I was initially averse to the brogueing on the J. Crew color 8 perforated cap toe boot but am trying to come around on them as I love the flat welt, closed heel, and Barrie last. Has anyone else been able to warm up to them after initially disliking that detail? Or should I just spend the extra $200 on a non-sale pair of the new LS boot or a straight cap toe boot and live with the 360 welt?
While I would have slightly preferred a straight tip on the J.Crew #8 boot, the brogueing doesn't bother me and I am very happy with the boots. As I mentioned in a previous post, I too love the flat welt and close heel. It just makes the gunboat Barrie last look so much sleeker. I got them on sale as well and the brogueing on them just gives me an excuse to purchase a straight tip #8 boot in the future!
