BOOT OF THE DAY | #192 | ALDEN DARK BROWN COUNTRY CALF GRAIN INDY BOOT @ FRANS BOONE

What a wonderful boot! When I had to compose a boot for my own it could have the same look as this ALDEN available @ FRANS BOONE did with. From the bootleg to the sole – just perfect. Love the chocolate structured grain calf leather combined with one of my most beloved soles: the ALDEN crepe sole with a leather tip. Combine this great look: the brass eyelets and hooks. Awesome. pics | @FRANS BOONE

LTG BOOT & SHOE COLLECTION | 28 | VINTAGE DURANGO WEST STOVEPIPE BOOTS

Put these pretty rugged DURANGO WEST STOVEPIPE BOOTS out of one of my large boot storage boxes in the basement. It is time to wear some western boots again … and damn, these are so nice: what a great patina. The leather was treated as it was: so irregular in its colors with so many different structures. The boots were a bit dry of a longtime storage so I decided to treat them with MUSTANG PASTE knowing that they will get a bit darker – a very nice colorway too. So – it is time to boot on … pics | LTG
