Off Season Find: Billy Reid Kentwood Ropers

Seasonality.  Marketing conditions us to need immediately.  However, taking advantage of sales during the off-season can save you some serious coin.

I’ve argued that Billy Reid makes some of the best roper boots out there (and a few of my #menswear compadres agree).  I’ve got the Terrance boots, and wear them quite a bit.  Upon searching the ‘bay, I came across these Kentwood Ropers:

You’ll have to pardon the images, as they are all screenshots from the auction.

From a condition standpoint, I’m satisfied, especially when you see what I paid for them (more on that in a minute).  The leather looks to be essentially in the same condition as a new pair of these boots, and the soles don’t look like they have any wear at all.  I have a feeling these were sitting in storage for a couple years.

These are the distressed Kentwood Ropers that are impossible to find (link one, link two)

They retail for $495, and they look to be in really good shape; maybe worn 5-10 times.  The action complained of sizing, but I know my size, so I’m ready to go.  Want to know what I got them for?

‘Buy it Now’ for $60.  $10 shipping.  How could I say no?

I’ll let you know how they look once they arrive.

    The uppers look so wide though.

    If by some chance you still have these and want to part with them, please let me know. I have the women’s myself and my husband loves them. I can’t find them anywhere. My Billy Reid boots stand the test of time.
