Salvatore Ferragamo Loriano 9.5D Olive 2-eyelet derby   Made in Italy.   As the title states. Worn sparingly and well cared for. Lots of life left on the soles.   I really like the look of these, but sleek European aesthetics don't look right on me, and I'm phasing out my non-US-made shoes.   Here's a link showing retail was $650 @Neiman's.   Here's a link to a guy selling them new on ebay for $340.   Price is $100 plus actual shipping to your...

Brother from another mother.
- austerity brogue YES - nine eyelet YES - balmoral boot YES - Olfe YES - rubber or dbl leather YES to either - lighter shell colour preferred - light brown/tan calf or suede ok, too YES Basically every shoe/boot I own is dark brown or #8, so really looking for something lighter, but also dressier. Can we pull the trigger?
  LOL. I know that feel bro.
  Always easier to start light, obviously. You can use a variety of harmful-to-leather chemicals to remove existing color. I've used bleach before.

And if you were going to, start with natural...
