Can you please elaborate? What don't you like about the 333?

Seems like the 4 would work best for me with a higher instep but 65 is their most popular last.

Even though I have the Cambridge in #8 shell I often consider getting the McAllister in Merlot. It is that great of a shoe IMO.

 

I haven't seen Strand with burnished toe before. Did you burnish it yourself? I was thinking about burnishing toes of my walnut strands with tragacanth because I have a deep dark scuff on one of them. I'm hesitant to try it though as I have no idea what the result will look like.

I would bet that it's not burnishing, as that shoe is cordovan. Seems a likely combination of darker variation in the shell color and Cold Iron's shadow.

Quick bump to see if anyone knows the answer....

Similar feeling, but nubuck is the opposite side of the hide. Suede inner, nubuck outer.

The shape is pretty hideous.

That is just the way that their Walnut Shell works. The darkness of the Shell changes based upon the angle glanced upon.

Nice Walnut Shell Strands! I can't get enough of mine, and you're right about the color changing depending upon the light.






I admit I raised an eyebrow when I first saw the difference between the calf and Shell Walnut color in the store, but the light was pretty terrible:




Next to my bourbon Strands:

I love how certain shell colors in certain lighting start to look like saddles or spectators.  Really cool!

The overall aesthetics of the shoe/boot. The elongated toe box just does not look proportionate to me. Just my .02

Haven't seen the University in person but the Rutledge (on the 333 last) is awesome. If there was a sale on it right now, I'd be like, "Where's my wallet?!"

I'm sure this has been asked before but how are the V-tread soles? Is it easy/cheap to replace by a cobbler when it gets worn out?

 

I'm assuming the sole underneath is still leather, but the V-tread is just a layer of additional rubber like a Topy?

Same. Where is the coupon code on the mailer? I am looking at the catalog but I don't see anything that is obviously a coupon code...
