If I had the scratch, I'd probably go for the Mora 2.0 in brown shell to somewhat make up for the recently deceased Norwich. Or, as mentioned previously, a brown shell Dundee 2.0 or Leeds 2.0 would suit me just fine.

I'm with you, buddy. I'm even hesitant to wear walnut or whiskey. Feels like I'm wearing orange pumpkins on my feet.

If I had to take an educated guess, I don't think Color 2 will be on the table for the trunk show - it is a very niche color, more so than Green. My money is on Navy, Green, and Bourbon (or Natural). Horween has been cranking out Bourbon shells lately, and it's a nice color with more depth than Natural and a shade darker than most Whiskey is.

Thiat is why I guessed #2. When I read ruby, I didn't think #4 was red enough. But I do agree #4 is much more likely.

I wonder if the stores will have some samlpe swatches.

Edit:  I figured out why I thought they were Canadian.  There is another shoe call the Bloor Street, which I think is made for Canada.   Boardroom, Bloor Street -- they all sound and look similar.

Interestingly, the break in period was pretty painful- conversely, the 65 last is comfortable out of the box for me. I like them, but what I'll probably eventually do is have them recrafted with either Dainite or a combo tap sole and use them as crappy weather shoes, then get black PA's or Exchange Place's as a not-crappy-weather shoe

Great Laces!

Scanning through the website, pretty disappointed with the pricing. The only thing I might consider would be the walnut Dalton on Dainite, but I can't really justify anything else.

There has been Kenwood in burgundy shell in 9d for over a year now. $299. I bought a pair and they came in a beautiful light burgundy

Thanks.

 

My office is real casual so I have been experimenting with some colored laces to have a little fun.

 

I notice that women really pick up on the shoes and the colored laces the most.

Last time around, they actually had one shoe in each color already made, at least at the Chicago - Michigan Avenue store.  I think most major stores will likely have one pair in each color so you can see what it looks like.

Just received my new Walnut McAllisters today. I couldn't wait until the next Walnut Wingtip Wednesday to show them off. Slowly becoming a filthy barn weasel.

They couldn't even drop the Indy line to 299?  What a load of s**t.

Thinking of picking up a suede Strand during the current sale period. Anyone have a loden Strand? Trying to decide between the snuff and the loden. Thanks.
