I really need something in the mid-brown range.  Ravello/Cognac/Brandy/Walnut/Truffle....

 

I'm in the same position, though would trend toward the lighter end of that spectrum while still staying in the mid-brown milieu... though I'm concerned that if we GMTO somewhere requiring same sizes & widths I'll be too boring and narrow of a gent for y'all (D on the Brannock).

 

sidenote: milieu and y'all in the same sentence.  Life goal achieved.

Cheers.  I don't really do denim.  My cords and moleskins are mostly in the brown / taupe / tan / gold range - except for a pair of cords in - you guessed it - pale grey.   I do have a pair of dark blue linen-blend chinos that are something of a denim substitute and they might work well there, so thanks for the suggestion.

 

It doesn't show well in the pic, but while some greens - like this lovely pair from St. C - are a more earthy green brown:

...my pair is more green / black and doesn't play quite as well with the warm earth tones.

Of course, there could be a distinct possibility that I am overthinking this.  :embar: And apologies to all for the non-shell thread drift.

I just wish Enzo made their cordovan shoes on leather soles.  I don't know why but I have trouble spending north of $500 on anything that's not on a leather sole (double leather even better).

Funny, I have the complete opposite thoughts, I prefer at least a thin rubber outsole to help preserve the sole life in rougher conditions. There is still a leather midsole under it so there's not much difference in construction apart from adding the rubber outsole, especially if it's a topy-like sole.

Also, they do make double leather soles, you just have to specify it in your order. Here is a leather sole version: http://us.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/enzo-bonafe/products/enzo-bonafe-cordovan-wingtip#&gid=1&pid=3

I hear that.  Instead I just be careful not to wear my good shoes and boots in the rain.  when leather soles stay dry they last and last.

Very true, I tend to put my boots through whatever nature throws at them during most days (other than blizzards of course). Though I definitely prefer leather soles when at events such as weddings and the likes for the classic aesthetic and dancing of course.
