The shape on these seems to be on point, anyone have experience how common projects boots are quality wise? As good as their sneakers? And does the same sizing policy apply for the boots as well?


edit: Don't know if this should've gone to the boots and shoes thread but as it is a bit of a yay/nay too i'll just leave it here.

hate CP serial number branding - looks shit enough on the sneakers but completely out of place on the formal footwear

though would say nay to the above boots even if they were plain

Did you fold your sock over the ankle or are you wearing trackies under your jeans?!

Either way WTF are you doing?

Don't try and be different at black tie things, always looks wrong imo.

Cleaner and simpler the better.

just a personal experience…
even on very formal, dressy events 80% will not notice the branding because they simply don't give a s#, 15% notice it and will either ask you about the brand or compliment you or just think you look cool and 5% (with alden's on their feet) will wrinkle their nose for a second and then don't give a shit Eye-wink

btw, yay on the boots.

Was eyeing a pair of crockett and jones coniston boots but can't get myself to part with the asking price. thought these grenson might be a good alternative… ?

Yay on those Grenson. I've bought a couple of pairs of their shoes recently and been impressed by the quality of them.
