1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It looks like a S23M or S43M model- leather looks like HD01 (destroyed horse).

    I have the tan antelope leather Augusta Z9's and the side zip, tall lace black Julius combats. What would be a good 3rd pair of 'baller boot/shoes' to go with? I'm definitely leaning towards black CCP tornadoes as seen below. Open to any suggestions you guys may have though!

    ^ definitely, you have a lot of other colors already, so that would be a great alternate pair!

    I like the white leather on those CCPs but prefer a rounder toe. I think that is the standard CCP shape right? I don't have in-hand experience with them.

    Yeah, kinda pointy. Aggressive elf-boots.

    Really been wanting a pair of white boots, think cordovan will hold the white better too

    white /cream boots always seems like a good idea, unfortunately irl they are very hard to pull off

    I got a few more pictures from the seller. I'm pretty sure these are legitimate. Now I need to decide whether to go for these or wait until I can pay cash for the oiled horse Z9s from Atelier.

    100% Authentic- you can tell by looking at the sole; it's the the double sole version.

    Here are some random pics I've been meaning to add:

    seriously thinking about buying the W+H Service boots (read the whole thread on it, pretty ridiculous to buy the original daytons, dont wanna deal with all that hassle), but I have also heard there may be better boots for 700...but are they in a similar style? Are there in any similar style casual boots in the 700 range better in construction than W+H/D? thanks

    If those are your size, save up and buy them ASAP. Those are some of the best boots Simone ever made. Really hard to find and you definitely won't be disappointed in construction/material. I'm biased though as I've wanted those for over a year.

    700 gives you a lot of options. You could get a used pair of Guidi/Carpe/etc if you keep and eye out. Carpe Diem (or whatever the name is now) has some boots that are in more of a work boot / service boot style. A lot of these would also have the upturned toe that was a selling point of the W+H boot. As far a a new boot I really like these.
