I’m getting the camel Latigo tomorrow. I’ll be posting as well.I decided to try the tan Shinki latigo from .com. Ordered Friday and shipped today, so hoping to have by Friday this week as I'm not too far away from Victoria. Will let you know thoughts on leather at least.
My experience has been mixed at best in SF. From what I’ve found it’s either cheap and/or disorganized or much too expensive but nothing in between.Any of my San Francisco Bay Area brethren (I think there are a couple others) here know if we have some trusted cobblers around? Not necessarily for a full Viberg resole, but general GYW work, heels etc.
I have a pair on the way, should be here tomorrow, although it looks like UPS may have them delayed... I will be posting once I have them!Anyone order the Shinki olive Latigo boots from DR? Interesting to hear feedback on the leather and color once you receive them.
Those boots were proxied for $166 back in 2018... they have a pretty large gouge/hole on the left heel. Which is why they were seconds in the first place, though if you are ok with that the leather is very very nice.FYI, there's a pair of size 12 crust horse service boots in 2030 for a reasonable price right now on the site that shall not be mentioned.
Ah makes sense. I refurbished a used pair and love them.Those boots were proxied for $166 back in 2018... they have a pretty large gouge/hole on the left heel. Which is why they were seconds in the first place, though if you are ok with that the leather is very very nice.
