It took a couple of tries but I finally got a brown Manistee belt from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that is light enough to match my Shell Strands.

:embar: It's not C&J?  Otherwise, I've made a mistake in testing the GMTO waters with them, re: the P&Co shell wingtip... :hide:

@Neo1s appreciation of lug soles made me pull out another pair that do not get the rotation time they deserve. These are my own "MTO" chili Bentons. Recrafted at the factory and moved to the mini lug sole, visible heel stack and then added exposed brass eyelets. They make a nice casual shoe with jeans.

Hope everyone is staying dry out there. I stepped in some major puddles yesterday, and with heavy rain in the forecast again today, my options were slightly limited. Most of my bad weather, rubber soled shoes just weren't going to cut it. Almost reached for the Normandy again, but then remembered these grain First Aves that had been stored for fall/winter. (Plus... gasp!... I didn't want to wear the same pair twice in one week.)

I'm not ruling anything out. The Fifth Aves were purchased probably in early April. They are worn 1-2 times per week. They started out pretty snug across the forefoot and now I can wiggle my toes in there. There doesn't SEEM to be too much room up front. I do seem to spend a lot of time adjusting the tension of my laces.

Hey guys can I get your opinion on these shoes (Allen Edmunds Redan Street Oxford)? there seems to be a more common golf shoe version out there with the spikes, the street version is a lot less common (in fact i couldn't find these in stock anywhere online, even on Ebay!). My concern is matching the rest of my outfit, as they have two different colors. In addition, since they make a golf shoe version with the spikes, I am also concerned about them looking too much like golf shoes. I'm looking at them as more of a casual dress shoe, as opposed to a work shoe. Any thoughts?

 

I paid $150 for them in store at Nordstrom Rack and they are returnable

I wouldn't worry too much about them being seen as a golf shoe (it wasn't my first impression). Pairing it might be a little more difficult. I was going tosuggest khakis or navy chinos but I'm not totally sure. I am struggling to see it with jeans at all.

Chili MacNeils for a Wingtip Wednesday edition of Cheap Clothes, Expensive Shoes. These being my oldest and most expensive pair as I paid pretty close to full price. baldy[1].gif

@smfdoc You turned that from something I would never look at to something I would have to own no question 😊

@ace13x Gonna check that out in person, but, yeah...that's no Kiowa.

@SLCRich What do you think of that redan? I know you'd have em sockless on the course. To me they look like golf shoes but maybe I've just seen to many.

Haven't really seen these discussed here, but I recently picked up these Malverns from eBay that as far as I can tell have only been worn outside a couple of times for $41.

I know next to nothing about this model, but the country grain uppers and dainite sole should provide an excellent shoe for wet weather in the fall/winter. Very happy with these.

 

 

When I had a pair of Bellevues made in natural CXL without perforations, they said "great, we can use the Malvern pattern." 

 

Excellent find and price.  They are great beaters.

The picture @kooza26 posted my first thought was golf shoes. Second is even the non golf shoe look would be really tough to pair with my wardrobe, HOWEVER, I love the look. Almost a saddle like shoe. And if it's comfortable on your foot...do the damn thing
