    Great photos today namor. I remember the chukka project.
    Are these on the Barrie or plaza? Either way they look amazing.

    They aren't. Mac's feet are bigger than that.

    Edit: Or at least I was pretty sure until I saw that there are some 8.5s listed in that blog...[​IMG]

    RTP, thanks for the Oooh, ahhhh. You know that I am very sensitive about footwear and get discouraged when my shoe pics go unnoticed.

    I've gotten so much use out of my 9015s and 9016s lately, it just reinforces my reasoning for adding the 9070 and 9071 to the lineup. I'd hate for my shoe selection to become too predictable or monotonous. Gotta add some additional variety to keep folks guessing what I might walk up in next.

    FWIW, Given that you have the 9015 and 9016 already (captoe bals), i would respectfully suggest you get the 2160 and 2161 (captoe bluchers) before acquiring the 9070 and 9071 (captoe bals). Perhaps you already have them .....

    Hmm, to be honest, I had not considered that. Your suggestion is very reasonable, and I will certainly afford it the consideration that it warrants. I won't be making any decisions on this matter in the near future, so there is plenty of time to mull it over.

    Thank you for your recommendation.

    Too funny because that's exactly what I was thinking. And that's the ebay price!

    Guys, to be fair, 650AUD is only 611USD at the current exchange rate, so its not quite as outrageous as it may seem.

    I know there are plenty of people who are as enthusiastic about denim as we are about our footwear. Most of the people in my circle are unaware $700 boots exist. I am sure I would have to hear about it for hours should my spending habits come to light.

    exactly.

    guys in my office think ive lost my top when they get out of me what it took and/or the price required to acquire whatever shoes/boots I'm wearing today.

    only reason I haven't delved into higher price denim is I need to lose a little poundage first [​IMG]

    I gave yet to crack the $300 barrier for denim yet... But some of these super heavyweight Japanese denim do look cool

    Alcibiades, good selvedge looks great, but Levi 501's are still the best value for money in my opinion.
