Great sock choice with those shoes and jeans - that's how it's done!

I've never gone for monkstraps, but these are killer.
Thanks man! Yeah they looked good in pictures but even better in person if that’s possible

@saintcrispins Mod515 U-Cap Oxford Boots with medallion A, 609 dark brown shell and a mid brown, vintage shrunken calfskin shaft. Riva last with adjustments made to the instep fitting.
.
GE10mm dark brown outsole, pegged waist and toe plates.
.
Some may find it a bit of a strong contrast, but it’s exactly what I had envisioned. Because calfskin darkens with age and wear, and darker shell lightens with age and wear, the plan is they continue to grow closer and closer together.
.
Fit, honestly the instep adjustment is perfect to accommodate my foot and communicating with Phillip via email to hash out the exact need, extent and location of the adjustment couldn’t have turned out better.

I would be in the camp that finds them a bit too contrasted. Saying that, I always love it when a plan comes together so the fact your vision was realized is... 👍🏻 👍🏻.

I would add that the most encouraging thing for yourself and others is the fit result. Amazing you were able to lock in a great fit. I'm in the camp of prioritizing fit over aesthetic. Of course, no one wants a ugly shoe, but if it doesn't fit you must re-equip.

Yeah I absolutely love these and think they will age extremely well with time. Great makeup! I love the medallion choice too.
