    As one who is working on light blue boots and blue/grey and navy/white spectattors, I so go grey! Seriously, whether you go grey or black, the boots you are considering look great and I hope you get and enjoy them - whether you are on the ramparts or the boardroom.

    Appreciate it. A couple of other options were brought to my attention as well and I'm getting overwhelmed but that's the inspiration I was looking for.

    I always thought they were called F U boots as a preemptive response to other people muttering "look at this fucking peacock".

    there are also women's boots known as fuck me boots, but that's for another reason entirely :D

    Wouldn't that make them "F P" boots.

    Truth is, my favorite Bonafe on the site right now is actually the burgundy grain jumper. They are right up my alley but, as a result, I currently own similar boots from Carmina & Heschung (debatable if they are as nice but...).

    Man, I hate it when I see a new shoe / boot that is a bit nicer, and that I like better, than a similar and perfectly good shoe / boot that I already have.

    I run into this issue specifically when it comes to mid or dark brown cap oxfords. Very ungrateful I am.

    I'm in the Bay Area, Namor. I have to get some work done and haven't tried them on yet. I will say that this batch of cognac shell is basically the perfect color.
