    Tip of the hat to sf_esq. Now let's hope that the boot delivers on its promise.

    Thank you. Cheers. I look forward to seeing the photos upon arrival!

    The tribe has spoken - no medallion it is.

    How did these pass by so quickly without more information. The photo shows NEW boots. These can't be NOS, can they?

    Does AE do special orders of bal boots?

    While not as incredible as many of these examples here, they must be among the most reasonably priced, yes?

    What was the model name of this boot, and, if anyone knows, which last is it on?

    Thanks.

    I'm interested in these too...they'd be great for guiltless sh*t kicking and ignorant behavior while wearing denim jeans.

    This is the Brantley model on the #4 last if I remember correctly. I got a pair probabaly 15 years ago in a color AE called bourbon (more like mid tan or C&J Tan). At that time I think you could get the boot in black as well. I would guess yours are NOS, unless they were special ordered at some point. The color does not look like my bourbon ones, so I am not sure what you have in the AE color world.

    The more I see those the more I regret not buying them when I had the chance.

    Either. Any recommendation or pictures of ones done either way?
    I don't like it.
    Could be bad. I just prefer minimal things. I'd like a balmoral boot for the ankle protection while on a motorcycle, but maybe chukkas are good enough and they're plain.

    Right. They are definitely NOS.
