    As I say, not trying to evangelize anyone. In the SWD side, the CM casual thread is seen as "the horror", for example, would be pointless to go there and try to prove them wrong. :)

    Definitely loads of good information here guys, thanks! I think Chelsea boots will be good, the problem is that they either:

    1. Look too formal and elegant
    2. Look too bulky

    I have looked a lot for a nice pair that has a combination of the two but have not found one yet.

    I don't get the too formal and elegant part but JM Weston makes the best Chelsea boot and it's what they are known for, I've worn mine with jeans and suits. RM Williams is good if you don't want to spend that much.

    I haven't looked at all of them in the baller thread because I stopped looking at a certain point, but from the examples I've seen I certainly couldn't agree more.

    I just went to the baller thread as I had no idea what baller boots are, still not sure that I know. Basically crumpled up boots?
    I respect everyone's right to wear what looks good to them but I just do not get this "style"

    And get off my lawn!

    Those "baller" boot toes remind me of oversize clown shoes. With a bit of toning or filing down they'd serve well with denim and such, but I guess this isn't the maker's intent.

    Picked these up from @dddrees and they're fantastic! Edward Green Rosewood Country Calf Shearling Lined Galways.

    Congrats, I'm sure you'll enjoy them.


    Unfortunately for me, I just couldn't justify keeping them as they were too much like another pair I already had.

    No one combines aesthetics and functionality better.

    Hi

    Got these boots about two weeks ago and the're ready now for their first outing

    I've put cream on twice and wax once in order to make them supple and I've also worn them around the house to help
    "break them in"

    Got them in the sale at my local Debenhams, they had been on display and they'd lost the box and put them in the sale with 40% off at £141 ( would have been rude not to buy at the price) I'd have liked the box but with £94 off who cares!

    Good find, and nice shoes.

    I am sure someone will sell you a box for less than 30 quid if that really matters.
