    Indeed. And they seem to pair very well with that norfolk suit of yours.

    I have a pair like the first picture..you note how slim the boots are, almost all boots for sale right now they are almost all that narrow in size. Now most boots that old may have issues with the leather. The last pair like this the leather all on the inside was so rotted I could not even save them soaking in conditioner for a week...sad as they had never been worn. Now I am careful and ask far more questions when buying as it was a sad thing I paid $150.00 for the boots and cannot use them.. I thought I could save them so I did not hold the seller responsible after getting them. From the outside the boots look great...but even around the inside are of the eyelets for the laces it is so rotted to tie them would rip the leather into tid bits.

    So...I purchased a pair of very very rare boots made in Italy for women of course, that are made in the fashion design of a vintage boot but are not real vintage, made by louboutin. I was not happy with the price tag, but for the quality of the leather I am thinking the price was not too bad at all. I'll have to take pictures and post...

    You can see the bottoms of these shows never been worn, they still have some residue of conditioner on them. Look at the small black tid bits of leather that POPPED off them just having me move them for taking pictures...bummer right?

    Now the top picture red boots, loubouton are fully leather lined and are soft italian calf inside and out.

    I was super sad about the vintage boots...they would have been so nice if not for the leather rot!

    I got my cricket boots on Friday. They were initially very snug and I could barely get my feet in, but after I let them rest with shoe trees for a few days they are starting to fit more comfortably. I still haven't broken them in completely, though. And I realise that I need to clean them.

    They're gonna get a lot of wear this summer, once it's started to dry up outside. :) Right now I live in a sea of mud... Thank god for rubber soled boots!
