Keep four of seven, sell three:
Color 8 chukkas, antique sole
Color 8 plain toe boot, commando sole I'd get rid of either these or the chukkas. They probably look very similar under pants.
Color 8 Indy boot, commando sole
Color 8 plain toe dover Blucher (unworn) Easiest to sell b/c it's unworn
Black Cordovan Jumper Boots, Commando Sole
Color 8 Cordovan Longwing bluchers
Black Cordovan Longwing Bluchers, matched eyelets B/c Black shoes are more formal, I just have difficulty with black shoes in casual styles like blucher and especially full brogues.

Keep two of three, sell one:
Snuff suede indy boot, red brick sole Snuff and humus are close enough and I' prefer Commando, but if you prefer the red brick sole, move the humus indy.
Snuff suede spit toe boot (true balance), brass eyelets
Humus suede Indy boot, commando sole

Keep two of three, sell one:
Tan suede plain toe blucher I think these would be my least worn overall and among this group
Dark brown suede chukka, Barrie
Snuff suede longwing blucher

Keep two of three, sell one:
Indy Boot 403
CXL Indy Boot, brass eyelets, commando sole
Black regina wingtip boot See my comment above about black shoes

Keep three of four, sell one (extremely unlikely I do this, but whatever):
Ravello U-Tip Bluchers, Aberdeen, commando sole
Color 4 Wingtip Boots, Double Leather Sole
Whiskey Tanker Boots, Brass Eyelets
Whiskey Plain Toe Blucher The other three seem so unique, things you can't get again. A PTB seems like a regular run rare shell option. Of rare shell, they are almost commons.

milkshake suede and red wine, what could go wrong with that combo. Yes, the boots are on the kitchen counter and I don't care.View attachment 1590429
Few pages late here but damn these look great. I haven’t seen a milkshake Plain toed boot before, and it’s even on leather soles! Which shop made these up? They are awesome.

Fyi Ealdwine is doing a similar boot just on commando. Open pre-orders for all sizes.

On this order and so excited about it. I’ve been wanting a milkshake makeup for a while, and a plain toe boot is perfect.

thanks for the tip. I love the idea except I must be the last person still around who hates commando soles. its the one thing I can't get past. shame, because those would be killer.

Yeah it looks really good. I got on the Handsewn plaza Indy boots in milkshake from them. Those should be in soon.
Awesome, looking forward to seeing them. I almost pulled the trigger on those but had a little too much overlap.

lol, I agree with most of this (except the snuff suede Indy vs snuff tanker decision)
Great minds, almost... Lol! I am a fan of the Tanker, and the red brick sole doesn't compliment the Indy IHMO. At the end of the day, you have an amazing collection. I know it's difficult to let anything go.
:cheers:
