Not insane. Great looking boot that should last a long time. Welcome to the dark sideHi Folks,
I'm newish to quality shoes and boots. Just turned 50 and very tempted by a pair of ZB 055 Sarto chukka boots as a present to myself to mark the occassion. I don't wear suits nor too much denim...cords, chinos, wool and flannel trousers. Reckon this colour would go with most of what I own and colours too (beige, navy, mid to light grey etc.). I really love the shape of the boot and the texture. Yet to see the colour in real life though.
I've never spent this amount on shoes or boots. A few hundred euros maybe (CJ, Trickers, Cheaney etc.) but this is a notch up. They'd be a present to myself - no one will starve as the funds come from a kind employer and annual bonus. So "free money". But, again, they are a lot.
Please tell me I am not insane to consider buying these!
Please tell me they are top quality!
Please tell me that they are not so fashionable that they will look silly in 10-15-20 years (I might though!!)!
Please tell me that they will last 10-15-20 years (I have a pair of high street chukka boots from a UK chain, Dune, that are going strong after 14 years and hardly "top quality")!
