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 would probably get a lot of wear out of something like that for business casual purposes. I have a pair of NST tanker boots in color #8 on the barrie (and am wearing them right now) and they are my go to boots when I want to wear boots to the office. 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 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.
Problem is, they know that they don't have to because assholes like us keep on snatching them up.
sort of but eventually they'll disenfranchise the american buyer because their volume won't change... they're still super rare outside of the U.S. and the japanese/swedes/europeans generally will pay far more.
who told you $695? They have a Alden Wing tip boot out of #8 that they are selling for $695. I paid $545 for these. not sure where you got that price from
