Definitely not growing on me, especially the dented toes.
They remind me of the boots that 1910s cosplayer who used to be a member here would wear - was it LelandJ? He loved expensive boots that cost $1000 but looked as though they'd been worn by a coalminer or a peasant farmer.
Yeh, I’ll admit that the soft toe is something I’m less sure about. Vintage engineer boots are all like that. I don’t think they started using celastic until the late 1950s.
The soft toe gives it a really nice side profile for those all important Instagram pics. But in real life the only person who sees it from that angle is the dude passed out drunk on the floor.
