But I'm thinking maybe less white is more.

I feel that maybe this looks less "golfy"

Any thoughts are appreciated:


 

 

I like these better, white is just hard for me to consider in a dressier shoe

Thanks, I really am torn. However, these are in no way a dress shoe--especially with the natural sole. Would be worn with chinos and perhaps jeans.

Just wore my Neumoras the first time and both shoes squeak up a storm.  What the hell...

Yup. Probably long gone by now.

My RL Saunders chukkas were waiting for me at the door tonight. Ordered a 12d to see if they would work for my usually 13d or 12.5e feet (since nothing was available above a size 12). Length is great. Toebox is just about adequate, with maybe a tiny amount of pinching on my Pinky toe. I expect this to stretch a bit over time, since they're calf.

Very nice.
I wouldn't personally have gotten that color but other than that you're golden.

hhaa ya probably right, but considering i have walnut, bourbon, and cordovan brown for the strand, a 4th pair doesn't make that much sense.  Having them for the sake of the rarity would be nice, but there is nothing i can't get away with having the walnut calf compared to the cordovan

 

Another pair will come along at some point

In Bloomberg Businessweek January 21-27th 2013

Not trying to start a political argument. Just thought it would be interesting for people.

So I sold off my last pair of burgundy shell Mac Neils because they never fit right.  Saved up and bought a pair of firsts.  The new finish is WAY darker than it used to be, but I like it.  Here are the shoes:

 

AppleMark

 

Compared to an older pair of burgundy shell Leeds, they look like they're a whole different color of shell:

So besides my shell Mac Neils that came in today, I have a pair of BB walnut strands and orange and white Neumoks on the way.  Wife also said something about ordering me another pair of custom Neumoks... I think she's a keeper.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Oooh nice. How did you score the Leno tickets? (Only part that really interested me)
Just caught a Craig Ferguson show. The man is a genius.

^^^

They are Wolverine 1000 mile shell cordovan 744 LTD edition (2nds).  Made by AE.  I believe they only make 1,000 per year.  These obviously didn't pass QC due to the tear on the tongue.
