I really like these shoes, but would prefer a version without the white rubber sole....any ideas? Would be nice to keep it under $300. Thanks
i never pay full retail for shoes, except for shell cordovan which are hard to find on sale anywhere
My understanding is that the sizing on these can be inconsistent, but I am a true 10.5 D, so anything that will fit me regardless of what size is stamped I would be interest in.
Looking to add some more Hermes ties to my collection, particularly the ones with whimsical designs. Open to all colors, but don't want anything too old or damaged.
The full-straps are the only loafers I ever wear with a suit (and I do it regularly), so yes I do think they are a step up in formality.

Are these the same thing, just re-branded as BB? Are there any other differences? Also, does the BB burgundy = Color #8? Thanks
Looking to grab some full-strap alden loafers or similar styled shoes in size 10.5 D (10.5 B/D if Alden) I am open to all colors, and conditions as long as the price is appropriate.
