    White’s Semi Dress w Traveler heel in Brown Dress leather. I’ve had them about a year and a half, they get very regular use.

    Today’s boot of comfort choice is my black Buffalo with golden deer lining. All mine have some sort of sheepskin and leather bottom liner. You could go double leather for added comfort, but I enjoy the little bit of warmth the sheep adds FFC3F95D-0A3C-4E0F-9CC3-CD953BAE58F4.jpeg

    @dannyk here’s a shot of the first pair of Mocs from your Uncle:

    Without a doubt the nicest house slippers I have ever owned, although that name doesn’t do them justice. @Monitor you should definitely buy yourself a pair (or two).

    Is the Traveller heel lower than the standard heel? Those look fantastic!

    I would for sure, would get rid of sneaker need altogether but the importing, the shipping, etc. just ruin every deal lately. It's all gone so high up... I can't even get those leather pants from another member how high the shipping is, and I love 'em. It's instant 50% of the price up.

    Yeah didn’t think about that for you. Maybe if the world ever returns to any sort of normalcy it will work out. Or if there’s some way I could proxy for cheaper we could investigate that route. I really think the members here would love them though. Super thick and beefy vegetable tanned Buffalo, elk and deer though of course elk and deer are not quite as thick as the Buffalo. I wear them around the house and outside. Since I own 4 pairs I don’t really keep up on cleaning them or conditioning/waterproofing them. Except my original chocolate elk pair. They’ve gotten sno-seal and recently Huberds shoe grease with the blow-dryer method. The stitching is spot on and beefy as hell. If he has actual sinew available he uses that, if not he uses a synthetic sinew. Every step but one is done by hand. If you opt for the rubber cement and tire tread bottoms he uses an electric sander to buff and scratch the bottom leather so the tire and cement bond better. I’ve watched him do it before. He’s old school a beer in hand and a hand rolled cig hanging out his mouth haha.

    I am considering a boot through Flame Panda, I found some nice nordic elk leather he's willing to use.

    It's on the MP95 last, same as the Foot Patrol. I would do the custom route but when I sent in my measurements, I was getting sizing all over the place so I think you need to get measured in person for that. Since it's waxed flesh (basically chromexcel inside out) I figure I can stretch it a little bit if needed.

    Yeah the traveler heel is more like a normal dress shoe heel. I also have a pair of black Semi Dress with the Cuban / Woodcutter heel.

    I think the Cuban is more comfortable and makes an easier gait for me, but it strikes me as very much a personal preference kind of thing.

    I started an order with Peng this week on a pair of engineer boots. I’m still finalizing details but he mentioned delivery would be 130 days.

    A pair of sneakers or an ankle level boots would beautifully match a jacket, earth color.

    even if it might be a break in style with leather jackets, I love these shoes. I have five pairs of them in different colors and they are the most comfortable and versatile shoes I have ever had. I wear them to everything.

    I’ve heard great things about Solomons from people who stand all day! I’m on my feet sometimes 12-14hrs, so I’ve been considering them.

    Yes, Sir, could confirm that. I got a pair of the below for summer and am very satisfied.

    Another Lucchese day today. Black Nile Crocodile Western Classics. 'Maybe' my favourite pair !
    Boots are NOT the centre of the shot , photo taken by a riding mate on today's Harley ride north of Perth WA.
    These are for sure the toughest Lucchese boots I own.
