Very interesting. They don't look very cordovan to me.

They do an amazing job. I've walked a bit in them and how they crease definitely makes them look more cordovan.

The two pair I have on order is a wholecut on the riva in black shell, and this exact same shoe pictured here but without
brogueing and in black calf.

In my entire life I've never worn brown shoes and I have no intentions on changing that.

Why Riva? I tried on a pair of Riva wholecut and really didn't like that strong tapering/chisel.

But then it's navy calf with full igent patina. Maybe the chisel will be less prominent with cordovan.

Still waiting for a SC trunk show at west coast to nail my fit and last adjustments.

It looks severe when looking down at your feet, but when you look at yourself in a mirror it looks great. I wouldn't call it severe at all really. Even the chiseled last isn't nearly as chiseled as many other makers. I would say it is perfect between the classic and chiseled last. Depending on the styling or is really hard to tell the different between the classic and riva, IMO. At the trunk show Philip even had to look closely and compare some models to determine. Mind you these shoes pictured are also on the riva.

Interesting.... the fine creases look more like calf than shell; but, I'm not an expert and photos can be deceiving. I wonder if the processing of the shell affects how the creases form. Do you know the source of the shell?

Sorry for not clarifying, size down from your US size.

I'm not sure, I actually don't own any American shoes oddly. I wear a uk 9 in mostly everything.
post #779 of 2656
I don't know why more shoemakers don't use flat laces

And you also got you StC in 9?
