Quote: But existing LE customers will indeed grow old, die, and no one will truly replace what they represent. The supposed replacements are the next younger generation. However younger generations have different attitudes about life, fashion, and consumption due to different experiences growing up. Why is it that LE customers would simply die off without anyone to replace them? Would you say the same of RL or any other brand? For one, companies...
For the most common office shoe I've seen unfortunately is a black bicycle-toe loafer.

I'm a fan of LE but the shoes are pretty bad. I've seen these in person. The uppers feels more like a cheap, cardboardy microfiber than suede even though it says it's actual leather. The rubber sole is more like plastic. Clarks arent that hard to find for much more than these.
These are the two forms of no-knot Topsiders. Not a fan of these though. These ones from JCrew are also no-knot but still have the laces. The elastic is hidden under the tongue.
Do you have the knot on the outside or on the inside? Alternatively, one could just get the laceless Topsiders. Not the ones with the huge elastic band (i.e. like laceless Purcells). Ugh... They have ones with laces but it's just cosmetic. The laces form an X on the top although the real function is from a hidden elastic band under the tongue. I guess that's not technically laceless.
Get some trees in them, clean and polish them. There's nothing you can spray on your shoes that will magically repair a night of clubbing damage. Besides, the point is to get the gunk off the shoes first, not seal in anything that's on there already. Or if you mean what can you do to protect them in the future, I think most ppl would suggest the same thing. Just care for them properly after the fact rather than treating them with some sort of protectant.
If you're worried about worms in salmon, then you probably shouldn't eat fish period. Salmon, tuna, and other darker-fleshed fish have less parasites than white-fleshed fish. Swordfish, cod, etc. In Kitchen Confidentials, Bourdain mentioned he was scared off from swordfish after a learning about the size of the worms that routinely infect that species. Parasites are a part of life and exist in everything from the fruit and veges we eat to meat and fish. Just buy...
I voted for burnished tan, although I think the classic AO in dark brown is most versatile.
