I got my neumok TTS and they fit very long. However, in convinced my shoe trees stretched them...

I think thick socks would be better (i.e. I removed the orthotic and wore with thick/heavy socks) - it has some pretty stiff seams which pinched various parts of my foot early on

Check out their website the brown grain and waxy brown leather are still shown with the commando sole, the black and golden brown cxl with the thicker sole.

So let's propose this:

 

Strand

Burgundy shell cordovan

Independence lining & insole

Medium brown transparent edge dressing

Brown normal welt

Single JR sole

Wheeling & fudging

 

UPDATE!!! – We now have 11 for the Strand.  We only need ONE more!

I really wanted the CXL Long Branches, but I'm going to exchange them for the dark brown just to get the better sole.

Not in my experience. I had the tan suedes and the width was crazy narrow compared to my 5th and park aves.

Received my new Jeffersons this week and gave them their first polish tonight.  Can't wait to wear them on "Fly Friday".

Have to say the quality control on the tan suedes was some of the worst I had seen..

I don't find the Vibram Gumlite to be particularly "soft."  In fact, Vibram's website rates the Gumlite as having the same "Hardness" and "Durability" scores as their "Megagrip", which is among their high performance line for outdoor activities.

Hope this gets to you in time . . . but the current dark brown LBs have the same sole as your CXL ones.  It's the new sole they use on all the LBs now.  

 

The "before" pictures I posted above are of a previous version of dark brown LBs.  They are no longer sold (unless you get super lucky and find a pair of old stock seconds).

See my post in response to Fat Tuesday above.  Unfortunately, those pictures are outdated.  For a better representation of how they've changed the dark brown LBs (for the worse, IMO), check the current RDA catalog.

+1. Paul made some great points.

I can't believe some of the comments there.

Agreed. He was clearly frustrated, too. It's too easy for some to type things on the internet that I bet would never be said out loud.
