Wow! Great pics. These have been sitting in my closet. Time to get them out for some wear!

My pair of van lasted suede loafers do not fit anything like barrie...not even close..shorter and more narrow on the van for me

This is my experience as well. I have suede in both the LWB and LHS in the same size. Fit is not even close.

Those pictures are amazing. Love the life in those. If someone did that tan ct again I'd buy it tomorrow. I wish there were more smooth calf offerings besides CXL. I'm also just bitter about not getting on the tan cc boot at BM.

Ha Ha .. Just noticed the socks are shot... Any ideas on good Cotton Thin Socks .. I live in AZ wool isn't much of an option...

I think you might be surprised at an ultra light merino wool sock. It wicks and keeps cool. Cotton holds more moisture and is hotter in my experience.

Thanks, that will be a challenge in my house but I am willing to try.

I LOVE smartwool socks. Not for their look, though that is fine, but for their functionality and durability.

 

My feet survived a few years worth of Mongolian winter (wearing exclusively dress shoes (never boots) and walking a minimum of 5 miles a day) almost exclusively because of smartwool socks (as well as their thermals which I also love). I only had 4 pair of them and they all lasted me my entire time in Mongolia. My shoes had holes all over them by the end (they didn't have shoes in my size in Mongolia) but those socks kept my feet warm.

Thanks for the info - will be shopping for some today - I would have thought I had a better shot of predicting the lottery numbers than ever predicting that I would be having a sock conversation with someone who lived in Mongolia! ..... that is one hell of a testament - Smartwool should use that in their advertising.
