yeah, Kathy mentioned that she doesn't really dabble in cigar (though she did mention the SF "thor" boot today but had no update.

 

I think kathy said she had an 11.5C ravello chukka instock, and *maybe* a cigar captoe boot but I cant recall the size. will try and ascertain on thursday. my wallet hopes its not my size

 

I didnt think to ask the gentleman at the madison store last week what else might be in the pipeline.

 

fransboone has 2-3 pair that I like but the crepe sole kills it

Gotcha, yeah I am not a fan of the Crepe either. Frans did have a few left on double oaks a few months ago...

That last Cigar captoe boot they got in was super dark, almost black. I tried to squeeze my foot into an 8 because I wanted the boot so bad and I also have a bit of room in an 8.5D Grant, but it was a no go.

I would go or the Frans Boone personally. I am not a huge crepe sole fan either but his makeups are great, service is excellent and once you wear through the sole you can send them to B Nelson and get a different sole

Thanks Tifosi!

Yes, its on the Plaza. But not all eyelets...4 speed hooks.

I've been lusting after this boot for 3 years! Only comes around about once a year, and seems to totally sell out before it even hits the website.

trust me, the thought has crossed my mind (enough that I check exchange rates weekly lol)

 

the cigar indys have my attention, but at the minimal frequency that I wear through the rotation, it would take forever to need a resole. 

 

sadly, I'm coming to the conclusion that it's time to thin the herd..

According to their site, Frans still has the Cigar LWBs in 10.5d in stock...

Plaza Chukka sounds awesome! I honestly find Chukkas a little awkward to wear due to them being ankle high... I have the 8 Barrie Chukka... Nice boot though.
