Great shape of the boots and the leather looks high quality, too.
And one of the few cases where the gear shift protectors fit in well.

Leffot's new "pre-owned" section is basically a stream of shoes-that-look-better-with-age porn: https://leffot.com/shop/index.php/pre-owned.html?limit=all

Got back my RW875s from Dr. Sole for a re-sole; got rid of the crepe sole and went for a single leather mid-sole, low block heel, and black cork half-soles and heel:

Looks good. What's the story with the stitching pattern around the heel?

Thanks CSL! It's sometimes referred to as a Norwegian welt; it's a kind of a signature detail at Dr. Sole for certain resoles like crepe and block heels, done by hand.

Hey Slab, I don't have a receipt but I think it was about $140 total.

Iron Horse:

Although the crepe sole is undeniably comfortable, I much prefer this look.  Beautiful work at an excellent price.

Trooper, awhile.  Left front sole glued as stitching broke, sewn holes in canvas, all lovingly.
