Thanks guys! Glad you like them. The second photo shows the closest true-to-life color. They're definitely bulky in the sole which takes some getting used to, but I look forward to breaking them in. Moo - these are Horween and technically the same color as the C&J for RL Darltons. I believe you saw what was initially selling the recent Vass saddle shells for and these were around there.
What is the "toe spring"? I haven't heard that term before.
it is basically how much the end of the toe lifts of the floor, normally IIRC it can be any where from 1/2 to 2/3 of a cm, thro brand a region will have a play on this, if the whole shoe is flat then it migh/ should cause the shoe to double flex, can also happen when the heel is too high too
To each their own. I guess I'm just easy to please!
pls, don't take offense, but it nails it. i just say tongue pads. these are not AE seconds.

it's in fact not a minor detail and it shouldn't happen in this league. "you" pay top dollar for that, not? the haf-sole is not their strongest asset, though it's favoured by a lot of people. to each their own.
on a side note: i don't make fun on the regard of the health of my feet. period.
London Chukka in Dark Brown shell cordovan with natural soles with topy and 360 Goyser welt on the P2 last with an HAF sole. Fun!
nice, and if you don't mind, can you tell me what price they quote for this? I send Vass an email about some pricing on Shell Boots or Shell Chukka, never got a response, and never really got the time to call them during work either...
