Yesterday I recieved my first pair of Löf & Tung Bellot in dark brown museum calf. The unpacking was great and the shoes are wonderfully executed, the leather in not very mottled which I prefer in museum calf.

Sizing is on spot 10.5UK (thanks to Erik's advise), the model is great, the austerity brogue has become my favourite formal shoe. I was afraid that the shoe's mouth would be a tad small (not unusual in spanish shoes) but is ok, and no issues in the proportions.

When I opened the box I thought "bahhhh white shoe bags"; Vass, Barker and AE use this color which is a no sense for me, since that bags are made to contain shoes not jewels. But the I realize that the bag have a dark brown linning, a nice detail.

This was a trial purchase, I will return*.

*Edit : To avoid any misunderstanding I should have said: " I wil return to Skoaktiebolaget for more shoes".

My plan was to just buy groceries, but I saw the F&S Keble in the shoe rack and realised I rarely wear them because I haven't broken in the heel yet. I'd not wear denim with them if I actually planned an outfit, even if it kind of works.

Running to supermarket for 10-15 min? Perfect. I'm going to start wearing them a lot more since they're absolutely amazing - by far the highest end shoe I own; EB is great, but F&S Keble was on a different level. Real sad it's no longer in production.

Howdy folks,

A little while back I received a "last day of the sale" email from the good people and Skoaktiebolaget and decided to grab a pair of Lof & Tung Champlain boots. I've always been intrigued by the style - and the fact that I had no similar boots in my collection. I was a bit cautious due to the shearling lining and the fact that I have naturally warm feet - would these boots be too warm?

That remains to be seen, but having received the shipment, I'm very glad I made the purchase. At full price, this pair - like all L&T offerings - represent very solid value for money. At the sale price, frankly, I feel a bit guilty. Definitely something to look forward to for the fall and winter seasons (though I'm in no rush!).

By the way - what are people using for photo hosting since Fototime crashed and burned?

Which pair did you pick up? The suede combo or the country grain?

I picked up a pair of the York boot a few months ago and even tho i've yet to wear them outside i'm just in love with them!

I'm not surprised - we have very similar taste in footwear. I got the calf upper, suede shaft combo.

I'm surprised Imgur isn't widely adopted, it's by far the best photo-sharing site I've used.

Just make sure to make it any uploads private to avoid any fatuous comments, you'll still be able to share as long as you provide the link for us.

Received these last week. I was a bit worried these were going to clash with my dark brown scotch conistons, but upon arrival I realized they’re a completely different boot. As always, great service from the guys at Skoaktiebolaget; Ludwig’s unexpected email was greatly appreciated and a nice gesture. In retrospect, I regret not mentioning to add a few pair of Sozzi socks, since I had not worn my trial pair until afterwards.

An attempt in capturing the natural beauty of Tärnsjö. I’d be interested to see what other leathers the tannery offers.

What color / variety of Tarnsjo leather is this? Looks beautiful, would like to see how it ages!
