I want to pick up a pair of snuff shoes but can't decide on which one,

Ptb on Barrie or Chukka on Leydon?


Suggestions?

This is indeed the only logical thing to do.

Good read, thanks for posting. Green suede? Sounds intriguing. I also like the sound of more unlined CXL models being released. Notice, however, that he didn't mention any new cordovan models in the pipeline.

You can still wear your boots, even in the desert.  Personal choice.  I favor my unlined makeups but work in a boot at least once a week.

Closet now appears to need more shoes...

Spot on.  I have two pairs of natty cxl (as described in my sig).  One pair I've been wearing.  One has been in the box since purchase.  I was startled by the change in color but not displeased at all.  I've used Venetian shoe cream maybe a handful of times.

Get yourself some Saphir Renovateur, and use it sparingly.

Also of note: Natural CXL will always darken over time with wear and subsequent care. Expect this. Embrace it. Meltonian will speed up this process significantly and turn the boots quickly to a more golden tone, away from the grey/beige they start out. A good, clean, stiff brush is your best friend.

This is an evolution of my NatCXL Indys using only Meltonian, before springing for Saphir at the advice of board-knowledge.

Ex.

...but when done correctly, they are tough to compete with.

Tassels are classy. My personal favorite is probably my black shell alden for bb tassels.

Snuff suede chukka FTW!

Then tan suede penny loafer.

That's what I did.

does the flex welt sole last as long as a single leather sole? it seems thinner.
