    Is there a difference between the EG "midnight blue' and the G&G 'midnight blue'?

    From what I see the EG looks like its more greyish, and the G&G is more saturated/brighter?

    Wearing my EG Shannons for the first time today. I'm really happy with these and look forward to wearing them a lot.

    what are you thinking ryden? i think EB's boots are their strongest offerings but i may be biased. someone said it in a way i couldnt have: boots are like shoes, only better

    On the 2102B last, a bit hard to fit because it has a high instep.

    Button boots eh? I asked a friend since I'm out of touch with the mainstream but he found then to be terribly hideous. I thought they looked cool but I think people's normal reactions would be like wtf are you wearing.

    Oh and I always thought boots always looked better on their own but once worn, shoes are better since you can see the whole shoe but only a portion of the boot. The lines seem like they were interrupted and the picture is incomplete. Just my 2 cents. Still love and buy a lot of boots.

    you must be a real wham, bam, thank you mam. I always prefer the part left to the imagination and thus the hidden wonders only a good boot can provide...

    i agree with you. but im sitting now and people can see my boots and dat sechy boot ankle. plus i dont have to worry about matching shoe/sock/pant. its one less thing for a obsessive compulsive person to worry about

    I love boots. When living in a cold climate they are a necessity, and you can never have too many pairs :)
