I got my Onderhoud boots in Maryam horsebutt leather. Given how awful the Indonesian leather on my brother's Sagaras was and what I've heard from other owners, I am glad that I went with this leather instead. The leather is not teacore, but they should age pretty nicely.

I love Paraboot. Have several pairs at this point. Those are super cool, Broark.

I forgot to post these Flame Panda boots. He only sells on Instagram now, but he's a bootmaker from China who imports basically all of his materials and hand welts all his boots and on this pair (and I think all his boots) does hand sewing on the outsoles as well. His moc toes and monkey boots are my favorite so I got his monkey boots and I like them a lot. He does  a triple sole on the front which tapers down to a single leather midsole with a full rubber sole in the middle before the heel stack. Quality is overall really good. The midsole/outsole stitching is very dense and quite clean for being done by hand, but not as clean as White Kloud by any means. Upper stitching is also overall really good and quite dense, but not as neat or consistent as Clinch. Either way, the boots are worth a lot more than the price in my opinion (which is around $670 for this leather.) That leather is Maryam natural horserump which does include the shell part. It is quite different from the leather on my Onderhouds which is also Maryam horse leather, but this version has a lot more shell in it.

Great! I was looking forward to hearing your assessment of these^^, Jake. To me they look close to the RMC monkey boots that Standard & Strange had in stock a while back. I really liked those. Didn't buy them but was tempted...

yes they do look similar and I like the look of both quite a lot. The Shinki leather on the RMCs is certainly tempting too.

Here are some updated shots of my White Klouds in Badalassi Minerva Cognac leather. Definitely my favorite boots. I have some more update shots of some of my other boots that I will post soon as well.
