    Well I have a pair of black balmorals on order from cliff roberts which are pretty high so I thought an dressy ankle boot would be a good choice. I have alden chukka and indy for casual, but lookn for something dressier

    If I could do it again, I would go for regular height boots rather than ankle height. YMMV of course

    I'm with you on that.

    Could someone help me determining wich last the boots I posted on page 84 are built on?

    I contacted Eva Vass and she said it is normal there isn't any writing on the inside of the boots. They only started writing the size and last number in their shoes a couple of years ago. I emailed a picture to her so she could help me with the last, bit she hasn't responded yet.

    I guess it is the 3636 last.. the F last looks so similar though


    Thanks,
    Tom

    +1. I got a serious case of blue-balls when a shoebox showed up at our doorstep yesterday. Turned out my wife ordered a pair of something that was out of stock at Saks.

    referring to the still pics, there's a big improvement when worn.

    i also can see the steel eyelets work on them, which is normally not the case for me.

    looking forward to the "regular" boots...

    I'm talking about this height as "regular". It's higher than the oxblood ankle boots but lower than what alliswell posted above
