    OMG you are quite the shoe artist.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The ostrich jodhpurs are spectacular. I love the way ostrich leather just molds to your foot.
    I'm glad I stumbled on to this site. It's a rainy day maybe I'll pull out my boots for a photo session.

    Always tricky with used shoes. In addition to the creases, I'd be concerned about how long they have been there and the leather's conditioning. If the price is right, it might be worth a shot. If you get them at a decent price and they don't work, you might be able to re-sell with a minimal loss? Good luck!

    I have more EGs than JLs, by a fairly considerable margin. JLs recent price hike is unfortunate. Add to that any "By Request" fees that are assessed if a By Request order is made. NOTE: However, if a guy has a decent relationship with a JL retailer, he can many times make By Request orders with no upcharge (even during non By Request events). JL's boot selection is nearly awful.

    Having said all of that, for dress shoes (main line and Prestige), JL's 7000 last is the class of the field. :nodding:

    Outrageous. That's EG top drawer pricing minus the almost limitless design flexibility.

    They priced me out at that price.

    The most expensive JL prestige I remembered was 2009 limited. But that was a tough pattern to cut.
