The Topman Loakes look very nice too, just have a feeling they'll end up sales fodder (depending on how many they make I guess), bit smart for me too.
Those Paul Smith boots are lovely Trystero.
Yeah, I did consider that.Loake boots
normally retail for around £115-£140 though, so £119 isn't too bad a price to pay for these even if they are discounted at a later date.
They might make the sales in some sizes, but there weren't any 40's left in any of the other three styles when I last checked the site so I didn't want to wait and risk them selling out.
The Moma boots that you posted look like a good deal. The Margiela ones are pretty overpriced though imo. I'd imagine that you could get something much better from a proper shoemaker for that kind of money.
If I had a bigger budget, I'd probably go for something like these Aldens. Really like the shell cordovan.
