I think those look great! A little lighter in shade at the vamp but overall those shoes have character, reek of quality and are very far from my idea of shabby.

I agree that the russian calf needs a bit more maintenance to look good. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've seen this exact pair in person, albeit dark conditions, the finish and shall we call "not so perfect" finish is what I found very attractive about it and is my next pair.

   far from shabby indeed.

   in addition, I may be stepping in some ish here but I don't feel 3 or 4 'maintenance' sessions in 20 wears is

   extreme or cumbersome by any stretch of the imagination

   I have a similar hatch patterned leather MTO'd by an Italian maker with somewhat similar results

   nothing as drastic as this, mainly in the creases after a couple of wearings.

   my example is 'colored' crust similar to the St C process with the process likely being the culprit.

   oddly enough, I don't have the same experience with a black pair by the same maker, only

   the one of similar color.  I don't mind the maintenance of it, I'm nuts for everything about the shoe

 

   have you contacted St. C about them ?

That amount of maintenance doesn't seem too bad, especially when you said you wore them "out" a couple times and they can easily get kicked around by other people who don't look where they are walking.

Wow 20 times? That would take me years to cycle through my shoes and wear them that many times!! Lol

You must really love them to be wearing them so much and be a stylefroum member. Haha
Plus you work at Skoak so obviously love shoes.

I have to agree. They are one of the nicest derbies that I have seen to date by any maker. Count me in for one very soon! Don't worry I'd change it up a bit so it isn't an exact copy of yours.

Unfortunately my love for oxfords have led to an unbalanced shoe wardrobe which lacks a good amount of rubber soles, despite living in Sweden... Because of that all my rubber soled shoes and boots are worn a lot.

I really do love wearing them and they fit very good! Looking forward to my next pairs.
