hehe I do this right now! I don't think anyone cares though, other than saying "yet another pair of wingtips???" I do find it a little precious to take my leather soles through the gunky hell which is the floor of a club. Then again they are all double soled. Maybe I will get one of them topyd and keep those on club duty.

Olive?? Never seen that, I would love to. The natural color wasn't pebble grain? Sounds awesome as well. There was an Imperial non-longwing a few weeks ago in white buck with red rubber sole, I was tempted but I laid off.

Those white ones are supremely sick. I'm also
with the Bostonians
At first I thought these white Kenmoors were fake, were they painted? But no they were factory white, down to the lining. I don't wear them every week but I feel like a rock star when I do. Check your PM
Also, it seems like a lot of the Florsheim wing listings are keyworded "punk, ska, rockabilly, swing" etc. I can picture chunky wingtips and spectators in this crowd, but is there really an underground demand in rockabilly for these authentic vintage shoes? I'm curious.
