The first shots I can really see of the shoe, actually. Thoughts?

I really like the variation in the color of the upper. Not so sure I like the toe better than a normal wingtip, but if I could buy those exact shoes, I probably would.

I got charged $27 on my pair of Leeds that arrived yesterday. All in with shipping, the FedEx fees and the brutal exchange they cost me $425 CAD. Still much less compared to retail on a near flawless pair of cordovan shoes. 

 

Hit them with some reno and Mac method before putting them on this morning. Only a bit of color came off with the reno so I think past today I will just stick with the Mac method as it looks like these aren't as caked with product as some other peoples cordovan shoes have come.

Do they ship USPS? I can do that next time.

Hmm...so there is a seconds sale coming up?  I may have started shoe shopping at the opportune time.  Any idea when these sales start?  I'm going to be making some trips today and tomorrow to figure out my proper sizing in a few different styles.

Thinking of doing a Promontory Point MTO, what do you guys think of this make-up?

 

Burnished merlot calf, extra burnishing on toe/heel

Split reverse natural welt 

Natural edge dressing

Leather midsole 

Mini-lug outsole

Independence lining and insole

Contrast natural stitching

Antiqued brass eyelets with 2 speedhooks

Natural laces

Brogue strip on captoe (ala Fifth Avenue-don't know if they would be willing to do this)

The Bellevue in brown.   I like em.

The sale's going already.  Is there someone in particular I should call seeing as emails were backed up?  And how do I find who to call.  Sorry for so many questions but I'm very new to this.

Nice make up bgp. I want a more dressy look.   I'm going with brown burnished calf, flat welt, dainite sole and indy lining/insole.  Didn't think about the brogue strip on captoe, GREAT IDEA, I'm going to ask to see if it's possible as well.

post #38126 of 70737

Thank you very much!  All the help's greatly appreciated.

Mind posting in the thread if they say yes or no for the brogue strip on cap ? I always really liked the look of the eastland monroe and it would be amazing to make a promontory MTO with it.

You are right, or rather I was wr...wr...incorrect about duties. I could have sworn that I read somewhere that US made shoes were subject to Canadian duties, but I can't find where I read that now, although I did find information that suggests that US made shoes are duty-exempt.

 

I guess that the extra fee from Fedex was all just Cdn taxes and brokerage.

I'll post what Allison (oops brain fart) says.



 



Any thoughts on the casualness of the boot? I was hoping to wear it with both jeans and possibly business casual when the weather's rough outside. I'm thinking the natural welt/edge might be too casual for the latter.
