Date night tonight so I’m putting my fancy Wesco’s on. These are the #430.


Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,
Everything under the gun.

@Baba-san how’s the grip in the snow?  I like the look of the 700 sole.

I had that green leather especially tanned for us.  I thought it would sell like crack - it didn't.....

I guess its hard to predict what the public wants sometimes..like when I look at certain items on the outlet.
Calculated risk. Or even when you yourself think..this won't do well...and it just takes off !

WOW. So fucking cool. Mine are lined,which kind of makes them too warm to wear,while riding in the Summer, And the sole is black. So,pretty close. I’ll have to try and find that post,cause I’m pretty sure I posted them wearing my 555s. @vaquero357    One other thing...777XHS didn’t come out until 2016?

That’s them,I had also sent that same picture of the boots,by the exhaust pipe, to Chris at Wesco,and for some reason it got all distorted in the process. He was,somehow, able to fix it before he posted it on Instagram. Those boots were about $500 when I did the original build. Probably a bit more these days. I had an extra 1/4 inch added to the heels when I sent them in to be refurbished. Can’t wait to see yours.

...went with the brown and not black or natural because I thought I saw some brown in your pic's. I'm thinking brown will really look good with the Brass and if need be I can always dye them blacker.

...good stuff my friend!! 8)

I ordered some Cork Dr. Sole soles for the custom Johannes build I submitted a couple weeks ago. They just came today and boy am I excited.

Well played....
