Have gone a bit nuts in the sale this year - three so far, and I'm strongly considering two more...

Actually, YOUR post is the first about the matter............lol

With a little snow on the ground, I've been wearing nothing but boots lately. Here are the Cascades.

Shoes look fine. Get a haircut.

Those are some cool-looking shoe trees (the shoes go without saying smile.gif) - what's the story on them?

I found myself shoveling snow yesterday at work, and the Promontory Points managed just fine. These are seconds I picked up last year for $127. The football grain grows on you, and seems to get better when roughed up.





While I would never consider paying for a pair of Vibergs, these could pass for a poor-man's version... if only they had a double leather sole.

Not redundant. The Boca Raton is a weave. Should be worn with a Summer suit on a hot day, or in the Deep South. Most definitely not sockless with shorts.

As someone who lives in the Deep South, a word of caution: all these weaved shoes are also lined... Not getting a bunch of airflow there, but you will get a little more give in the leather by nature of the weave.

Gents..have a pair of Enfields ( size 10B) and Woodstocks (10A) both in Burgundy/Merlot and in pretty decent shape (Saphir treated.) If any interest, PM me and I will take and forward on some pics. Both are a bit snug for this 10C/B 5 Last aficionado.  btw: Shell Cordo PAs are on their way after some minor tweaking. (Not MTO, but just tweaked.)

I need to tidy up my house today. I've got AE boxes strewn everywhere. The bedroom, the living room, the dining room, the kitchen...

 

I may be a slob, but at least my feet look fantastic.

Those do look like they're taking a beating quite gracefully. What kind of sole is on them now? Dainite or mini-lug would seem like the most fitting to me.

Suede MacNeils for a Sunday.
