What's really crazy is that we can be here in one year and that boot might still not be ready.

Also, I am not on that one but if you wanted out... you know who to call!

- Brown Chumus Suede (Moulded)

- Dark Brown Suede

- Chocolate Suede (LS)

- Black Suede

- Green Suede

- Hunting Green Suede

- Olive Suede

- Navy Blue Suede

- Blue Suede

 

I am not sure if that list above of 17 colors is really more like 13 or 14.

 

 

Is Humus (Leffot - http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/alden/44912f-cooney-boot.html) the same as Chocolate (LS)?  I can't find any pics online from anyone that has both to compare side by side.

Those are two beautiful boots. It is indeed amazing how much the material can impact the look and feel of the boot. I find it equally amazing that the Last can essentially do the same thing!

That's really good to know. Thank you for passing that info on and I may look into it in the future.
