shoes were straight out of the box (never saw my foot), but the right shoe is pretty creased. These cost me nearly $800 as I was buying from The Bureau (exchange rate and shipping).. Thoughts... I felt like they were pretty creased. BTW the left looks creased but is fine in person.

that's unfortunate. 

i would keep if the right shoe creasing was the ONLY issue. you're likely to find other issues with your next pair if you return these. you will also make those same creases in about 10 minutes of wear.

My thoughts, too. Which is why I'm leaning toward keeping them. I think it was just a slight disappointment

If you are so inclined, try and wrangle a discount from the store. Be nice, but say you are disappointed.

Thanks, can't agree more on that...

If it weren't for the fact that they are the antique edged ones, I would say send them back. However, this version of the #8 LWB is harder to come bye, so I would definitely let the store know your dissatisfaction, but keep the shoes. Those creases can be worked out with a deer bone and polishing. However, after a wear or 2they're going to crease.

I understand your position, It's just frustrating when they arrive already creased! You paid $800 for the shoes and G** D*** you should be the one creasing them! angry.gif

Hahahah thanks for the validation! I am debating whether to send them an email or not, but I'm definitely keeping them. The reason I bought them from the UK (and I live in the USA) is for the antique edge!

Keep them, you will regret not having these. All shell creases, for me .. I like them. You walk 10 minute in #8 and you have bitchin creases that will only look better as life moves on.....

You should contact them. As they might give a slight discount.  It never hurts to ask!
