Beautiful color. But I really like the shape. The tip is beautiful.

I think he meant Oxford shoes.  Yes balmorals are a specific type of Oxford shoes with its seam running horizontally along its sides, like this:

i really like how the 82 last makes cap toe chelsea shoes look. but with plain toe shoes i think i prefer the 202 last. strange how such a small detail can make such a significant difference

Balmoral = lacing; oxford the style from the pic. smile.gif yeah, sometimes it feels like splitting hair. Things were less confusing when I just knew shoes as "leather."

haha. At the core of it, in the U.S, it is either an Oxford(closed lacing) or a Derby/Blucher(open lacing) right?

I thought that it was the other way around - oxford=closed laces, balmoral=no stitch that touches the bottom of the vamp (aside from the toecap).  That said "balmoral" tends to be pretty common shorthand for "oxford" and I think that it's understandable.

The confusion exists in large part because of:

1. Many Americans (and perhaps others) use the term balmoral to refer to any closed lace shoe. The technically correct term is oxford.

2. Many Americans (and perhaps others) use the term blucher to refer to any open lace shoe. The technically correct term is derby.

Many will continue to use the terms balmoral/blucher, and I have no problem with that, as I know what they mean. biggrin.gif

Carry on ....

Righto this analysis is.

Can someone direct me to a good reference of the different leather choices that EG offers?

I was specifically looking for the burgundy options. The antique burgundy has too much of a mid brown hue for my liking, was looking for something darker and a bit more burgundy.

Nightshade looks like it might fit the bill, any idea what It looks like indoors?
post #8608 of 18413

Nightshade is an awesome color. It is sort of similar to the G&G Rioja.

If that is the case, then I'm sold...

Don't count burgundy out.  I believe it is more attractive than nightshade, especially as it ages.  However, there is no real substitute for viewing them in person.  No wrong choice here.  Good luck.
