I saw this too. My size, and I DEFINITELY need a third pair of m_moriabc's, but I didn't like the color. I like a darker green, hopefully like the pair of a1923 shell ones coming my way one of these days.
I would never. I think they look hideous actually. Tread sole that comes to a pointed toe is just bizarre. I think Carol went down an odd path at that point and others have ruined their perfectly good pairs trying to emulate.
not everyone's cup of tea (calf?? ) but I quite like them. the reverse calf leather is thick and substantial without been overly heavy, and doesn't have the papery/crispy quality that most other A1923 leathers I've handled seem to possess. the matte colour and variance from buffed leather at the front (nubuck-esque) to coarser reverse at heel is nice too.
SS15 Calf Reverse ST3:
the shaft and ankle are wider than what I'm used to though, not the best for the shrink wrapped jeans!
