Thanks. Here is a shot from the wild. I wore them one day to work after just receiving them and before doing any of the treatments described in my post.
A few pics from the past few weeks.
Tan McTavishes. Great shoe. Get compliments all the time.
A dark image of the Brown Neumoks. Love this shoe. Very comfortable. Colored laces. You must see these in person. I'll try to post some better pics.
Burgundy Shell Cambridges. Ebay pick up. My first shells. Pics are a little dark, sorry.
Walnut BB 5th Ave. Great shoe. I didn't bother messing with the striations on one toe. I figured they would even out with some Walnut polishings over time. Still very new. For the previous poster, here are some shots of the soles and insole of the BB versions.
Did you check them on the website? 3 out of the 4 Malverns are going for $249 instead of $335. The Amoks are nice, but if I'm spending that kind of money, I'll go with calf. I am perfectly happy with my $100 Clarks that are quite similar to the Amoks.
Yeah, I was going to just get the clearance Amoks at $125 until I saw the Malverns on sale. Now I'm also considering saving for the suede Malverns.
Call the Shoebank and ask if there is anything in your size at a store. There very well may be a store somewhere with your size in stock.
