I have been asking Leffot for 2+ years to do a 986 with antique. A few months ago they were going to offer it and then that Dover sold so quickly they allocated their shell allotment to more of them. I was bummed

I suppose I should have posted my LHS from today. I also seem to have scraped the inside heel liner somehow, maybe with a shoehorn or something, I am really not sure. Do you guys think it could cause issues with the lining down the road, is it something I should address or not really worry too much about? Just looking for any opinions.
Damn they should really do them, I think they look fantastic.
Thanks Uncle. I guess I'll use this pair of swims for wet or light rainy days. I have something else for torrential down-pours and snow-days.
Thanks Ironclad for the kind words. The overshoes aren't really supposed to be a fashion statement, just something to get me to work where I can easily remove them.
Okay, maybe it is just me, but I really do not get this whole swims thing. Do you take it off when you get indoors or something? I think you poor Ravellos look sad in that overshoe. I would feel bad for them if they had to be covered up the whole day... I personally just wear Bostonians on the 3 days of heavy rain we get per year... On light rain days, I go with my #8 Perf Tip, my dedicated victims.
We have wet conditions (not necessarily heavy down-pours) pretty regularly. I only wear the overshoes to get me to work and back when needed as MoneyWellSpent explained earlier. I wouldn't wear it all day. BTW, your whiskey PTBs look outstanding. I love the shade; better than the sw bals I own. Although, it may just be your exceptional photography!
Thanks DV. Your my inspiration, my friend!
Severe thunder storms and heavy down-pours forecasted tonight. Took out my "Swims Monster Boot Overshoes" for the first time. They were a Christmas gift; gortex/waterproof and great for heavy rain and snow days. Kind of warm though, for summer-use. Natural Chromexcel LWBs for a family night out for fireworks...
I popped @ClassyCanuck's avatar into Google's image search a few months ago.
Was not disappointed by the diversion.
I think my wife found them on ebay back in December. She said she got them for $65; pretty good price. I think Allen Edmonds still has them on line but for retail ($150). I haven't seen them anywhere else.
With a grail boot coming this fall, I'll put the monsters to good use!
