I can't wait until my next pair comes in. Just waiting to make a few adjustments to my last to narrow it down a bit more from what you guys saw with m,y green Adelaide. After that is adjusted I can't wait to see my u cap toe Adelaide.

Not for me, but a super funky and cool design nonetheless!

The croc was actually supposed to be a nubuck, but we'll see. I'll ask Phillip how they create the matte/nubuck finish and see if I can do it myself.

The hides get sand-blasted in the tannery.

I think you'll ruin your shoes for good, if you were to attack a pair of finished shoes with a sand-blasting gun.

Indeed, that doesn't sound like the best of ideas. I thought maybe it was some sort of fine sanding paper or so. It was ordered with nubuck to make it more discrete, but didn't find it as flashy as I feared with normal croc either. Love how it looked with jeans, and think a heavy tweed could be good in autumn too.

They definitely don't look bad, by any means...just not my cup of tea.

 

I should also note that I'm not the biggest fan and suede AND derbies...so really loving these shoes (aside from St.C craftsmanship, which is obviously lovable!) would always be an uphill climb from my vantage point lol.

Aye, I've been thinking of this model for a year now, and went for it. Love the way their derbies turn out. 
This is the first pair on my personal last, and fit is extremely good. Will be difficult to motivate myself to buy other RTW now. :D

St. Crispin's is very good at messing people's orders up. 

 

I would return them and ask that they be made to the exact original specifications.
