Does anyone have these snuff suede parajumpers from Frans Boone? 

 

http://www.fransboonestore.com/collections/alden/products/alden-x-frans-boone-snuff-suede-parajumper-boots-22 

 

They are going to be damn near $700 after shipping at the current exchange rate.  Would like to see some real world pics of 'em if possible.

Snuff barrie on Crepe was a jcrew makeup.

Snuff...definitely I like them both but the tan on flexwelt get much less wear than the snuff. For me snuff is a 3.5 season color while tan is less versatile. My only gripe is that the crepe is so heavy compared to the unlined leydon version and don't pack as small. But that's more an issue for packing/traveling than wearing. I've picked up some Rancourt suede chukkas with a crepe-like sole and they were so much lighter than the Barrie/crepe version.

 

I'll look into B. Nelson resoling my crepe with something lighter when the time comes. It'll be a few years own the road.

I have White's boot Smokejumper in brown and looking for my first Shell Cordovan shoe for a bit dressier. Please advice which model to start with, but not black only cigar and #8.

Thanks that is what I thought however my fashion sense is limited. I have the Rancourt sand Chukka from the clearance that Club Monaco ran and I think it is constructed beautifully but I know I want a snuff Chukka so I can not see me wearing the sand..I have to say though for only $137 I am tempted to just keep the damn thing.

 

If I get the Chukka I want in Brown CXL or Shell I may get Snuff boots instead.

If anybody is on the fence about selling a brown shell wingtip boot in 8.5 or 9 depending on maker. Please PM me. Would prefer something besides leather sole.

That color 4 looks very similar to Ravello in some lights. I dig that shade as it seems less red

I was actually thinking the same thing. That is a nice shade of 4.

Speaking of DC Cigar CT boots -- broke these out yesterday for the first time in a while.  Trying to get some wear on them.  I prefer boots to have a nice lived in look, especially in cigar shell.

I justordered something similar from BB that you may want to check out. Plain toe and crepe sole are primary differences but the price difference is significant.
