Rain last:

 

 

Forest last:

 

 

 

 

 

I surprisingly find myself wearing the dark brown ones weekly in the winter and hardly at all in Summer and the snuff ones weekly in the Summer and hardly at all in the Winter.

By the way, suede stretches like a mofo, so wide foot is slightly less of a concern in suede than in calf on the same last.

Love those tassel loafers, CM (you should wear them more!), and I wish I'd bought my Neumoks in suede instead of distressed brown calf.

I also wear my darker suede mostly in the summer. Then again, they are loafers. Derp.

My suede OneShoe™ would be something like this:

I probably will this summer. There always seems to be a better choice with most of my winter fits but summer lets us all let our hair down a bit (sometimes with unfortunate consequences).

No way a chukka can be a one shoe imo. Then again, the closest I could come to a one shoe would be multiple lasts and leathers of one model shoe, and even that I couldnt do.

In any case, I dont see a chukka as a one shoe. Dress boot like the Galways maybe, but not a chukka. Just my take.

^^^ Correct.

Agree...but that's a nice chukka.

Personal preferences probably. I wear my suede chukkas with everything, from beat-up jeans to worsted navy suits. So if there would be a one shoe for me, chukkas it would be.
Fortunately in the real world, the n + 1 rule prevails.

Personal preference in that I am right? wink.gif

@in stitches It's an odd picture; there is more shape to it than that.


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Of G&G, the only lasts that I like are traditional round (which I like a lot) and the smart round (liking a little less than traditional round). Of Vass, the F last is alright. I like it marginally better than most of what Meermin offers and anything AE offers (but not enough that I'd sacrifice 3-4 extra ties for it...that's how I think about clothing...clothing opportunity costs)

 

The only last that has really spoken to me is EG's 606 (what they use on Dovers, I think). But at that point, I'd be asking myself, well, would I rather have a pair of shoes or a jacket from B&T? Second favorite last is C&J 348 (but it isn't great for my feet).

 

EG Dover might be my favorite shoe. Doesn't mean much. But if I had to have a favorite. Dover.

Edit:

For a certain wardrobe, I think chukka would be a good one shoe.
