When having shoes made in China, best to source your own leathers:

I'd love some input on what style I should have these made up into. (And apologies if this isn't quite the right thread).

you're looking into 25 pair of shoes. this should be not too difficult.

suede - casual
calf - classic

This is one example, but another person is SpooPoker who I always notice they tie their shoes so loose. What is the deal with that? I like mine racheted down on my foot. Especially on a boot.

Perhaps. I have to say though, I've seen some examples of classic oxfords done in suedes that I absolutely love.

The grey suede would look great made up as a desert boot.

Thanks. The color was a bit flat when I got them so I added some black and marine polish around the toe, heel, and throat to liven it up.

I don't like to be clamped in. I get claustrophobic. Plus, then I can't play footsie across the conference desk.

The 724 last is pretty nice. It's not elongated, but it's still pretty elegant and classy. I do have small feet, so I prefer the slightly longer lasts. The Moore's run about 1/4" shorter than my Lodger Hamiltons and almost 1/2" shorter than the C&J westbourne. There's a lot of room in the toe box similar to the Tricker's 4537 last which is really nice for wider feet, but there's a high instep that required a thin tongue pad to lace tight against the top of my foot. Other than being a little wide, I think they fit pretty true to size.

Sorry, should have said "marine cordovan." It's a dark burgundy.
