    Hello,

    I am normally a shoe guy, but I was thinking of getting a pair of black boots to go with jeans.

    What do you think of these and I am assuming the jeans would go over the boot.

    Does the 895 mean these are Edward Greens ?

    If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't get them. Those are pretty out-there. And they appear to have the triple soles that some of the other Polo boots have that basically don't bend.

    Expect a painful breaking in period. But they are basically Polo's interpretation of a tanker boot.

    Those are hideous and they aren't Greens.

    This looks a lot cooler. The Polo boot is really half-assed.

    Why not look at some Justin or other make Ropers...low heel, nice round toe, more colors than imaginable to choose from.

    rssmsvc,

    What do you think about this Polo boot from Grapevinehill?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-POLO-RALPH-L...QQcmdZViewItem

    I have a pair of them in a different size and am very happy with them. They work well with jeans and certain trousers.

    Regards,

    LBW


    I also own a pair. Nice once broken in.

    I prefer the OP's boots to the lace-up/buckle mongrel. I would be a little concerned about the triple sole, but otherwise the OP's boots probably aren't a bad combo with some boot-cut, low-rise, distressed jeans--if that's the sort of thing you wear. If that's not the look one is after, well then, not so much.
