    a little different: Blackbird's boot uses calf grain, as opposed to smooth calfskin - in addition, Blackbird has only one size in stock for their boot

    Shell is beautiful, no doubt - however, finding a shell boot is very easy - however, finding a black calf skin boot, right now, is difficult - thus the MTO request

    Hrm...so the pair of CXL cap toe boots I purchased are comfortable but I am noticing some pressure across the top of my feet where the upper meets the cap toe. This is my first cxl boot and my first captoe as well. Is this normal? Should I expect it to loosen a bit? It does not bother me too much but I tried on my other barrie-lasted shoes (chukka, lwb, ptb) last night that are all on the same size and none have the same pressure point.

    I cannot speak of the CXL cap toe but my shell cap toes do not have this.

    Eh, do you mean you feel pressure over your toe all the time?

    These look terrific. A fantastic depth of colour and as you suggest are versatile enough to wear casually or with a suit. They look great against your Ralph Lauren herringbone pants.

    Just wore my cigar LWB's with a khaki-colored suit and tie, and got several compliments throughout the day. They certainly dress up nicely!
