    Very nice! :) If I recall correctly, those boots are based on the Imperial Japanese Army boots from the war. The double welted sole is a nice detail!!

    The soles are great, and I like the punched captoe to make them look less like work boots. The texture of the leather is unusual, what is it?

    I think I like them more knowing that.

    Now go find that Quadrofiglio customer and ask how his Dainite is holding up. :)

    Any idea how they hid the stitching? I've never seen hidden channels on Danite before. Very nice.

    The Dainite piece is glued on without stitches.

    100% agree!

    Marquess`s (less talked about) Chisel last is actually quite a stunner too. I`ll try to get some pic of a sample when I get to meet him next time.
