Nice pics mate - good to see. Them strides look like POW to me.
I know the boots ye mean - seen a pair before with steel caps and white trim round the top. Got a similar pair mesell but without the steel - quite low on the ankle.

no white strip on the cherry reds, you are bang on them dms with that strip were quite low i remember polishing em with ox blood and the only thin that changed color was that strip i seem to remember the guy in that pic with the shades, had a proper pair of cherry reds they at the time looked like they had a much better shape to the toe to me they looked squarer , and he must have polished with black cherry blossom cos they were a red / black color
