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?

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

It is completely fine for summer, I don't see why it isn't. Suede is wonderful and adds texture. The snuff color is amazing in person and it pairs well with just about everything and certainly leans on the more casual side.

I always thought the NST was based off of something that was popular in Norway, but I am just going off of the name.

Quoddy has some mocs that have actual baseball-style stitching on them:

I was tempted by the snuff suede LWB, but when i saw pics of the model the vendor had, they were A LOT lighter than i was hoping. They looked almost yellow/goldish, so I passed. The snuff suede shortwing from j gilbert on plaza looks nice, and is exclusive to them.

In Quantum of Solace Daniel Craig wore a dark brown chukka for most of the move, in the desert.
