people do this all the time, if you report them, they are banned, pretty simple

I'm interested in getting a pair of Indys and was wondering if chromexcel is more prone to creasing than calf. Can anyone chime in on this? Oddly I've three different pairs of the Wolverine 1000 Mile boot and each one has a different degree of creasing to them (they're all CXL), from really bad to non existent. I'm not really sure what determines the extent of creasing.

Just so that it's not spreading around more, I am firm believer that oxfords are not necessarily equal to balmorals. Balmorals are a specific type of oxford.

Didn't know that. I've done it once or twice myself but won't do it again. Thanks for the heads up

So (friendly question...), what makes a shoe genus oxford, species balmoral?

I believe an Oxford is more formal and traditionally has a sweeping (similar to a longwing) design. On my phone right now but will try to find a pick later. Balmoral and blucher are just descriptions of the closure (I think).

This is a good post explaining it:

I've noticed that you rarely see balmoral shoes though. You often see them as boots, which I think the original design came from.

Other way around, but yes you're headed in the right direction.

Interesting. I see the difference. Thanks.

Wondering if anyone has interest in a dark brown suede cap toe boot on the Barrie last double oak leather soles.  The make-up below was from Moulded Shoe a few years ago style #4081.  I think if enough people are interested they may put another order in.

They can add a commando at the store, with Alden factory parts.
