Casa Loma in Toronto.
Wow, it's beautiful! I was just in Toronto for work before the pandemic struck but didn't even know it was there.

I was interested in it, as I'm looking for a castle to live in, but that seems to small for my needs. I'm after something about 300,000 square feet, with a moat and alligators; you know, what everyone wants. :p

Crosspost from the Tricker's thread

Let me introduce the Tricker's Leo African Explorer Shooting boot in Kudu reverse suede in ridge colour.

These boots arrived yesterday and I have to say that I am very very happy. It was an impulssive purchase and had some regrets, but once I saw them all the bad feelings just vanished.

The boots are very comfortable due to the crepe sole, I haven't owned a pair of GYW goots in crepe but they feel great, the suede is thick and gentle. Is impressive how Trickers work flawlessly this thick leathers and welts.

Some advice from fellow members (can I say shoefreaks?), how do I keep the crepe sole clean?

Embrace the dirtiness of the crepe sole! You will be unable to keep it clean unfortunately

Only prayer...of course what I mean is, no hope of that happening.

As the guys at Church's know, crepe soles are impossible to keep clean, that is why they paint it on the sides as with my Ryder Maracca suede dessert boots. That could be an alternative solution if they get too dirty...
