Black shell with natural outsole would be my dream. I think I saw it on Leathsoul's blog. 


No offense to you my friend, but I MUCH prefer not to have the natural welt on any of my shell shoes or boots (makes them much too casual for my liking).  I do have the 403 (Indy) but after a bunch of wear the natural welt turns darker with some contact with dirt.

I almost pulled the trigger on the Natty chrmxl LWB with natural welt before I found it with the mid-tan antique welt and edge.  Very happy I waited!

But, to each his own...

Black with natural welt has always been a head scratcher to me. There are certain combinations of leather color and welt that I don't care for (but that I still understand); however, the black/natural welt combo is one I simply do not understand. It seems confused. confused.gif But obviously others see it differently ....

I'm not a huge color 8/antique edge guy, but those boots make a pretty compelling argument. nod[1].gif

Oh damn, nice!  Who wore it better?  I missed on your Color 8 combo (mine is Ravello LWB and Color 2 wallet).

Ha! Ravello LHS with Ashland Whiskey (very close), and matching King. Also have a #2 wallet that matches my Wolverine 721's
