How would you describe the blue? In the pics they look almost black, maybe a midnight navy? I'm interested but only if they're a real navy or darker and not what the casual observer would think of as a "blue shoe".

They are a true navy

I thought I would chime in on the "blue" porters as I recently received mine...Love 'em by the way!  These photos were snapped right before I scuffed the toe-cap while ascending a concrete staircase...I hate it when that happens!  These are stunning shoes and surprisingly comfortable so far.

 

 

Since there were some questions about the color, I thought I'd try to post some natural light "outdoor" pics with some black in the frame.  This first one is taken outdoors under an overcast sky with the shoes angled so they are not directly reflecting any of sky.  The black nylon strap of my bag is included in the frame to help illustrate the degree of "blue" that is noticeable compared to a true black.  As you can see, the blue is minimal in indirect natural light (in incandescent light the blue looks black, and they look black unless you are close up.  These pics were taken from a distance of 1&1/2 feet.)

This photo has the shoe angled to reflect more of the light from the sky.  The blue is only slightly more visible from this angle.

I found this thread about a year ago, then forgot about it and just rediscovered it today. Anything new in the works? I had been looking in to getting a pair of C&J (as the first step up from my usual Alden/AE), but it looks like this may be a better value for the $. I also sent an email to dclewisfootwear@gmail.com to see if I could try something out in my size.

You will be happy with DC Lewis. Top guy as all round here would attest. I have a pair of the Porters myself confirming all of the above.

Sounds good, I'm definitely looking forward to trying something from them. I just got an email back and unfortunately there won't be anything in my size available for a couple months, so I'll just have to play the waiting game for a little while before I can give them a try.

I think with luxury goods, the anticipation is always the best part.  Savor this time and enjoy many happy hours of obsession.  Once you get the shoes and start wearing them, they'll just be things that you wear on your feet and take up closet space (and I mean that in the nicest, most respectful way)
