What other non-standard colors did she send you?

These really took my expectations to the woodshed. The tan thread and chestnut laces are great with the natty, and the sole is great. A real sleeper in their options!

I love the lower profile compared to the usual wedge sole. These are absurdly comfortable right out of the box too.

Really liking the red plum, can't wait to see the shoes.

Dark olive is definitely dark olive. Goes brown in less light, more green in the sun. I do like the color but natural or brown are more everyday.

As far as colors, I have a navy shell chukka from rider boot that is fabulous. A great, great color for a casual boot.

Let me add...I also love that red plum. It would make a great loafer.

I can confirm since those were shot for our shop - that is indeed olive. as people mentioned so far, the color varies from green to brown depending on light, flex, even hide to hide basis; our recent run of dark olive belts are far darker than the last (as are our naturals - thats CXL for ya). I would argue however that the olive is surprisingly everyday - we like the hide because it matches black almost as well as it matches brown/navy/gray etc.

Parisian blue is amazing. we have the opportunity to do MTO makeups with any hide they offer through PDG, not just what the website is limited to. We ran this belt in parisian last year, I was very happy with it.



I do like that lollipop red though, would be curious to do something there.

If dark olive and olive are different; well then...that is the difference, haha. I belive my loafers are olive. Not dark olive.

I went back and forth between the lollipop red and the red plum casual when I commissioned my Blake SWBs.  Ultimately I decided that the RPC would be more versatile.  But, if you decide to stock something in the LR, I would definitely check it out!

I have the minilug soles on a pair of Red Wing boots made by Rancourt and like them a lot.  Never would have considered them on a pair of shoes, but they work really well on these.  Very nice!

Shame, I would love to match my ranger mocs with that belt. Any chance they'll make an appearance again?
