Came home to Color 8 Captoe boots on the Plaza from J. Gilbert. My 2nd pair in 3 months with the lucky Horween stamp. I heard if you get 3 in six months you get a free pair of Ravello LWBs.

I would try Alden SF, The Shoe Mart, or Frans Boone... SF doesnt seem to want to confirm anything for rare colors right now though... DC focuses on the Ravello for their rare LWB make ups right now...

yeah, Kathy mentioned that she doesn't really dabble in cigar (though she did mention the SF "thor" boot today but had no update.

 

I think kathy said she had an 11.5C ravello chukka instock, and *maybe* a cigar captoe boot but I cant recall the size. will try and ascertain on thursday. my wallet hopes its not my size

 

I didnt think to ask the gentleman at the madison store last week what else might be in the pipeline.

 

fransboone has 2-3 pair that I like but the crepe sole kills it

Gotcha, yeah I am not a fan of the Crepe either. Frans did have a few left on double oaks a few months ago...

That last Cigar captoe boot they got in was super dark, almost black. I tried to squeeze my foot into an 8 because I wanted the boot so bad and I also have a bit of room in an 8.5D Grant, but it was a no go.

I would go or the Frans Boone personally. I am not a huge crepe sole fan either but his makeups are great, service is excellent and once you wear through the sole you can send them to B Nelson and get a different sole

Only a few sizes left but this is a sharp looking 6 eyelet chukka

Thanks Tifosi!

Yes, its on the Plaza. But not all eyelets...4 speed hooks.

I've been lusting after this boot for 3 years! Only comes around about once a year, and seems to totally sell out before it even hits the website.

trust me, the thought has crossed my mind (enough that I check exchange rates weekly lol)

 

the cigar indys have my attention, but at the minimal frequency that I wear through the rotation, it would take forever to need a resole. 

 

sadly, I'm coming to the conclusion that it's time to thin the herd..

According to their site, Frans still has the Cigar LWBs in 10.5d in stock...
