Get ready for the bal boot hate brigade.

I like 'em, though.

Did you go and order an other pair of Shannons? I believe i just saw a post with some in a slightly different hue ... They are both
I understand you like the 888, I assume there is quite a difference in width to a Trickers
Wear them in good health
Speed

Both of them are spectacular.


They affirm my love for 82 and 888.

Are you referring to the shoes? They are bauxite which has an orange / red hue.

It is! Actually it's a Shannon II to be precise.

No 888's here. I decided to give the 606 a go following a successful fitting back in November. They do look like the 888 though don't they.

Thats cool, know of other people that have several versions of the same shoe
So the next ones? Blind, speedlace or buttons? I imagine a olive would be nice to ... Speed edit: 606 ... thats funny, didnt see that. But I prefer the 606 to the 888 to. (just 1pair of each)

Yes, they do look like 888 from the angle of the pictures.

Ahh, the next pair will be a Shannon I but with a twist. Firstly, all credit must go to Eustace Tilley for his magnificent tweed Shannons. I have stolen his idea and commissioned a dark oak & mink suede combo but with an edwardian calf facing.

Absolutely. I didn't think you would have mistaken them for a moment had you seen them in the flesh.

The normal shoes look nice.

Well, I guess it may be different for others but I like the idea of a contrast leg and the suede is comfortable around the ankle.

What I really like is that the boot is a chameleon... under the drape of one's trouser leg, the boot appears to be little more than a shoe. It's colour and antiquing set it apart from the black oxford masses, but when I sit down, BANG! Those suede tops are killer


The vast majority of my shoes are of a conservative nature. It's nice to add a little flare from time to time.
