    Thanks Gianni

    This is my boot that I commissioned more than a year ago. I am surprised the picture made it here again but I do have to admit the color combination turns out really great.

    Congrats to you on those - they are stunning. I would love to see some current pics of how they are wearing after more than a year.

    Agree completely. I put aside the tall boots for summer but rock the heck out of them for the other three seasons.

    Well my boots came today, wow the fit is amazing. Is there a trick for the shoe trees? Having a very hard time taking them out and putting in.

    Beautiful pictures ... not only confirms all their beauty ... and why not have them still used? I would put them with any color dress or pants! I can not wait to see the photos side! Thanks again for showing these rare beauties.

    Interesting. If I have one small disappointment with my pair it's that the trees aren't very tight. Not sloppy loose, but not as snug fitting as my Anthony Cleverley lasted trees. I wonder if my G-with fitting has anything to do with it?

    I notice mine are tight, but naturally have loosened up over time. I like that they are tight because I know they are doing something. My Corthay lasted trees were useless.
