I received the shoes in March, and took pictures immediately. Only today did I get around to posting pictures.
I have worn them around the house and to the supermarket, but they are not fully broken in yet. I plan to wear them to the office, and will go with a navy suit and a moss green tie. I will also wear them with a tan summer suit and an olive colored suit in the autumn. I think they will go great with dark jeans.
I did not request that the shoes be antiqued, so they are very very green. At first I was a bit disappointed by this. When I placed the order, I had imagined that when I stood, the casual observer would see only an inky black toe. When I sat down and my trousers rode up a bit, the careful observer would note that the shoes gradually lighten into an olive as the eye traveled up to the laces. I may use some black cream and polish on these, or just let them develop the patina they desire.
A recent poll asked about toe taps. I always ask for them. Unfortuntately, with my green Greens, I did not specify that i wanted the taps to be sunk into the leather and flush with the front of the toe. Thus, this pair has the taps sitting on the surface of the sole.
