Keeps it a touch "casual" (which is a funny word for a shoe that 99% of people will see as a essentially a dress shoe).
Sounds like a nice make up but I'll pass.
Sorry guys, would really like to get in on these, but, upon further consideration, I know I've got a number of other shoe lineup spots that need to be filled in first.
I hear you...let's keep an eye on that make up. the shoe mart has a plaintoe version of that exact boot, but i understand if you guys are going for the cap.
On my end, I found one more picture of the mcnairy to show how the contrast can read. again, shell would pop much more than the calf here, but it's a good indication of this make up. I actually think both of the combinations are pretty money.
im tapped out ATM but LOVE this idea
left shoe makeup is def better IMO if your gonna do it
Half seems like a little too much. I would expect the vendor to ask for a deposit equivalent or slightly higher than the cost basis. I don't know the mark up on Alden, but I'm guessing 200%. So on a $500 shoe/boot that would be about $160. Of course, since we can't order for ourselves, the vendor can ask whatever he wants.
