    They're Allen Edmonds "Holiday" model from a few years ago. I picked them up on the last 2 for $250...and Tifosi is totally right. I'm dead serious [​IMG]

    Sorry for the late response but adding to this conversation.....I have a pair of Frye James Lug Wingtip Boots and the uppers are completely destroyed after 3 months of normal wear, it has a nice sole but.....You will be better served owning the AE Long Branch. Nice and bouncey!

    I think Tampa is pretty secure in his Holidays. I don't think he needs validation from us! Ha!

    Wow. Any reason why you think they didn't last longer? Did you care for them at all? Define "destroyed", if you don't mind.

    If you are that serious about the holidays then I suggest living somewhere besides Tampa :) isn't it like 70 degrees there?

    I did that for 26+ years. I'm cool shopping for Christmas and watching hockey (Go Bolts) in shorts.

    There are enough Snowbirds (Canadian and American) down here to make me think I'm up north this time of the year anyways.

    Plus it was in the 40's the other night - now that's cold!

    Whatever finish they used on the leather to give it a burnished look for this particular style peeled off not only on the toe but other parts of the upper as well. Not sure if the photos are clear.
