Been wearing the Brandys roughly every other day since I got them. They've been through maybe a half dozen applications of Venetian and get brushed before every wear, as well on some days I leave them out in the sun. Last night my gf remarked how they're starting to have some interesting color variations appear...
Can anyone share a photo of what is considered attractive on the 310 last? Aside from perhaps an engineer boot, everything I see looks like was beaten to death with an ugly stick.

For me lengthwise they are identical at the same size.My observation is from having1) a size 7.5c 975 (width is ok, too short)2) a size 8c 975 (perfection with medium wool dress socks)3) a size 7.5 2030 boot (width is ok, too short)4) a size 8d barrie boot (width is slightly snug up front, but wide in the heel with normal cotton athletic socks)5) a size 8 2030 (perfection with medium wool boot socks, quite close my 8c 975s. Note that the 975s are actually slightly longer)I...
Wings & Horns could sell those for $3000 for sure.
^ I had the same thought when I got the email. Damn they are funky. I'd have to see some on-foot photos.
