Nice, traditional and Vanilla. Great shoes, but the other pair were special, IMO.

Same here.

At least they'll be in the closet.

Thanks, see above. Nothing beats the first time out of the box!

Are they done in the traditional Italian fashion, IE where the topsole and welt are actually slightly MORE square than the toebox? I have a bunch of Santoni Ltd Ed that had that same thing. To lessen the effect, I had my cobbler sand the welt edge down just slightly to match exactly the shape of the toebox.

Just slightly and not enough to bother me. The chukkas and boots are more pronounced.
