Aren't they? I'm getting the tan version (I never wear black boots, for some reason. Browns and greys, for the most part.) They are nice though. Richard at Shoehealer will be getting some in, and I Julian at AFinePairofShoes: http://www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk/c...ion/products/alfred-sargent-exclusive-lombard will be getting them as well. Cheers, Fok.
