    I say let's go all out fine with leather sole.

    But would go with consensus, because the leather is the key.

    This, leather or at least Dainite for me. No wedge or christy or anything like that

    I'm thinking that if we do the brown/red french calf (assuming that that leather is actually available), that a double leather sole would be the way to go. I think that the 110 last would be good too. It would look like a really lux version of the boondocker. To me, that is more interesting that just another slightly dressy boot. What say you all?

    Cheers.

    Fok.

    Agreed. The only other thing I would think about is possibly the 2040 last.

    If you are going all out fine 10 eyelets is classy

    With the excavated boot (and I'd like to emphasize that this is still up in the air), 10 eyelets sounds like a good plan. However, for the red/brown "boondocker", I'm thinking that maybe 8 eyelets might be the way to go, sorta thread the needle between "dressy" and "casual", like a boot that someone in a more formal time would have worn for everyday wear.

    thanks

    I think they've only done one (on blog), so I doubt there are any around. I might also be interested in a deeper brown service boot, something darker than the icy mocha. My workwear past is calling, but I want something a little less red wing. 2030 last, deep brown leather, leather sole, copper 6-8 eyelets...

    These look like the Freeman Sporting Club boots that are supposed to go on sale at the end of the month.

    No, there is actually just... one boot. There are not even a pair. They have only ever done that one single boot. If we get to do it here, we'll be super lucky. Everyone, can I get an amen?

    I would 100% throw down for the excavated boots.

    Only thing that would prevent me from throwing down would be a non plain toe.
