I wanted to show you guys this bit of customizing done by B. Nelson.
This was the J. Crew/Alden black shell wingtip boot from last year. I wanted to change the look of it and so added a storm welt and dbl. leather Rendenbach sole. As you can see the edging was done in natural/antique.
I love them and now want to smack my head against a wall as they are too tight. This boot was always a bit snug but is now decidedly too snug for me. I usually wear a thicker boot sock for our NE winters and can no longer do it with this pair. So it's a Barrie 7.5 that fits like a 7.
If anyone is interested it's on the B+S forum. They'll go to fleabay next week
cheers and Happy Holidays to all.
p.s. Mr. Spoo sold me a pair of killer EG's at a great price. Highly recommended!
