A couple of new arrivals at Leather Soul. Snuff suede and brown CXL barrie WT boots.

Is it just me or does this snuff look quite light?

I sure hope so.  I really wanted some #8 LWBs, but I didn't want to buy them on a whim without budgeting for it.

Edit: I didn't realize these were chukkas, which explains 6 eyelets versus 5.

thank you

  2. I read MANY negative reviews saying that NRO tends to be unresponsive when you try to initiate a return, and when they do respond, they try to force store credit in place of a true return.
It's possible that my experience could have been fine, but ultimately I didn't want to risk ending up with $500 in store credit. Buying through The Shoe Mart, for example, would be more expensive than NRO's sale, but I know that I can trust their return policy (which for a beginner like myself is important, I think). I could regret that decision if others report on positive results.

good decision

Hmm...just looked and Shoemart is out of those. Looking for size 8 barrie or equivalent.

I have this shoe, I will say it grabs the most attention of all the shoes I own (not exaggerating here). These are great shoes

Looks like snuff to me

The brass eyelets with that snuff suede and dbl natural leather sole is an amazing combo.

Why thank you!

I suggested this makeup to Tom a couple of years ago. Wore my pair today and love 'em. In fqct, thes are the boots i mentioned in my ambulance story a few pages back. Just wish it had a pull-up tab.

Where can one pick up a pair of whiskey chukkas? Have been looking for a pair for awhile
