Thanks! Just a wet rag, brush, and microfiber cloth. Some Saphir neutral cordovan cream about twice a year.

Here's another pic in indoor lighting. This is closer to the IRL color.


Ahhhhhh cordovan. For some reason I thought it was calf and was like wow it looks like cordovan. Great looking shoes

Mora Monk-strap Monday

My Ashtons get very little attention as they are overshadowed by their shell and leather soled cousins in the shoe storage bag. Yesterday was the first time they were worn in months. Amazingly, we received “rain” in southern California last night and the rubber soled Ashtons cried “Put me in again coach, let me play.” So, braving the 0.04 inches of moisture that fell, we both bravely ventured into the "storm."

Can anyone tell me which shoe this is pictured here and what color? It shows up as a user picture under Delray but it looks like it may be a different shoe entirely.

Poron? You sure? The Barletts I had for a brief period of time didn't have poron, nor have any of the other indy line shoes I've had/tried.

The above she'll Kenilworths have Indy detailing. The insole is definitely leather, with a layer of padding on top.

That's a sweet shade of brown shell there, buddy.

 

Went with the burgundy shell Daltons 2day. (Looks like I'm levitating, but my feet ARE dangling while sitting, ha.)

Black PAs are the beginning of my slippery slope. RDA Oxblood fifth aves should arrive on Wed.

DIY Vibram dress half sole (followed instructions on halfsoles.com)



Only marginally adds to the profile. There was initially some discoloration due to glue squeeze out but edge dressing fixed that.

Looks to me like a chili grain Bradley.

Looks like you have the same office carpet as both Naspratt and me.

Mine definitely have padding under the insoles, which as I recall the SA said was a layer of poron over the corkbed. If not poron it's foam of some kind, and seems standard in the current Indys. My Jefferson 2.0s have it too.

These look fantastic. Great depth in color for a darker shade of brown. IMO, chili or brown edges look so much nicer than black/dark brown. Speaking of, just might pull out my bourbon calf kennies this week.
