Wow, that should look spectacular. 

 

I must be part Norwegian because I just can't get enough of this shoe/boot style.

They do not peel off easily - or at all - if properly installed.  How long they wear is down to the same multiple variables for leather sole wear.

What Roger said, and they will last a lot longer compare to leather sole without topy

Maiden voyage for a pair of galosh oxford captoes from NMWA.

Really nice. The colour really shows its richness in the sunlight.

I'm about to commission a pair of oxfords in black shell cordovan. The only question is how much broguing. Has anyone done oxfords in shell who can share special success or letdown in that department?

I'm thinking F last (G width), in either model 62 (plain cap-toe), 77 (quarter-brogue), or 76 (semi-brogue), all from the Italian page on their website. Metal taps on the toes but otherwise nothing unorthodox.

Hi Concordia,

 

I should goe for Vass nº 77. I do not like oxfords with medallion.  I have similar model in rubi shell of Carmina. Love it!!. Are you thinking to go for single sole?. My Vass order of Oxfords comes with double to single tapered soles. Good luck!!

The quarter does look nice-- as does the semi above. mad.gif

I don't understand the double-to-single thing at all. Some models look nice that way, others look like they've had weird implant surgery. Not a risk I'd take.
