In case anyone's looking, the J.Crew store on lower 5th Ave in Manhattan has natural chromexcel wingtip boots on sale for $539. Looks like barrie with commando sole. Didn't realize J.Crew carried these.
Mixed feelings on the crepe but the Roy Boot seems to just work for some reason. And I think it's J. Crew that has a natural cxl LWB with a crepe sole that looked pretty good. Very casual but I'm not sure I'd be dressing up those LWBs anyway
