    burgundy chukkas



    Michael- nice shoes...where did you get Chukkas with so many eyelets? The only Alden Chukkas I see are only 2 eyelets. Seems like your would be a snugger, more boot-like fit. I like that.

    1st post on SF for me. I bought a pair of Cigar Indy's after browsing this thread. Freaking awesome boots! I had my cobbler put on a thin vibram sole. I will post some pics when I've put some mileage on these babies.

    I believe its on the trubalance with double leather soles. I'm not sure if I like the speed hooks. I don't dislike them, but it takes some time to lace up using the hooks. I've been lazy and just wrapping the laces around the anke to tie them. I don't know if other people do that as well.

    The leathersoul models are awesome, but I need to see what I purchase in person.

    Is LSBH open? I was on Rodeo Drive this past Saturday and didn't see the store? Is it in the end of Rodeo Drive if you're coming from Wilshire?

    I just bought both these shoes:
    http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/201...nsts-for-lsbh/


    I've had a Whiskey belt forever and haven't been able to find any Whiskey shoes on a last I like, so that's great. The other pair is also going to be my first Monk Strap/Ravello Alden. I can't wait to get them.

    This is it as far as shoes go for a long long long time.
