While I know chili "goes" with navy, it still looks odd to me. Trying to break the black shoe rut. Yes, the "V" is on the wide side, but there is nothing to be done about it and the remainder of the shoe fits great.

The 7D was super large but I wasn't sure whether I would need a 7B or 6.5D. The 201 is certainly "interesting" - as someone with high arches the balmorals fit better but with the bluchers I'm overloaded with extra volume.

 

My mistake...it was the Flatiron that I saw with only those two sizes left. And you are right, when I choose 6.5, only E is available.

 

Sorry for getting your hopes up.

The v-gap really doesn't bother me the way it does some here, but I gotta say, it doesn't bother me at all with the bar lacing you have here. Others will disagree, I'm sure. That gap, with the bar lacing, on this particular shoe (because of the v-punches), looks down right sharp to me. Don't give it another thought.

I have never seen bourbon that color. Every time I saw it in person, it had a sickly greenish hue. I could never understand the love it got here. But that color? That color I dig.

I love mine in chili as well and I was considering a pair in walnut in the near future if a second sticks around in my size for a while. Was the only reason you didn't keep them because of the splotchiness? Do you have any pics?

Well, the spots of darker color didn't help, but I was always only planning on keeping one, and I prefer the chili color for both suits and odd jackets (don't tell anyone, but I would probably even wear them with dark jeans). Walnut for me is only for very light grey and mid to light blues, so it just isn't as versatile. Especially since I have both the Strawfut in brown/linen and the Boone in sand for linen/seersucker suits.
Haven't returned the walnut yet; I'll post pics tonight. They looked pretty great aside from the spotting on one shoe.

@Rubik1014 How could you do that to me 😃. Yeah I'm actually relieved - by my last count im up to 43 pairs, a sign I need to slow down.

Why slow down? Especially when a nice even number like 50 is so close!

 

I've been telling myself to slow down too. I have done a decent job tapping the breaks, but still have a few models on the wish list: Normandy (with actual contrast stitching), Cornwallis, and perhaps a casual suede loafer (like the sea island).

It would indeed! I'd love a bal version, which the Cornwallis should be (but isn't due to the dreadful 1943 last).

Speaking of suede loafers...
We'll, technically not suede, but wore my Addison loafers today. Went well with the hot and wet forecast.
post #808 of 17570
Yeah, that's right, these are awesome.

I don't think I have 43 pairs of anything!

I love that shoe for the exactly look that you are going for. How long have you had those / how many wears? All the eBay ones I see have me worried about how that nubuck (?) leather ages.
