whats in your closet?
Nothing hugely special:
1x a1923 (linen over leather)
3x margiela sidezip(canvas, waxed rose, red crispino "western")
1x CP (geller combat)
1x Cloak (2005 contrast desert boot)
1x S2A sidezip (have to sell, though)
1x Trickers brogue (stowe, something or another)
1x F+B (elios, polished to purple/black/green with black leather laces, but I only use them for riding [horses], really)
I'd love a pair of white 99(6?) (or do I have Porsche on the brain?) - not the combats; a CCP side zip and a Margiela roper. Really would love a pair of white boots, in addition to a pair of white MMM perfs.
one of these is not like the others...
cool stuff in closet, i don't own any mmm, heard quality is all over the place, trickers i'd get another pair but only on the 4444 last
if guidi then a 988 back zip or 696 side zip.
what is s2a?
surface 2 air
Surface to Air - they really don't fit my foot well, despite the size being "correct."
I've had good luck with margiela boots - all three pairs I have are really, really nice. The leather treatment on the rose boots is really something, and the canvas pair may not have the shoemaking pedigree as some of the other brands I own, but so far they appear to be totally bombproof, insanely comfortable, and they have, quite frankly, an absolutely fantastic shape. the Western boots have a wonderful leather and appear to be equally sturdy (of course, they don't compare with the augustas, or even the trickers, in terms of build quality, but they are all absolutely beautiful boots.
The Augustas are really something special, really in all ways, but I've had a lot of problems working them into my everyday wardrobe, which is unfortunate. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair, particularly one of the models that doesn't have the obnoxiously low heel, because they are really, really impressive up close.
I'm not really into the guidi backzips, or the toebox of the 696, but I do like those 995's.
after a lot of back and forth with guidi i am honestly convinced that guidi makes leather socks for men
MMM always looks cool but not at the retail tag, i'd grab a pair on sale, i also remember the western ones i did like them.
trickers, i owned 2 pairs and sold em.
A1923 is just a really well done boot, i have a reverse leather back zip and have no regrets
Would love to get my hands on a pair of 41.5 (42 if they fit like MMM GATs) "Rose Boots" from Maison Martin Margiela
Hey sinnedk, you know pnp got ma+ back zips in yeah?

It's pretty much all I own. Boots, leather jackets, and blazers. I do not have a proper food pyramid of swag.

1285e is the price ($1594)

this guy is wearing ccp tornados, and riding his bike in them, i am surprised that the ccp which he claims he has since 05/06 are not worn out due to the gear switching, when i had my duc i ruined a few beater pairs of sneaks/boots like that
another style i like
