I picked these up from Brian Friday morning and happily wore them all day.

A bit of a unconventional build for Underdogs, since most choose the slimmer profile last, these are on a Munson Last.

Black CXL Horsehide Roughout, with pieces chosen for character - bleed through and Horween printing.

Role Club custom 5" chukka (probably tall enough to be called "George boots") in natural horsehide CXL.

These photos are from a month or so ago when the boots were brand new; I've been wearing them a lot and they're already aging beautifully – I'll try to post some new pics soon.

Brian is next on my list to get boots from although I’d rather stop over in LA to have him measure me. Currently waiting on some boots from Brass Tokyo and White Kloud, but some underdogs or engineers are definitely next once those get delivered.

Saw these on the Instagram— they look great! I prefer this last to the sleeker standard one.

The color and texture are great!

I know I had to send in my foot and ankle measurements. Did you do the same process? What do you think about the fit?
I did not send in measurements. Fortunately I live near Brian's shop, so I went in for a fitting. 15 to 45 min drive (LA traffic).

The fit is great. No problem wearing them all day. Perfect with thinner socks, which I'm happy for considering warm weather wear. Normally, I must wear boot socks with all my Vibergs, since size 10 has to much toe hit and 10.5 is then a bit loose on the wider lasts.

You made the White Kloud trek?! If only he took mail in measurements.
What boots did you commission?

Yeah I went and visited Goto-sans workshop last fall in Japan. I won’t get my boots till next year though. I ordered his Blucher 87 boot identically to this. Highly recommend going and seeing him if possible.

Those Bluchers are striking. Fine pick!
A long time ago I was into Zen, but I'm too lazy. So, I have no other reason to travel to Japan, perhaps one day.
