    Thanks, guys. I'm not actually going anywhere just yet. But Smashwindow's pic with his six levels of shoes piqued my interest to see what others have done when faced with this dilemma.

    I do travel often, but I haven't had to weigh my bags as of late.

    I wonder how much the wardrobe of some people in this thread is worth...

    Now I'm curious about that as well haha. It's hard enough for me to decide, and I've got not half the number on that wall.

    Well my advice would be that you pick up the most comfortable pair and leave style aside. I don't know what you do on your trips, but I walk. I walk a lot.

    I'm probably not the most entitled in this thread to give advice since I only have two pairs of pseudo-baller boots and they are low (10sei0otto) or mid tier (WJK) here and I haven't even worn them a lot yet, but this week I've been abroad for work and I promised myself not to pick up any means of transport other than my feet, which has resulted in days walking up to 15 miles. I know my WJK would have destroyed my instep and my 10sei0otto would have resulted in blisters everywhere (very stiff leather). So instead I just brought these ugly but incredibly comfortable boots:

    Definitely not my best looking boots (they're a Timberland rip-off -but on a similar price point- quite popular around here) but so comfy, padding everywhere, very thick rubber sole, really wide...

    On this topic, I wonder which baller boots are the most comfortable.

    I know. We don't even have the: "those look just like all the other ones"/"no way! look at this!" conversation around our house anymore. Now it's just a raised eyebrow and a shoulder shrug.
    Those CCP workbooks are gorgeous, btw. Probably a little nicer in pink, but pretty good in black.

    Random question, but figured this would be the best place to ask....

    I'm looking at ordering some boots from PNP retailing around 1300 Euros. Does anyone have any idea what I should expect to pay in customs/duties when shipping to the US? I know it varies, but just wanted a baseline. Thanks!

    You should expect to pay little if you very politely ask M to declare a lower value for customs (and if he kindly agrees) ;)

    Someone recommend a few pages back to pay extra to get the lined version of the CCP Tornados. The shop I'm considering buying from is telling me there is barely a difference. Anyone have experience in the area of lined vs unlined?

    I'd say it makes a boot a bit nicer but to each his own

    I understood that lined is only for nonreverse leathers. Unlined is for reversed which makes sense

    Someone correct me if that is wrong

    Also the vest bag looks dumb imo

    Thanks for the input guys.

    I'm considering purchasing from The Office, per Steel28's recommendation. Darklands probably has the better price since they are lower for outside the EU, but lacking my size. My other hang up is the new toe shape.

    Trying to get a handle on model codes, is this still accurate?

    CUBS = reverse cordovan, white tanned
    CUL = reverse cordovan, vegetable tanned
    LUC = regular side cordovan, vegetable tanned

    Main difference between the regular and reverse is the texture from scaring?

    If CUBS is scar-side/reverse horse cordovan, I was told it's available lined in AM/2601

    CUL-PTC is horse cordovan leather used on the scar side (which is its
    reverse side), vegetable tanned; this kind of natural tanning makes the
    leather brown, so it can be dyed only with dark colours.

    LUC-PTC is the
    same leather, but used on the regular non-reverse side; same dyeing
    process as CUL-PTC.

    CUBS-PTC is horse cordovan leather used on the scar side (which is its
    reverse side), white tanned; this kind of natural tanning makes the
    leather white, so it can be dyed with any colour.

    SBUC-PTC is the same
    leather, but used on the regular, non-reverse side; same dyeing process
    as CUBS-PTC

    Also what new toe shape? CCP hasn't released anything since 2010 or 08 i think...

    Unless I'm confused, there was some discussion a while back about current models have more of a tapered toe.

    Edit: I'm referring to the change in 2010.
