    Okay, I saw them Skyfall. I think they are very nice looking. However, $750 is steep. I have never had a pair of wingtip boots and I have a few questions:

    1. How long does it take them to break in - as far as width, how do they run, normal or narrow?

    2. Can you actually wear them outdoors in a harsh environment ?

    3. Are they actually worth the cash?

    4. Any reasonable alternatives?

    How would you answer the question "how long is a piece of string?".

    I apologize. Do they tend to run in a normal width?

    I have been looking at the Allen Edmonds Long Branch as an alternative.
