    Requested change to side panels, colour (burgundy) and eyelets (stouter type). The design change is down to AS. I was after something similar to the "Kelso" boot, but AS came up with this. A much better design. There's a touch of Edward Green there (e.g. Galway boot), I think.

    +1. I'd love to know where you got them, and if they can be obtained in other colours, too!

    I never posted these on here because anything black doesn't get much love on SF, but I figured WTF? Could be a nice followup to Wes's beautiful Grensons.

    These are my MTO Rider Balmoral Boots I got from Ron at his trunk show at Leffot last fall hence Steven's beautiful photos. They are black shell cordovan:

    Afaik, the Grensons are either a special one-off or a sample that never made it to production, sorry guys. @pB: great boots!

    ^^Both black pairs are nice... I'd like a pair in a gunmetal tone at some point.
