    Good points, however everything i said would tell me that I would be less than convinced or certain. So for me I would go elsewhere where I would be more certain that I was getting a good thing.

    The above pattern looks very similar to the Wolverine 721 (limted run) boots in color 8 shell cordovan (http://wingtip.com/product/wolverine/limited-edition-721ltd-boot/29990). They are not made anymore afaik, but you might find some old stock somewhere such as the 'bay or grailed. Btw they were made by AE for wolverine and cost about 750 at wingtip when they were in stock

    Right, and I do like the look of the 721 100miles. But those are not an option as I'm looking for a women's 5ish size boot.

    Thank you Drees and Stevent for your input. I'll give my decision some more thought and time.

    Those cordovan colors are amazing. How much lighter was the natural when you got it? Those really glow!

    Thank you, I'll send a request. I'm just not familiar enough with the serious men's boot makers to know which ones might have women's or small men's models in their repertoire.

    You may want to check with Leffot. I'm sure Steven or Paul will be able to answer your questions. Good luck.

    Watchman1, there's a lot of empty space in that AE pair of yours, the fit won't support your feet as well as it could. Insoles, tongue pads, or heel grips might make your day.
