  • Hi, Im struggling between Gaziano & Girling Burnham alligator boots which cost almost 6000 pounds whereas Carmina alligator boots cost only half. I can afford GG if I want to (3 months salary ) or Carmina is good enough . Please enlighten me. Thank you .

    carmina is good enough for sure
    Thank you very much for your very professional insight .However,still Gaziano is very tempting,it feels more exclusive.Could you please kindly answer 3 more questions for me?
    1. If I put 2 pairs ( GG and Carmina) alligator boots side by side would you tell the different?
    2. Are Gaziano alligator boots worth the money? ( 6000pounds)
    3. which pair would you buy if you were to buy a pair of alligator boots?

    sending me a DM would be best for future questions instead of questions on my profile please. As per the answers:

    1. I could yes. Could the average person? No. they could not
    2. Value is subjective. I don't think paying for alligator is worth the money. But maybe you do?
    3. If money was no option, then I would easily go for the G&G as they are a better make
    I am thinking of buying Chelsea boots, I am thinking Gaziano & Girling Burnham (made to order), Edward Green Newmarket or Tom Ford cap toe boots . Any suggestions? Thank you
