    Nothing better than sitting down and crossing your legs to show the full boot. People are all like "ohhhh".

    Although I agree with Ironist that I love the look of the button, but have to be realistic that most folks will be like WTF! I usually don't care about that, but it is a bit over the top.

    I think because of Leffot's Button Boots were Blake Constructed Soles. I just specified it to be safe.

    In my defense, all boots are shoes but not all shoes are boots. Think about that :D.


    I worry for you my friend. I think you take the words "boot porn" too literally lol.

    Laughed so loud I almost woke up my wife. Would not have been easy to explain to her why I was laughing.

    I think it's time that you do your research using a more solid reference than an internet site that we all know can't always be trusted.



    What ever happened to the good old days?


    Have you ever heard of Funk and Wagnalls? LOL
