Since the EG sale included only 3 pairs of shoes in my size, I had to settle for a pair of chocolate brown suede John Lobb boots from ebay:





I'm not sure I can wait until Fall to try them out. Can I wear them with any summer-weight trousers? Jeans?

I think they'd look good with jeans, even in the summer

Sorry, but they're UK 11, approximately US 12. As much as it will pain me, I guess I'll just have to keep them.
