Poking my head up again as I don’t get to SF much these days but a work dinner tomorrow means I get to wear some fancy shoes. Decided to with my Leffot 10th Anny ****ey boot. As with much of my shell, these had a bunch of bloom but cleaned up masterfully with a simple wipe and brush. First shot is after wiping/brushing the boot on the right. Second shot is once complete and third is with laces back in……..

My exotics look great on the rack but every time I reach for something, it’s good ole color 8.

Edit: this is really strange but when I spell out the name of the boot my browser replaces the Coo with ***. As a Black man I think I see what they’re trying to guard against so I appreciate the thought but wow.
I’m with you on the color 8 question. I prefer it to other shell colors. However, it is nice to have some variety once in a while.

Did anyone catch the current issue of Esquire? Keanu Reeves is shown wearing Aldens. Looks like shell cordovan plain toe boots:

Off-topic, personally, I think Keanu Reeves is overrated. I haven’t seen a film where his performance blows me away. He’s great at selecting his films tho. Devil’s Advocate was a good film.

In what way is he overrated? He is famous for his action films. Not so much his acting skills.

Hello, friends—it’s been over a year since I posted on the forum. I haven’t acquired any new footwear besides running shoes in that time. When I think of this group I think of @audog, @smfdoc (remember when you starting buying boots?), @Misterg12 (recently referenced your ravello glaze fix), and others. Of course, my heart weighs heavy when I think of our friend, Jim @jpm1 and his current challenge with cancer. He is as good as it gets.

There's probably a good reason SOP named a special makeup the Wick boot!

Will the Wick be the new Indy? Not likely, but time will tell.

No, is it a good film?

He has a good following and I’ve met people who are really into Keanu Reeves as an actor. He has good PR for sure, I’ve come across several videos or interviews that try to mystify the man.
There is even a website of him with the domain ‘keanuisimmortal’, shit if that’s not hyping up a man idk what is.

im sure if you google his name or ‘who is Keanu reeves’ and keep scrolling and read the titles, you’ll get the gist of initial comment.

"Destination Wedding" is different from any Keanu Reeve's movie I've seen. It's in Netflix inventory, or at least it was a few months ago, and I found it to be interesting, worthwhile viewing.
