It's actually not a crepe sole -- regular leather outsole. I got them at Alden of SF -- they only have the picture of the natural CXL on their website, but the navy look pretty damn sexy in person. They're being shipped to me and get here on Weds... can't wait.

No. #8 for its color and versatility compared to the other two.

You have a choice between Barrie or Aberdeen. The Shoe Mart has the NST shoe in Aberdeen in stock right now and Leather Sole has it in Barrie, both Color 8. 

 

I'm trying to decide between the 2 myself.

The Shoe Mart also has it in Cigar and Whiskey on the Barrie in select sizes...

I own or have owned NSTs on both lasts (and Plaza), and there really is no right or wrong answer between the two, but over time I have grown more fond of the Aberdeen.

AE cloths are on sale now for $1.70. I think they're pretty good. I use them a lot; old t-shirt to apply and AE polishing cloths to wipe and buff.

Looks nice. Are NSTs supposed to remind me of a baseball? The stitching does.

Color 8.

BTW, is snuff suede suitable for summer? Or is it more of a fall color? 

post #49095 of 92421
BeSpiffington - gonna be completely honest. 975's are somewhat widely available and snuff suede isn't. I love my snuff suede LWBs and everyone compliments them all the time - sad they don't realize shell is a much more desirable material huh? So yeah, I'd go snuff first and eventually buy some shell smile.gif
