    They hold up just fine. Over time the paint eventually begins to fall off.

    I was hoping the paint is dyed on the leather. Hopefully the paint doesn't fall off too quickly or else my bedroom walls are going to see some new colors.

    I have owned several pairs. The paint doesn't come off easily. It will take some years.

    Are MMM velcro three strap high tops worth getting if you don't tuck pants into them. I don't look good with boot tucks but I dig the shoes.

    The black cropped jodhpurs i got for around 40% off via seller on eBay, they still have them in various sizes, also have the tall rangers.
    The suede ones i jumped on them at full price as soon as they were available since they were sold out in the start of the year i was waiting a long time.
    The his i jumped on at full price as well but that was just because i was impatient, its my favourite one, no color just all black.
    The studded ones i prefer the non studs but i found these for half price used in good condition so i just jumped on them even though i prefer the non studded ones, they're not that bad though!

    I'm terrible at rolling jeans, can't even pinroll properly, take note that the leg opening for my jeans are very small thats why it is able to sit above the shoe so that it shows the top strap, if you wear large opening then it will cover that and look like a low with two straps, would still look cool though, try by covering the top of the shoe on the picture with your finger. or you could just shove a bit of your pant in and have the tongue out like kanye and Orlando herehttps://www.google.com.au/search?q=...&sa=X&ei=qwL1VKzxDYuP8QX4x4AY&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ

    they are pretty expensive new now since they no longer made i think? i saw it for like 700$ new on one of the UK stores, but they pop up every now and then on grailed for like $500, the new season is the shiny straps and the hair wool fabric thing which doesn't look as good imo. I got mine used off ebay for quarter of the price, the suede is a bit ruined as you can see, but I guess it gives it the kinda weathered look??

    Thank you! The only thing i'm missing is the RAF velcros, I had the his at one point but after handful of wears decided to sell them since they kept wearing out my heels and it hurt a lot, so I want to buy some lows but trying to find still! The other thing I want this year is the zipped SLP rangers
