Wear on good health, Sazon! Just one question: didn't we both get these a couple months ago? I'm impressed with your ability to restrain yourself; I wore them out to town the very first night!

Happy maiden voyage...

Nice pick up sazon. I would have jumped on these, but had just found jcrew's pebble grain cap toe boots a few weeks before these were offered. Enjoy wearing them.

Wore my black ones tonight .....

nephew,

The commando sole is subtle enough for a dressy boot, imo.

nephew,
i agree with your conclusion that they could and should be worn with a suit and tie.

well, enough talk i guess, here's a crappy shot I took this morning: 






welcome to the forum
where in good health
