Oh well, live and learn for being an early adopter.


They probably did an overrun and made the extras available now

I think there was a ton of interest, but they've been really backed up with the move.

 

I've had a couple items ship very recently that were due a while ago.

Are some of the Gustin sneakers leather lined and others unlined?

 

My blue lows are nicely leather lined, as are the white lows.  And it looks like the selvedge highs and grey nubucks are also leather lined.

 

But it looks like the Horween CXL #8s and naturals might be unlined.  This observation is based on the photos and the missing reference to leather lining in the description.  But its tough to see in the photos.

 

Anyone know for sure?  Has anyone received a Gustin sneaker without leather lining?

 

I really like the leather lining on my blue lows so it could affect which shoes I buy in the future if some are unlined.

Can't speak for anyone else, as I bought my Horween hightops at the Moving/Sample sale, but they are unlined.

I was up really early today, and tossed on my blue V-neck pigment-dyed t-shirt (from the #6 3-pack).  I love the weight and breathability of the fabric.  This is the third or fourth time I've worn it, and I'd forgotten that I'd noticed some transfer from the shirt to my khaki shorts (which washed out).  Today, I wound up with blue skin, especially in my pits!  A quick shower took care of it, but it was pretty funny-looking. 

 

Still love the shirt ;)

Yeah, I get that with the blue pigment dyed. Did a number on our bedsheets! lol (Note to self: Always wash the shirt first.)

It has been washed at least twice - I'm unconcerned. I'm guessing it will patina and be even better smile.gif

And that's the beauty of their T-shirts.

 

The ones I've worn a few times have already gotten nicer.

Thanks for the info and photos.  I attached a few photos below showing my blue lows with their internal padding and leather lining.  They are super nice and comfortable.

 

I have leather boots from Red Wing and Wolverine that are unlined and it's okay, although maybe not preferable.  Not sure how I feel about unlined leather sneakers, either high or low.  Without the two layers with lining there is also no padding opportunity.

 

This is a big construction difference.  I wonder why the variation in construction for different outer materials?  Is the liner left out on the expensive leathers such as Horween to keep the price within tolerable limits?  Or is the liner left out if the outer leather is greater than a particular thickness?  Or are different companies/facilities/people making some of the shoes?

 

In the current offerings, the sienna green low top is lined while the natural low top appears to be unlined.

 

And the grey nubucks are lined.  I'm tempted by these.

 

The CXL #8 lows are unlined.  Hmmm.

My pair of the white sole Dublins are also unlined, whereas the black hightops are lined.

 

Horween Dublin must simply be that much more expensive, since there is a substantial price difference between these.

Any difference in how they fit? Are the lined version more snug?
post #9867 of 10340

Hmm... No, not that I've noticed. I have only worn them once, and they will stretch. Maybe they will stretch more than the unlined?

 

I imagine they're built from the inside out.

The shoes lining isn't horween leather, so it shouldnt matter. Shoe lining is a completely different material (lambskin/goatskin/kidskin/etc) and the price would be the same regardless of the outer material.

As you say, the lining is a different leather than the exterior and likely the same on all lined variants.  Our point is that perhaps on the shoes with very expensive outer leathers Gustin skipped the inner lining to keep the cost down and hit some particular price point.  It certainly adds cost to a shoe to include the nice leather lining such as shown in my photos of the blue low.

 

The unlined CXL#8 low is $249, which is already quite high for a sneaker.  While the lined blue low and sienna green low are $154.  Perhaps they thought driving the CXL up to $300 would make it unattractive.
