    I'd like them better if they were bal boots.

    JL Saint Crepin 2009 and 2010 are still two of the best and most unique designs. 2012, not so much.

    I'm pretty certain that my elderly grandmother owns a pair of the shearling lined boots.

    The JLP factory shop has a special offer on St Crepins from several years (£550-£600 with trees). I was surprised that in many years the shoes are far from being good looking (to my taste at least). And there is nothing that compares to a Jermyn II/III or Chapel

    uninspired, at best.

    The 2009 was the only JL SC that I thought was a knockout and is probably my favorite JL that I wear. As soon as I saw that one I put in an order. Most of the others in the past 5-7 years have been meh with the exception of the 2010.

    Don't worry. It's a pair of beautiful boots. Just not as fashion forward as the pre 2008 JL St Crepins and not as inspiring as 2009/2010 St Crepin.
