i think black is such a versatile color but for whatever reason, gets suppressed by most seasoned SF'ers. perhaps in an effort to flee from their own memories of square toed clunkers, they unfairly disqualify black as a viable option. it can be tiring to hear that propaganda, day after day. fortunately, after a while, all those voices just drown into the interwebz. long, live black shell.
I really like the black shell on the picture. This black pair has really high shine. I've purchased 2 pairs Dark cherry and cordovan. Thinking of 3rd and 4th pair. 3rd might be the Navy and forth Black ! Has anyone got a pair of navy ? If you do have a pair of cordovan or navy please post some pic. My cordovan is comming but just want to see real pic of the shoes rather than the fake once on gilt website. Only time I wear black shoes when I have to be really formal ..... black shoes compliments full on formal outfits !
