    @chrisefi That is a superb collection of boots. You have all 4 of the boots still on my rare shell "TO GET" list, the Cigar and Ravello WTB, Cigar Indy and Ravello CT.

    Mighty jealous!!

    thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
    awesome. i really like that boot. i would buy it if i didn't already have something very similar.
    fantastic. now you have to post more often.
    great buy. i can't imagine walking into a store and buying whiskey aldens they happened to have there in my size. this is like a yeti sighting.
    really nice casual fit dubs.
    Wow! that offensive line is all going to the hall of fame.
    the nst boots are unbelievable.
    2016 for the rydenboot?!?!?! that would also be unbelievable.

    A great looking collection Chris! Good balance of boots but you need more shoes. :) Fit is key and selling non fitting is the right thing no matter how hard they were to get...
    Good collection my friend, you need more black and Color 8! :)
    Your Ravello Chukkas are looking superb. I need to get mine out. -Mike

    Great boots but, even more, you're doing some great work over there. We need more people like you making us look good overseas. Thanks!
