A little maintenance before the boots go for a well deserved summer break. Time for a family portrait!

I’m not sure from where this idea that boots need a “summer break” come from. I live in FL and wear my boots all the time. I understand that if you walk a hundred blocks to go to work in the middle of the summer it’s not ideal, but that’s not everyone case

Maybe this is the wrong thread to say this in, but...

<whispers> there are other things you can wear on your feet than boots, some of which might be more suitable for hot weather </whispers>

Now, I think maybe no-one heard me and I might just get out of here alive...

Oh no...now my anxiety levels have gone sky high. I bought a very nice pair of boots in the Spring and want to wear them...but it is summer now. I do have lots of shoes that I can wear in the summer but I am eager to get these boots out and about. I have taken some Diazepam and laying in a darkened room for an hour or two. :eek:

I never thought boots needed a summer break any more than my sandals need a winter break. One just seems to fit my attire better than the other depending on the season.

Cross-post with The Desert Boot and Chukka thread:

Here's the newest baby to the family: Edward Green Cherwell in mink suede!

Front, staircased.jpeg

I bought these pre-owned from Skoaktiebolaget's website (from Patrick Löf's personal collection) without any prior knowledge on how EG's lasts fit me. The price and condition of the shoes were too good to pass on, so I took the gamble (with a bit of help from @jischwar ). And it paid off; they fit incredibly well!

The make up is really nice: thin but sturdy rubber sole; long, sleek yet un-offensive last that feels great on my foot; soft, fine, supple yet substantial suede in a perfect dark brown; glove interior-like lining leather throughout with a thicker, textured leather (kind of like peccary?) at key stress points; and incredibly fine stitching all throughout. I'm extremely happy with them!

Could there be a Galway in my future? :smarmy:
