    Vass Chelsea, Dark Brown Calf: F last

    Beautiful. I like them very much. I think both the U and F lasts look good only in smaller sizes.

    PG - where does the wearing vs. treasuring angst come from?
    - actually it is my approach with anyone that is to precious with materialistic possessions. Akin to those that have fine bone china, lead crystal, watches or pens & never use what they are made for.

    Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of the shoes posted in this thread, but just not a fan of all the seamless backs that are shown.

    Why so, Wes?

    Dunno, because I like it the back crack? [​IMG] Can't really explain it except I find it looks a bit off. Mind you, I like external heel counters so... I'm not among those who find heel seams look unrefined.

    Bring 'em on!

    In all seriousness though, I had to sell my former pair of pebble grain boots and have been itching for another pair ever since. I'm thinking a EG Galway-style boot in dark brown and perhaps another Chukka. We'll see how things shake out.

    so do your heel counters need rear seams too?

    Nice try, but I'm not about to go all [​IMG] on this thread. Shoes with no heel seams are like pants with no back pockets.

    no no no it was an honest question, i mean we all have odd fetishists, but if yours is to have a seam then how about with/ on heel counters, as some brand do, some dont and other just dart them?
