    Unfortunately they're at the cobbler (picking them up tomorrow), but I'll check the heel for sure. The stats per TSM were Black Shell on Grant however!

    The tan country calf cap toe boots have arrived from Yenni:

    (I'd do a full photo set on them but general lack of enthusiasm with my previous efforts has sort of discouraged me from bothering anymore.)

    Very nice and would love to seem more pics! I was drooling over the LWB and Medallion Tip Yenni carries in the same tan country grain.

    To be honest, I would keep three - color 8 Indy (IMO, a color 8 or cigar Indy is a must own), one of the Ironside/Vintage and one of the Ultimate/Innsbruck.

    I know people love Color 4, but for my money the rest of your collection is much more wearable. If you must keep the Color 4, go ahead. You already have substitutes for almost all of the other boots you have.

    Gents,

    Do you think adding the Frans Boone Paratrooper Snuff Captoe Suede Boot to this collection is too much?

    Snuff Collection
    Snuff Unlined Chukkas
    Snuff Plaza Wingtip Blucher (Yenni)

    Captoe Collection
    Black Cordovan Captoe Boot
    Color 8 Cordovan Punch Captoe Jumper Boot (Leather Soul - Unsure if I am keeping this)
    Leather Soul Conservation Boot in Chromexcel
    Color 8 Straight Tip Bal
    Black Punch Toe Bal
    Tan Calf Medallion Punch Bal (Moulded Shoe)

    On top of the Snuff Captoe Boot, I am also looking into adding additional LHS (natural CXL, cordovan), a Barrie Cordovan boot on Commando soles, a "rough" leather boot, and maybe a brown suede model.

    Is it going to render your Snuff chukka's to the never worn category? Only reason I ask is that I have a pair of Carmina Snuff/brown color cap toe boots and between my Alden X Brooks suede boot on crepe and my AE Gobi suede chukka..I do not seem to reach for the Carmina's....and from a pure build quality if you put all three next to each other your eye goes to the Carmina...yet still for some reason I just do not reach for it.
