i've got a pair that's very similar. and if they are like mine, they're actually pigskin, and not cow leather. i would highly recommend them. a few years ago, actors like brad pitt, jake gyllenhaal, etc. were searching (or made their assistants search) the ends of the earth to get their feet into them.

Yeah, I saw these on Yoox. Pretty neat, but, you know, pretty fucking expensive too.

I don't own any boots so I don't know what's a good brand/price. Any other suggestions?

I've always wondered about those boots w/the harness strap under the sole. Seems impractical; I can envision it tearing while climbing the Himalayas or kicking teeth, or even something more pedestrian like walking over logs. I never liked it.

Yeah, I've always wondered that myself. Does it have any function whatsoever?

Since you guys all said it was expensive, any suggestions for alternatives? I want pretty good quality, so I don't want to something from Shoes4Less or something.
