Well done sir. Its a shame we don't see more boots and shoes that have had a real life... anything other then storage, shoe trees and office carpets. Its a shame I've lost interest in visiting this thread after a wile because all the footwear is the same condition. You have brought hope to me in this thread. Thank you

I always appreciate seeing footwear that hints at past adventures too.  There is a certain art to keeping shoes and boots pristine, and I can get behind keeping business dress shoes in tip top shape.  Boots - to me - are a different story.  I wear them the way I think they were meant to be worn.  BUT, I also try to care for them as well.

I haven't tried to influence the creases in my shoes using the pencil trick, but I hear it works well for others.  Shell rolls on plain toe boots/shoes is always a crap shoot.

One of my favorite whiskey make ups. The Leffot Tanker. I love these so much I had to wear them today.

Sweet boots Steve.
Would you mind posting a few more pics showing different angles?

When I asked will about this he said that because this is a smaller run than usual, we might see them in 12 months! Just in time for fall (2016)!

Wow, some great boots worn today. 

 

Day two of boot week for me - Tanker Tuesday.

Let's hope! I'm on 3 pre-orders at the moment and 2 are non-shell as I'm trying to build that arsenal up. Will said that Alden only has 2-3 people capable of producing NSTs, which is why there is such a delay on all those. The Context tanker has been 6 months running now. Not sure if the Leffot tanker ever showed up.

So nice. One of my top grails. I doubt I'll live to see a pair on my feet.

I'm a little late to this but my goodness these are so cool. Could be the angle and/or lighting but these almost look two-tone. Color 6 on the vamp and color 8 on the rest, kind of like saddles. I posted a few days ago that I really don't know what patina is. Well, I think I just witnessed it on a pair, and they are..........Spectacular!

First time on the run in cigar boots. Already waited out a fire drill.
