Many have discussed this. Black (in shoes and suits) is commonly mistaken to be the most formal and desired of colors. In reality other colors, like brown and walnut, are more versatile and therefore a more ideal option.

Ya bro, I posted pics on the previous page:
Dope pics man, thanks. I'm guessing you probably haven't worn them in any sort of ice/snow yet tho? They look awesome but I do wonder how they perform when it's -25 and I'm walking through 2 feet of white...
red wing 6 inch moc toe boots @ Nordstrom online only $149 (retail $250) free shipping
the tan boots also $149 ($249 retail)
Is this like an official thread (or should we make one?)
Anyways, figured I would show some of my RWs. I love the made in minnesota gear
Ignore the stupid clarks. Beckmans in Cherry, IRs in Amber, Plain toe Boomers, Captain Stabbin, Chukka briar oil slick
The old and new Chukkas. A late 80's early 90's (most likely the 90's production time) chukka and the new model briar oil slick
I have a couple other pairs I do not have pictures of
I get plenty of traction with Beckmans in the winter. I wore the 9010 as my main non-blizzard boot last year.
The Beckmans: I wouldn't say they are more narrow though, just equal in width. My foot overhangs about equal on each.
EDIT: The moc toe beckmans are on the 23 last (see my reference above) and the plain toe are on the 8 last which is the same as the IR so sizing should be the same for plain toe.

i ordered in a pair of postman 101s (the oxfords) and i'm gonna pick them up today at a local red wings
anyone have experience with these/the chukkas? worried they'll be slippery-- i've seen a lot of people put vibram soles on them. just wondering if i should do the same
i'm usually a size 9.5 for most brands, but for my iron rangers and postmans i'm a 9D if anyone is on the fence about sizing.
