If your life depended on it what would you choose...

 

#8 NST boot on commando or Leffot #8 LWB?

 

NST boot on commando, but this is coming from a boot guy that isn't really into LWBs.

Do you wear boots all year?? I get looked at funny because I do, so my wingtip collection is pretty minimal

Totally wardrobe dependent - just figure out if a boot or shoe fits your needs more. All things being equal, I'd choose a shoe, but that's because I feel a LWB goes better with a wider variety of outfits. If you are wearing denim 75% of the time, a boot may be better.

Yes I do. My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy. That's part of what my acquisition today is geared towards balancing out more. wink.gif

I live in denim year round, personally and professionally because I work in a creative industry.

Anyone know if the fransboone color8 plaza indy is being restocked anytime soon?  Looks like they restocked the black version recently.

 

Also, after sleeping on it a few nights ended up ordering the Leffot tobacco chamois tanker today.  Glad I didn't wait any longer, ended up being the last pair in my size

1)  Those were restocked like maybe 5/6 months ago?  At the time there was a note up saying how they didn't anticipate getting another run for at least 2 years.  I don't recall exactly when that was (maybe that estimate on time is wrong) but I remember thinking very hard about that.  I passed, though.

 

2)  I think you are going to love those tankers.  I have been wearing them a lot.  The character of the chamois is really unique IMO.

I was just unsure if I wanted to just spend a bit extra and get a pair of shell boots instead, but saw your pics and decided to grab the tankers while I could.  Probably going to use them as my go to snow/rain boot.

Thank you so much!

I'm jealous of your Color 8's! My color 8 is nearly black, while you seem to have red/purple nailed!

Id go NST boot as well. I wear my boots all year round, of course not in the blazing sun but I see nothing wrong with putting them on for a evening dinner.

Alden Madison has a very similar boot in brown CXL. A restock just came in about a month ago.

JCrew had a natural CXL boot that a few of us own. Not sure if they still do. Its one of my favorites.

If you don't mind the modified last, moulded shoe usually stocks a bunch of PCT boots.  Check with them to see what they have in stock, but these have all been available at some point and still might be in stock.
