I'd read this discussion before you decide to remove the topy because you think it is "bad" for the shoe: http://www.styleforum.net/t/179041/my-first-shoes-with-topy-put-on It appears that while some people don't like how they look, or don't like the "idea" of covering up a leather sole...most would agree that a topy is not going to cause any harm. This is both consistent with my own experience and in line with what has been communicated to me by a few longtime shoemakers...
factoria?? weird
Those cap toes look great! Which CJ/EG/Vass/Alden/AE last is most similar to the Forest last in appearance? Some pictures make the Forest last look a bit blobby, others (like yours) make it seem slightly elongated...and all the comparison pics I see are minimally helpful and just shoe it next to some other Carmina last I'm not familiar with.
i prefer to look of the zippered tote, but this does look like a good deal at that price

Size is 9.5 D. I guess I could post some pictures, but since these are new, I figured I'd first try with just the link. Price includes shipping within the...
this is how all the 257's are, there is a mix of both open and closed pockets.i find the open pockets are perfect for my sunglasses case...it fits nicely and doesn't fall out the bottom. i have also used the open pockets to hold a bottle of water, lotion, and a spare laptop battery....as long as the item you are holding is long enough it will extend to to the bottom of the bag and not fall out of place.
