    Not mine, (Too small) but if anyone would like a pair of Navy Blue CXL White's Semi-Dress boots, a pair is up for grabs on ebay. Size 10D - I have a jacket in this color, I think the boots look tremendous in this color.

    ^^ Wonder if those are an European only model for RW? I just looked at thier website and I do not see that model, at least on the US Heritage website for RW. Thay are sharp boots indeed.

    I bought a shelf from Ikea and I put all my boots on it. I use it as a place to store them and as a backdrop when I take pictures and shoot Youtube videos.

    It’s great! I wish I had space to see my stuff, but we have a 30s house, and my wife and kids took all the closets.

    I do own two pairs of Meermin boots, one of which a MTO shinki shell cordovan.
    The overall quality is quite good, the attention to detail and finishing, however, are mediocre (well, they have to cut costs somewhere) and not something I'd expect on a 420e pair. My other pair is a french calf shearling lined and that was definitely worth the money.
    Now regarding the shell crodovan: this is the only pair of Shinki Shell I own, and I know it is not fair to compare it to my Alden's Horween ones, as they cost almost double. However I personally like the horween shell much more than the shinki one, it is sturdier, feels more substantial, ripples much less (and much more beautifully).
    I'd definitely buy Meermin's again - but not their Shell Cordovans. I'd rather save the money for an Alden or Crockett & Jones.

    Australian made Blundstone "Dress boots" , ie suede with no steel caps. ( This is my last Australian made pair )
    I had a wee buying frenzy from ebay a few years back and bought several new and NOS Blundstone variants.
    These were $30 Australian at the time on clearance. So I bought 2 pairs of these , but gave one to a good mate.
    Backdrop photo is the Southern Indian Ocean at the West Coast Highway. Laden ships on the horizon.

    Damn, I love the look of Iron Rangers on everyone but me. Whenever I try them on, I look down and see clown feet. I wish I could get over it cuz everyone says how great they are, and everyone else looks cool wearing them.

    I just took my IRs out for their first walk. Pretty comfy from the get go, a little narrow but I’m used to that and it’ll open out I’m sure.
    I planned on taking a pic or two but was obviously too focused weaving in and out of people, dropping a shoulder etc. to keep distance
