what's the difference, if any, between the models? and are the newer boots better quality than the first versions?
thanks in advance!
Is it the same color? I have the dual pull tab tan and grey, but those are an exclusive from the business fashion. They are also a little lighter in color than other tan and grey models.I also have the "dark grey" single tab crepe sole model available from this past season found in most stores which are significantly darker, but not as dark as my "black" pair.
It seems a few our comments on this forum are the closest thing to an official CP list. This is what I noted thus far:
The Business Fashion Exclusives:
1797 _ 1302 Tan (dual pull tabs, lighter sole)
1797 _ 5472 Grey (dual pull tabs, lighter crepe sole, black sole trim)
1897 __ 1302 Sand and Tan (single tab, lighter sole)
1897 __ 5472 Dark Grey (single tab, lighter sole w/ brown sole trim
1851 __ 0241 Khaki (single pull tab, tan color sole)
1851 __ 7547 Black (single pull tab, black sole)
As you can see 1302 and 5472 are available on all sand/tan and grey models, respectively. I have seen 3 different hues of tan thus far. Not enough to have all three in sand/tan, but definitely slightly noticeable in person, under the same lighting. They grey colors are more noticeable Light for the business fashion exclusive , medium/dark for the "dark grey" 5472, and and the black suede is a very dark grey, but not true black.
