calf suede     probably just my fat feet
Were 15ss Virgils on the narrower last? I was surprised mine fit so snugly (more snug than my Brigs in the same size). Haven't really worn them yet. Tempted to flip and get 7 holes.
Paraboot's Michael actually pre-date Clarks mocs (they were designed in the 1940s). The generic name is a tyrolean shoe.
Soloist FW16 (pretty similar to Number (N)ine FW09)     juuust about visible in the lookbook:
 Thanks, also a recent purchase, they are Vans x Unused tyvek covered authentics. They were made exclusively for Beams last summer (but I got them BNIB from a rakuten seller).

Re-purposed 501s are an idea I'm really into, but I like the more full-on interpretations a lot of the Japanese brands go in for. Those re/done ones - I think you could buy a cheap vintage pair and have a tailor taper them for a lot less than $267 and get a pretty similar result. It all seems a little too # / instagram heavy too.  My LVC 1978 501s actually have a pretty reasonable taper anyhow, and at 2 years old are actually more interestingly beat than a lot of their...
Well, I've actually been planning to do something Walking Dead inspired for Rais' challenge...
