Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 948

post #14206 of 19805

Good to know. The good looks are without question; I just wondered if it would make the loafer a little rigid and affect the way it stays on your foot. Anyway, good luck with the new Vass - look forward to pics.

Cordovan on a little loafer seems to me a bit like putting an offroad suspension lift on a Corvette...

Still, it does look great, and I guess the big welt doesn't make sense either but it looks good.  Seriously though, does the extra stiffness cause any problems e.g. heel slippage?

nephew,
try it, you will like it

If I'm not mistaken, those are the RL Marlow? I know you're usually a Alden guy, but even the medallion looks the same.
