Agreed with the above - these were an inspired makeup. The red-brown suede insert for the shaft takes these boots from good to great.
Come on, tell us the truth, you're thinking about them. In between those super-smart lawyer thoughts you have, you're thinking, "darn those are nice boots," "wouldn't mind having a pair..."

Exactly.
I don't always like the combinations of suede and leather I see in some shoes. This is one of the best examples of it done in a way that's really complementary. Plus, the subtle shape on the caps are great and the waist... it's just a really elegant last. I want a pair.

Oh I would rock those in a heartbeat - no doubt about it! And I don't have a true dress boot in a medium-dark brown..... Yeah, it's not hard to talk myself into a pair!

You're only a mental click or two away from a website click to buy.

In full disclosure, the image was purloined from Ascot Shoes. (Which I suspect is already known.)


The MTO makeup was not attributed, but as the majority of their offerings appear to be Vass,, that is to whom I attributed them. Possible it could be another maker, St. C, etc.

Here's my call, a man who can argue in front of the Canadian Supreme court can find where to buy those boots if they are for sale somewhere on earth.

Hmm -- U last. I don't own any Vass but description says that's a lower instep last.

So my high instep saved me contemplating a $1200 pair of boots. Thank heaven for small favors.

Very similar to the boots in post #407, these have slightly different and lighter hides, and an open throat. And I think I may like them even better. Also MTO via Ascot Shoes, from, I believe, Vass. -
