finally had a decent (sunny) day out..
decided to keep these, even though some finish work on both front ends leaves a little to be desired
do you have a closer-up shot showing the finishing issue/concern? From here they look stellar..post #106263 of 1224163/17/15 at 3:06pmpost #106264 of 1224163/17/15 at 3:13pmpost #106265 of 1224163/17/15 at 3:16pmpost #106266 of 1224163/17/15 at 4:45pmQuote:
That was my recommendation as well as then you can control the color. But my secondary recommendation is to use the neutral AE edge trim. I recommend against using chili myself.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my recent 975 purchase. I decided to keep them and take the discount, I will work on evening them out but for now I had to put them on my feet where they belong. Maiden voyage time is the only time I get to photograph shoes on my feet looking like Mikes.
Office lighting you are hard pressed to tell the color difference, in natural light it shows but will even out soon enough.

Looking nice and clean! ;-)
Seriously, if only!Quote:
Glad you kept them, they are perfection.post #106267 of 1224163/17/15 at 4:46pmpost #106268 of 1224163/17/15 at 5:08pmpost #106269 of 1224163/17/15 at 5:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by Shawnc
I know I'm spending too much time on this site when I look at the sole of a shoe and get excited, but this looks really intriguing. I always topy my leather-soled shoes and have contemplated the integrated metal toe tap. I've got two pretty good cobblers here in downtown Pgh but neither has suggested anything like this. I think I'm going to show them this pic and get their thoughts.
One thing to keep in the back of your head while deciding...
Do you wear your shoes inside the house and do you have hardwood flooring?
A good friend of mine would put a "yes" in the check boxes for both questions. In addition, he has a 4 year old daughter. One night of dancing to Frozen with her in the living room and he now has something else, a ruined floor.
Metal toes aren't bad, in fact I find them to be pretty damn cool, but I think you need to be conscious of the soles afterwards.
Just my friendly anecdotal advice.post #106270 of 1224163/17/15 at 5:54pmpost #106271 of 1224163/17/15 at 5:58pmpost #106272 of 1224163/17/15 at 6:18pmpost #106273 of 1224163/17/15 at 6:45pmpost #106274 of 1224163/17/15 at 6:45pmpost #106275 of 1224163/17/15 at 6:58pm
