I proposed all blind eyelets, but I'm good either way.
@Leaves I think we might have our 6
Does this racing green color hatch grain look dark as in the photo in real life? I saw some photos of other racing green calf shoes and its looks lighter in color. If it is dark enough (closer to black), I am also interested.
With the utmost of due respect, Sir, but these seem awfully dry around the whole vamp - is that how the leather of this fine shoe turns after what looks like very few wears? Nothing personal - lovely shoe, but that leather finish and process doesn't seem to match the quality for the price?
Yup, that's correct. They're more on the narrow side, so to accommodate the width I had to size up a half size.
Perhaps @Leaves can provide more information as to how dark the racing green color is.
