Not entirely an Odd Number (11)

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that while I like Tennant's Geek chic fashion because it is wearable, I also enjoy Matt Smith's taste in Time Lord apparel.

Arriving today were these beauties:

That's right I was part of pumpkiny's authentic Smith S6 boot run. WOO HOO
Believe me, it was worth it.

Here are some comparison shots I took with my Smith stand in:

As you can tell, they are quite a tall boot. The 11 eyelets go much father down the foot than a regular boot and they do not curve upwards the way most contemporary shoes/boots do.

If you are interested I suggest you contact pumpkiny, through his blog. These boots were made at a prop production company of the highest calibre, they went in with an order for other people's boots and were fabulously expensive.

These boots were especially made for me. I had to send in measurements. I was told my foot was short and broad so these boots came out especially shaped.

Here they are with my Doctor jeans, which are actually from American Eagle. They are a
Dark Rich Indigo Wash. I also have a pain in black, they are slim styled but this style has been discontinued in favour of a "Slim Straight" jean now in production.

                                                            Dare I say: Geronimo!

UPDATE: Nov 30th 2011

Now, having worn them I can say a few things:
First of all they are very comfortable to wear. They have the "action" sole on the bottom made of rubber so they are very quite, absolutely no clicking like a leather heel.
Because they fit close to the foot, I want to compare them to rock climbing shoes.
But they're boots...
To get in and out you must undo at least 4 eyelets down to get your foot in, only because they do up so high.

  1. Question, what were the original boots you had (the ones in the comparison shot) not the one's made from the prop company.
