    Yeah, those are stunning boots. I would kill for a pair in dark oak, but even a brown shoe lover such as myself can see the appeal of those chelseas in black.

    Before SF, I never had any ankle boots. Now, I have three going on four. Should've left a blank space for the next pair (JL Brooklands in chestnut museum calf, 8000 last). Here are RM Williams Yearling Craftsman in chestnut, Alden chukka in dark brown suede, and Schubert in dark brown:

    Confession: Before I joined, I could never see myself wearing boots, and I thought you guys were idiots for calling it "shoe porn". Now, this thread makes my pulse race, and gives me a stiffy. It might even be having an effect on my relationship... my gf scoffs at me when I start talking about boots I like, and want. I keep saying to myself I won't need her anymore when I finally have all the boots I want. I'm planning to buy some RMW's next month as a grad gift to myself, but I fear things might start snowballing from there into happy stylish feet, and empty pockets. Is this healthy? Is there a support group for boot-porn addicts, and wanna-be boot-owners?

    The only treatment is to buy a pair of RMWs. It may not cure you, but there will be one pair less to lust after!

    Yes...dark brown museum. I liked the red museum, but thought this color would be more versatile.

    Here's a pair of EG Newmarkets I just got. It's 9/9.5C on the 808 last in black calf.

    Do you all mean the 606 last on these Newmarket boots?[​IMG] All I could find is a 606 which is the slightly square last. I REALLY like this one and would order a pair if there was such a thing as a 606 last.[​IMG]

    The right choice Harry. I think I'm going to have to breakdown and buy these beasts.[​IMG]

    This boot is just wonderful. My grandfather was Scottish - I'd love to get something like this with is clan's plaid as the fabric.

    One day... maybe very soon, I'm going to try investing in a pair of Edward Green Greshams. How would I go about acquiring a pair? And how expensive are they? I'm expecting a grand or so, if I wrong... how much farther is the so? But yah...

    I agree, I have more boots than dress shoes.
