Yeah, flat welt is what I meant__ that's the one I got on the Derbies
@DuckOB: 🙏🏻Tnx, nice to know ... Enjoy the derby!Sleekier !? Really !?IRL, stitchdown has bigger footprint than GYW.
SD 101 @5y/o+ ... [perpetually] work in progress ... Sorry for the iPhone quality😕
#CurrentSituation: Still waiting for the right foot to heal properly ..... So, I can road-test these English Tan Latigo Derby :: 1035 :: Partially structured toes :: Flat natural GYW :: Dainite
^ I use "Superfeet" half-insoles on [some] of my boots w/ heel &/or arch issues. That way, it does not impact the forefoot/vamp.I have Malton & Allan on 4497. I went TTS__ 4497=110
@FOK: 'Got the PayPal adjustment, tnx🙏🏻
@MM: IIRC spoon is for shell, w/c butt, is not. Wabi-sabi__ just wear 'em👊🏼 They shouldn't need conditioning at all ... not for awhile. Wipe w/ slightly damp cloth to clean. If you apply oil/conditioner right now, leather will darken up. Unless, that's your aim.
^^ True. True. Shell, you're not jst paying for rarity, but also for the "finish". The Context Butt, however, is like harvesting fruits before they ripe__ less material [investment/cost] + less spoilage. Just cuz the membrane [w/ potential for shell] was left in, does not mean you're actually getting shell ... with all its most sought-after features & properties. What it was, was a good marketing ploy to get peeps interested enough to start talking ... & jonesing. ...
^ Toes look structured__ that +GYW account for the seemingly extra bulk__ vs an unstructured stitch down, IMO.
