These rules were entirely predictable though unfortunate. However, there are still some options which may work within these rules.
Using the Odenwald as an example, there are 2 (very) different welt options which you could choose from, then add the material change.
If you automatically used the brown Odenwald and added brown shell, you'd only have one welt option...
but you might prefer the chili welt of the black Odenwald if you bought a pair with brown shell.
There are many examples where multiple welts/soles/etc are available, so worth reviewing shoe by shoe.
Get Burgundy anything if you were to ask me. Seems like you like Balmorals, so I would stick with something classic, like the Strand... Maybe have fun like our friend and do it with a lighter edge, unless you are pepper in which case ignore that recommendation.
I agree, was thinking that shell rolling wouldnt be as bad and add in the shearling it might offset even further creasing. it is really the lug sole thing that is getting me...I would want these for some cold weather outdoor fun...not shoveling but going to games which often involve grossness of some sort- trips to the city in foul weather...maybe ski trip...who knows.
I see the vtread working for someone who is walking a lot in winter and needs it still to retain a classier profile...but that aint me..lol
