Before I even saw the striping, I was planning on darkening up a pair of walnuts to a light brown. Not sure that's wise with this pair as it may make the striping even more prominent? Or could it actually help?

That wouldn't bother me if I had paid first quality price.

Those don't look bad to me. I picked up a pair when my size was on clearance, and I like them a lot.

Anyway, this LB is a great casual boot with otherwise comfortable Gumlite sole and v soft Dark Brown Grain Leather, but the width across the forefoot is a dealbreaker for me. So, I am looking to sell and thought this may be interest to some of you...
eBay item no.: 261792262490


Check out the link below. Thanks.

I have mentioned the same issue elsewhere in the forum....I'm a pretty consistent 11.5 D in 5 and 108 last styles, but have to size up to 12D in the Long Branch and Daltons. I even have a 12E in a Dalton shell. The 511 is a short narrow last IMO.

Look... If it's bothering you enough that you came on here to ask about it, return them. It's going to bother you till you no longer own the shoes, unless you are the kind of guy that is greatly influenced by public opinion... Then I guess you might feel better listening to these guys than trusting your gut.

I hate to do it, but let me add another question regarding seconds. 

 

So I just received a pair of first and a pair of seconds in the Bleeker brown. 

 

The firsts look great. The seconds look very good. There is one spot of the back of one that I could live with. My issues however is with the heels. They are really off on the seconds. I am not sure how this would affect things. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge on this topic? Also as can be seen, there is a good bit of difference in the color, which is OK for me too. But the firsts, which are darker, are much better looking in terms of color in my opinion. I have put a first up next to a second in a few pics of the heels to show the contrast. 

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately I dont have a regular walnut to compare. From what I see behind the computer screen, the cloud is a bit lighter. I can post more pics if you want.

I don't have any direct experience with anything like that, and I'm not sure I'd even have noticed.  When you put them on and stand in them does it feel weird or uncomfortable?  I suspect that after wearing them a few times, the leather will flex and they'll sit flat, or, at least, as flat as any other shoe.

Can anyone explain the difference between the independence line and shoes that aren't in it?

I'd say a leveled heel is very important. I would be afraid it would mess up your posture and wouldn't risk it.

Just got a pretty good deal on these Carlyle's. $115 after tax from Macys. They currently have a sale plus an additional 25% off. The sake wasn't advertised on the website...so if you live near a Macys give them a call. Just sharing the love. They had Vernons, Gobi, Stradmoks, Park Avenues, Neumoks and a few others on sale. Additionally it's 25% off non sale items as well. Good luck...

Never would have thought about Macy's, thanks for the heads up.
