Not sure how often you wear them but they do look good.

 

Have you had the need to get them re-soled yet?

Not resold yet and have worn at least 100 times (I had a two year stint when I was not wearing suits and these shoes).  They took 20 or so wears just to break in the top leather and now are very comfortable.  

 

Malford, I wouldn't touch these with dye.  They are a bit darker in person, but still very light colored.  Great variation for the spring and summer.  My personal preference...

Also like this light color for the warmer weather... looks very similar to EG's maple.

I've been in love at first sight with EG Galways, now I finally own a pair. I'm a happy camper.

nephew,
I agree with my London nephew that the color is to light to be worn with a suit

Uncle,

After you comment on my shoes being too light colored for my suit, you flip the script and wear a very dark loafer with a light tan pant? What is your rationale?

Nothing major, but probably the best shoes $200 can buy. Meermin classic line...been reading about some QC issues, not the case here.
