    Well said. And the boots were both well conceived by you and brilliantly executed by St. C. I'm not sure where the notion emerged that they should be judged in terms of appropriateness as a dress boot, but thanks for clarifying all the same. And enjoy the heck out of those fine boots!

    Reality is not nuanced or graded...only our perceptions of it are---ranging from awareness of the indifference of the universe to fantasy and self-deception to absolute self-serving nonsense.

    Are we still talking about St
    Crispins? I want a pair of super casual boots. Thought it might be fun to take suggestions. Last is key, AMD should be a true round toe.

    Good question.

    Are you looking for a tall boot - as opposed to, say a Chukka? When I attended the recent LeatherFoot trunk show, Phillip showed me a pic on his tablet of a recent tan coloured Galway-esque custom makeup that was several kinds of awesome. Wish I had requested that he e-mail me the pic then and there.

    Kind sir, I mean no offence but you sound like the character named "Rust" that Matthew Mcconaughey played on the HBO series "True Detective".

    ^^^ No, the one he showed me was an open-laced derby boot, with (I think) a grained shaft. The one above is a LeatherFoot makeup that is pretty sharp in its own right. We were working out the details on a burgundy / suede wingtip version of the one shown below. This basic design, save for colour choice:

    I like the Chukka for its four season versatility. Tall boots just look off to me in the summer months, but I sure do love to have them for the other three seasons of the year.

    Chukkas are also great for travel, second only to low top sneakers. no matter how good they look, I'm not sure it's worth it to endure a long plane ride in tall boots. Not to mention that passing through security becomes a real hassle.
