    What a classic. Great looking boot Mike!
    You have an awesome growing collection. Thanks for posting up! Which do you find yourself wearing the most?
    This might be the sickest post in this thread (or the OG thread). Absolutely unbelievable. Your color 4's are stunning.
    I love these. They look great on Barrie with a reverse antique welt. Beautiful shade of Cigar my friend. Enjoy!

    it's a cloudy day unfortunately but they do lighten up a lot in direct light. definitely on the darker end of the whiskey spectrum, though. I'm happy about that, as a very light pair in this style would maybe be too casual

    Have a good trip to Africa. Be smart and safe my friend. Your Indy Boots are looking very good and are well suited for the environment.


    Looking good in your Brown CXL PCTs. Going PCTs two days in a row, but they look completely different...


    Those are a nice looking pair of NSTs. Yeah, I have received pairs off of the seconds list that were absolutely flawless with no R stamp on them before, I do not understand it either...


    Don't be lazy, we enjoy the show. Your Whiskey NSTs are looking very good... Making me excited about my incoming Whiskey Tankers... :)


    Thanks R, I have more colors to photo, but with work and rain, I have been prevented... I was going to do Cigar tomorrow, but current weather predictions seem like that isn't going to happen...


    Congratulations on your new acquisition, those are fantastic shoe. To me, living in San Diego, they are pretty much the best suit shoe available. They look baller with a Navy suit and no one here wears suits and can judge my Whiskey/Navy pairing... :) Regardless of where you are, its a crazy rad shoe. Enjoy them!

    Two different shops are actually doing them right now, but I will not disclose them in the public.

    Ive been daydreaming about casual black shell boots all day. What are everyone's favorite models? Any pictures and impressions are appreciated!

    I have zero black footwear in my almost 30 pair collection. The only one that would make me change my mind and add a pair right now is a black plain toe boot with brass hardware. Or possibly the Leathersoul Pitt boot. Both have their subtle differences in eyelets/sole/welt but the black shell, antique edge is beautiful on both.
