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.

A good illustration of why I can't reconcile to the LHS though it seems comfortable. It just doesn't seem to keep the line  when you wear them with the top line popping out and forming a curve.

Mine do that when I am not standing on them. But when I have tension on them, they straighten out.

good shine on your ptb. the swims would not properly protect your shoes in last nights and tonight thunderstorms. you need tingley overshoes

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.

RTP, that has got to be one of the best shoes/socks/pants combos I've seen on this forum in a while. Outstanding.

 

As for the overshoes...

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.

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! :D

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.

@RTP, I have been trying to find the Swims Monters. Nice find. They seem great for boot protection during inclement days

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!

Why wear overshoes with a boot? It seems like fetishistic overkill to me.

Just got this cigar 2142 from TSM list.They look like a dark whiskey or light ravello. Any idea on who made them?

 

post #86159 of 87516

WHAT A SCORE!

Jealous for sure.

What was the defect? off center medallion on the right (pictured left) shoe?
