Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 890

post #13336 of 20750
They were too narrow.

I experimented when I shouldn't have.

I know my fit in F last. I will go with 3636 in the same size as F last next time for these. I liked the P2 but I think the 3636 will fit my foot better.

Also, 3636 just looks really nice IMO.

Some damage to the spitshine due to cobbles and curbs and whatnot.

Fritzl, the blue shoes are great. From this angle, they look more English to me (I know they're not English though).

Awesome. Enjoy them. How much would a pair of these cost me, if you don't mind me asking?

Peacocky = Italian? Do go on...lookaround.gif

My logic is that it general is more suited to a double sole, and particularly the bentivegna usually has a 360 welt which IMO is a casual detail.

The same could be said of some of the over-the-top antiquing that's out there now. Personally, I love it.

Not sure what you're asking...?

I'm saying that some of the OTT norwegese stitched italian shoes - which are often on square-ish toed lasts and feature burnished/interesting leather - stand out significantly when worn with, say, a navy suit. Nothing wrong with that, just that if i'm going to be wearing a formal suit i'd want things to be a bit more coherent.

I prefer these types of shoes with more casual clothes, where I think they can blend in a bit more easily - keeping in mind I wear camo print, purple corduroy, olive tweed, oxidised copper coloured pants casually.

I'm not the biggest fan of antiquing, personally. I prefer to just let it happen naturally.
