    Yeah, only a couple wears according to the seller. Fffff I like the storm parka so much. But duffle is more versatile.

    I already have a pair of blue suede low top sneakers. Can get thiese at an unbeatable price though. I guess I could rock with black pants and a grey tee? They could even work with shorts I guess with them half zipped and not laced up fully. I've just copped so much shit recently it's hard to justify, but I know I'd regret not getting them at this price... Opinions?

    Yes, unless they're size US 11, in which case you should tell me where to get them.

    Ah sadly they're sold out of the 11s or I would've thrown you the link! Did cop them in 10 and am actually pretty excited for them to arrive.

    For any Canadians, gravity pope is listing sale items at great prices that don't show up in their sale section, only discoverable by poring over categories. Those W+Hs shoes for 150, W+H Chinos for 80, BoO polo for 40 (all CAD)... Fantastic sale season.

    Some good prices. Was going to check out 3 items but then found that international shipping is $85. That's bullshit

    Wondering how awkwardly they'd sit under pant legs since the shaft appears so high.

    Honestly they're fine unless the pants are really tight, the shaft is soft enough that it folds nicely. I'm selling mine but prob not your size (40).

    Cool, the yoox pics make them look pretty soft but obvsiously it's yoox so who know. And yeah I'm a size 44, maybe 45. Are they about mid-calf in terms of height?

    Not awkwardly. I wear them with slim jeans (7.5" and up). Obviously not gonna work with something really tight around the calves. They're my favorite boots, although the pair I have in this color is a touch too small, which is...crushing. Now I'm contemplating a new pair from yoox. Ugh.

    @Synthese I think your feet are the same as mine. 12 brannock/12 Nike/44 CP? Would you say stay 44 in these or go up to 45?

    45. If you buy them you save me the bitter worry of wondering if I should.

    Either that or you know where to find them if either of us change our mind :)
    Thanks

    I can't look at mmm boots without wondering whether the glued sole peels away over time. Has this happened to any of you?

    I lost a (glued and tacked) heel on both my pairs. The leather sole is blake-stitched on these (I am 95% sure), so I am not sure how much risk there is of total and complete destruction. I just took both pairs in to my cobbler for repairs and resoling, and the uppers are doing just fine. I am...not easy on my footwear, either.
