How durable is that linen going to be? I love the contrast, but if they are really delicate I would rather go with the brown/brown.

Those shoes are the sexy.

+1 I plan to ask AE about the linen thickness. But you're right - brown/brown mesh would be perfectly fine, and a suitable homage to the originals that got this whole thing going.

That is the only version I like. The mesh is kind of odd to me

They will be fairly durable but may be hard to clean.

There's enough of a history surrounding this particular model (which would never have returned to production if it weren't for Matt Deckard) that buying it at full price is okay, IMO.

I like it, but will probably order a pair in cognac or some other tan color.

I was thinking along the same lines. How do you think the cognac/linen combo would look as opposed to cognac/cognac mesh? What about walnut/linen or a walnut/walnut mesh?

I would prefer a Linen-Walnut combo but linen-brown is nice too.

That was what I was hoping for, but I am not disappointed in the selection presented.

If it lives up to expectations, the Strawfut should gain "SF-approved" designation, especially the canvas/brown and brown/brown combos.

The description mentions "nylon mesh". Is this shoe just linen colored nylon, or is it actual linen?
