    Hey Razl... https://riderboot.com/shop/gilbert-cognac/. Could be a touch big on ya, but you're welcome if you haven't already pulled the trigger.

    Frankly, I'm surprised no one posted the drops on Rider's sale page for the past few days. I only went slight nuts and bought some of the FS and SS things that I've been eyeballing for a while.

    Even though my size was out of stock for months, I decided to swing by the sale page of Rider’s site and found the horse front Fritz Chelsea to be back in stock in my size. I’ve been eyeing these for a while and am excited to give them a run. Pumped!

    As an aside, I got this Chukka in a rough-out suede a few years back and it's been one of the most versatile and "nice shoes!" commented on casual pairs that I own. While these are in a rough sort of calf the color scheme is the same as my suedes so should work for the same situations. I see they're currently on final sale at $199 which is awesome.

    Trust me, on paper these do not look like they'd be for me - I'm too CBD uptight, these look like cool-guy shoes - but I can't believe how much and how varied use I've gotten out of them. Total win.

    What color did you get? I got tan but wished I'd known of the sale early enough to get the natural color. I've got enough wear on my waxy snuff Kudus now to really appreciate how comfortable these boots can be. Really wish I could get a a light colored pair (gaucho Kudu or natural horse front)

    I went for the natural, which I am really hoping work out because I don’t have anything in that shade currently. How did you size yours? I followed the guidelines on the site and went TTS.

    I too went TTS. Worked out great though I was hesitant/unsure on the 1st couple of wears. Wore them 5+ miles a day over an extended weekend in Boston a few weeks ago with no issues. Best fit is with light to medium weight boot socks.

    Ten year old shell chukkas from Ron are possibly my most frequently worn shoes. I recommend his site to people all the time.

    Fun day on Saturday in Ron’s shop in Richmond, checking out his preparations for building custom belts.

    Natural Fritz just landed. Very impressed and a little surprised that the fit seems so good with and without the insoles. The color also looks to cross a lot of seasons for how I plan to wear these. Would buy again.

    That's a great project. I am sure he is going to produce fantastic belts

    First pavement pounding for the Fritz. Such a good color in natural sunlight
