I've seen a couple of stock pairs in person at my local Wolverine retailer - both brown CXL, both with scratches and dents - finding this very curious, although I think a good oiling, pigment polish or wax coating could fix the cosmetic issue..

Some people have enough brown/black shoes with brown/black soles already - variety makes it interesting, and obviously a colour combo that one person fancies may not excite another...no need to get too critical.
