Beautiful boot but damn the edge dressing is super sloppy on that pair.

Agreed, terrible pair to showcase. These are Grail status for me so I'm quite happy they are doing another run so soon. Of course actually getting a pair Monday...

I don't have any boots without speedhooks.....are all eyelets a drawback to some?

 

As mentioned, it takes about another 30 seconds to put on or take off. Nightmare to deal with at an airport or if you are the type to remove shoes in the house. I think 9 eyelets on a cordovan boot wouldn't be bad, but I would never purchase an all eyelet boot again in something like suede or reverse chamois. The extra friction coefficient from those leathers seems to make the laces much more difficult to pull tight without individually pulling the laces through every eyelet.

 

Many feel that 9 eyes is a sleeker look, and on a more formal type of boot such as the naval, that could be a plus to some. Some members feel that speed hooks can catch on the legs of their trousers. I feel that issue might be more confined to tailored dress pants that have been hemmed up, where there is more to catch on. Relatively looser-fitting chinos or denim has never been an issue for me though.

 

Either way, those color 8 naval boots are a really beautiful pair! I already have the AF53 and am expecting the Leffot tanker pre-order to come in sometime next month so I don't think I can justify 3 boots in the same leather.

Question for you fine folks. Leffot Naval boot on Barrie w/ double leather sole all eyelids or new makeup by Yenni color 8 WT on grant w/commando eyes/hooks. I believe both have an antique edge and I think I characterized them correctly. Your input is always appreciated!

Cool. Those are nice, though I can't wear them. I'm more of a 1040 fit guy.

Love the style...I just wish they could fit my quads and hips. It's not easy finding quality pants for a guy who has a 32' waist, and 27' quads. :(

For some reason these speak to me. Even though these will require some extra time to remove, I'm thankful got Global Entry. The extra time elsewhere will afford me more moments of admiration.

Those look terrific Mike. Makes me wish I hadn't moved mine on but they just weren't getting the wear they should have in my wardrobe.
