    The boots and the derbies with the regular sole. You only live once!

    Those derbies are awesome! Nice choice. How much were they if you don't mind me asking. You can PM me an answer if you would rather not post pricing information on the forum. Thanks.

    Those are going to age beautifully. I love the way that chromexcel looks once it has been broken in.

    Great, Kolecho, you finally did it!
    I like the boot most, are they in P2 last?
    I like the natural CXL more but brown is still good. But I think you better got other lace. :)

    Glad look and feel good on the feet!


    Maybe I will try some natural CXL next! Yes, those boots are made on P2 last. Good eyes.

    +1 great choice, simple and rugged- and the cognac looks a little darker than in other pics, and will darken more with age
