Good Lord! You know the answer: Both!
And neither with blue-colored jeans. Wrong color shoe for those jeans.
Beyond the style point, and in all seriousness, I like the perforated captoe better in a boot. I think a boot with a plain toe, plain shaft, blind eyelets and speedhooks that blend into the color of the boot (as opposed to contrast) is just too much plain. While that perforated captoe does not add much more ornamentation that the captoe, it does add some and I think looks better in a boot. I also think the shape of the captoe looks better than the plain toe.
Classic SF comment, ask about shoes and get advice about pants......Haha
Tuff call on which one, I'd probably go with the plain toe boot if you can't keep both.post #87754 of 1224167/30/14 at 5:33pmpost #87755 of 1224167/30/14 at 5:36pmpost #87756 of 1224167/30/14 at 5:43pmpost #87757 of 1224167/30/14 at 5:44pmpost #87758 of 1224167/30/14 at 5:52pmQuote:Quote:

Both models are actually lighter than what they look in the pic.
