I think the cigar color would be just as useful. I often see people post their NST shell shoes in here and get very tempted each time I see a pair. I think the NST is a love it or hate it type of shoe/boot though.

I got them from the stronghold in LA.

I am starting to prefer agatine eyelets instead of blind eyelets on these boots...

I think it looks really good in boot form.. something about the shoe thought that I do not like.

Agreed. Not a fan of the Barrie, but Mac's NST-shoe on Barrie linked above looks really good.

I missed those, too. Normally not into long-wings, but those look awesome!

That's good advice. I've had less than great experiences over the yrs in Boston. My one positive was for the Hammer & Last in Hampton, NH which is near me in Newburyport. He added a vibram/topy to two pair of RMW boots which came out fantastic.

However, when I need soles replaced, I'm sending to B. Nelson in NYC. Their JR Rendenbach sole service is stellar.

Waban Shoe Repair or The Sole Man (right across the street from each other) have been good to me. However, they can both be difficult if they're not into what you want. I could see something like a dye job being problematic.

There's a shop in Harvard Sq. at the corner of Mt. Auburn and Mass Ave. which did an impeccable topy job for me. Do not go to Felix Shoe Repair down the street.

May I ask where you are looking into for these? I have been looking for a shoe in this makeup.

TSM has cigar and whiskey NSTs on the Barrie.

And as a practical matter, they lace up (and un-lace) way more more easily and evenly with one pull...no need to do it in stages.

I think the Tanker Boot looks awesome. If I would have known in time, I certainly would have gotten in  on the pre-order on Leffot.

 

 

Great looking boot.

Absolutely gorgeous!  Congrats, and as Mac says, wear in good health.

At 10am, Canada Post tracking said my Day Trippers were on the truck for delivery. I probably won't get 'em until tomorrow. Fucking Canada Post.

Holy crap! That Stronghold CXL/Natural CXL LWB someone posted pics of is $695 clams. Bless their hearts if customers are willing to pay that.
