I went with this in amaretto shell, commando soles (leather/rubber) with no storm welt.

I am thinking maybe I should have added a medallion.

Looks like meowmix1891 is playing dead. I’d say the first one of you to cross the finish line wins.
Traded some PMs with Carmina yesterday. If I get in great, if not I'll just have to re-open discussion on that Kudu they have.

It is full-on melty, salt, slush, puddle messiness up here. I won't be in mine for a while, yet, but you've got me craving them!
Wait, what? I thought you were in the “wear my shell in bad weather” camp. :satisfied:

If so, suede is the even more appropriate for bad weather. Edit: tolerant of bad weather

I nearly went with the taller boot myself. I found a photo deep in this thread somewhere of a Skoak build from 2017 that was the mid height boot but included the heel counters like the tall boot. Didn't seem to be an option since they don't have the pattern available apparently. I suspect you can adjust your order if you like. There are a couple of minor details I am still debating myself (eyelets, for instance, which I changed from antiqued to shiny at the last moment).

I got over the fear of rain on suede, but not the fear of dirty, salty puddles. I still have self-work and growth to do as a human and sartorialist! ;)

Can you share a photo of the Skoak build and the model #?

I think some deadline must be agreed/enforced. Otherwise we can’t possibly move on.

Let say, and to be fair, what about something like Tue 19, 23:59 GMT+0. What do you think @Carmina ?
