    I went riding in Patagonia and they boots from that are treasured.

    If I'm not mistaken they are a pair of Maxwells?

    Juanito I can't believe you chose an English boot!

    Riding boots are what argentina does even better than football!

    Sherrers are you an accomplished rider (so to speak)?

    My mother has just been to spain to a polo club in the vain hope of learning how to play. Ever tried you hand at polo?

    I still havent been out on the horses yet. Im a coward i admit it.

    They look old but they aren't. British boots often have the shoe part incorporated into the design. You can tell by the laces and straps that they are brand new and handmade. The laces and straps deteriorate and wear very quickly. The thinner the leather the more it perishes. If the boots were old but the straps new they would be different colours. It's a work of art to get different leathers to match and almost impossible without colouring the whole thing. The leather is so pale and dappled it has not been stained with a colour.

    Anyway... all boot freaks know a Maxwell bespoke pair when they see them!

    also the molds the boots are in are always made and adjusted to the individual foot. If they were antique the mold wouldn't be there or wouldn't fit so closely, or would be old wood.

    May i be so bold as to enquire what footwear you all go out clubbing in?

    I pretty much always wear trainers. Usually Adidas.

    +1 The only trainer to be seen in (apart from a nice pair of Borg Elites).

    basically mate we put this shoe up for a laugh 'cos we don't like Faith and their forum is basically trainers, football, abuse and now and again mentions some music but never in a nice way. So we don't want to resemble them in any way.

    you don't have wear proper shoes to get involved. I'm fairly sure sherrers doesn't wear high heels even though he seems to know a disturbing amount about them Wink
