    Those are certainly special Chelsea boots, using not just one or two pieces of leather, but four piece Frankenstitched together.

    Those could certainly grow on me. Although the lacing is sort of funky, the overall shoe is very nice, and brown certainly works real well.

    I really dig them. Different enough to be unique but not so much that I couldn't wear them

    I've had them in hand and tried then on. Very appealing choice for someone who has the basics well covered. And the colour is spectacular in person. Deep forest green and earthy brown shades mixing and shifting.

    See I just saved you from making a horrible mistake and saved you some cash in the process.



    Unlike @tifosi they should call me the Anti-Enabler, or is that the Anti Christ. LOL

    D*** Roger you must have been taking classes lately from The Master Enabler (@tifosi ). That sounds so sweet you've practically convinced me to buy a pair. LOL

    Sure does.


    Besides with his bad karma in getting EG MTOs in timely fashion, being known as The Anti Tifosi might not be such a bad thing after all. LOL
