Color 4 Wingtips, both in inside and outside light (though a cloudy day). Sorry the outside shot is a bit blurry.

Loving the #4 shots guys.

 

Ravello Thursday for me

I have a pair of Indy 405 Jcrew make up and also the Jcrew Alden Perforated Captoe in Color 8.

Just in case I run into a sale... what would be a good next pair?

I was thinking a Plain Toe Blucher or Longwing Blucher or LHS.

does anyone wear their LHS sockless?

All must haves and yes, plenty go sockless

I think if J crew ever accidently does the 30% off (think it will be for a long while), I will get their cap toes and sell my plain shoemart cap toes.

Does the alden leather get stinky after a while wearing sockless? My cavnas shoes I go sockless are smelly.

I have the odor eaters insoles for my Tod's driving loafers that I wear sockless.  They have active carbon in them, and are pretty thin.  They help absorb a lot of the moisture.  I also don't wear them every day.

 

Just a thought.

 

I bet any shoe you wear sockless everyday will get funky.  The smelly foot bacteria thrives in moist environments.

 

Also, you could consider those "loafer socks"

I never truly go sockless, but instead use "no show" loafer socks.

It's hard deciding on colors I guess is my dilemma.

whiskey/ravello/cigar PTB
color8/whiskey/ravello/cigar LHS

I can almost guarantee that's not going to come out.  You can darken the rest of the leather to match though.

Basically any leather shoe could have smell issues if you wear them sockless - particularly heavier, lined shoes (like the normal LHS)

I throw Gold Bond in loafers or shoes I go sockless in. Works pretty well for me.
