    From my view, a black boot can be a very good thing. Especially when it fits and feels good. However this boot is very compartmentalized by the vibram, light-colored sole. It makes it appropriate for a relatively narrow number of wardrobing possibilities.

    I think you could find something that would be more conducive to multiple aesthetic possibilities while maintaining fit.

    Disclaimers: I don't like pebble grain, or large lugg soles.

    Only 10.5 and 12 are available. Once you try the other sizes and select a width (even the other sizes shown) you will get a pop-up box telling you they are not available. Makes a guy wonder why those sizes stay on the list ......

    Color 8 is king, but the cigar chukka wins the shell chukka award IMO. Nice. :D

    The light colored sole seems to be a pretty common trend in black boots today. Right now I'm leaning towards 60% selling, 40% keeping.

    How limiting do you think that sole makes the boots? Does it wreck its synergy with monochrome colored outfits? I could still rock them with a pair of denim or duck canvas jeans...

    The big white soles were very popular a couple of years ago, I think largely due to red wing. They have stuck around a bit. You said you are in college, right? This is a good casual boot that can be worn with denim. If you got a good deal on them and think you would wear them a lot, keep em.

    Another $500 saved due to the fact no one is stocking these navy CXL models in E widths

    They look like a nice, plain shoe.

    Yes it did. :)

    The guys at Sky Valet are good to work with. I've bought Alden, EG, and C&J from them.
