    These are some bal boots that I had Ron Rider make up for me. I think they came out amazing:

    I believe that Speedster posted these before, but I have some further info. According to the monthly e-newsletter that I get from JM Weston these were designed by Frank Gehry and are now available via special order (also they are available in Paris boutiques for €1,400). Any takers?

    They're only sold in one location AFAIK. Probably in the 16th.

    I don't think I'd ever get tired of looking at Shannons.

    Seller says they're limited edition?

    If I remember correctly, this is one of four or five different Dimitri Gomez designs, made to celebrate Crockett & Jones' 125th anniversary in 2004.

    Not sure about that. But they were produced for sale as limited editions in C&J's Paris shop to celebrate that anniversary. Three different models, including the boot as well as a U-throat oxford with lizard and some other shoe I forget. They came with special trees.

    Dimitri is pretty conservative in his designs.

    My guess is that this is the "Twilight" colour from their new collection.
    Can't say I like it.
