    I have boots w speed hooks, they have never damaged my pants. I would get them w the hooks and never look back.

    The ruby and burgundy Carmina boots are amazing.

    The trickers seem too casual

    I love the color 8 shell and agree - but, just to be clear, I was suggesting the burgundy, not the ruby. Color 8 is a deeper/richer tone - they certainly aren't the same.

    I'd be uuuuuuupset if they weren't 4 sizes too big for me. Although for that price I would have bought them just to have them!

    Color 8 Plaza captoe boots at LS. I'm wishing I could justify them but ordered the tanker boot and have the York sole version of the Carminas I was just suggesting. Need some non boots next.

    FedEx Home delivers Tue-Sat, vs office delivers Mon-Fri. I've tried, there's no way to bypass and pick up yourself. What I normally do is have it rerouted to a FedEx Office center that's open 7 days a week, that way I never miss my delivery.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    The website has two options listed blind vs metal eyelets. I wasnt advised there were two versions hoping its the blind otherwise they are going to be returned.

    Allen Edmonds makes the Dalton dress boot in burgundy shell cordovan. It's a shortwing with no speed hooks, but it's Allen Edmonds. Solid boot though.
