My first dance with the Hampton last, and dare I speak too soon, but I'm really liking it.

Captoe in color King. Maiden voyage.

Convince me in keeping these Shoemart irregulars?

 

Picked these calf Aldens recently.  What I like:  chocolate color, barrie last/fit great, could be waterlock sole (?), super soft leather, would be a good rainy day shoe (I’m afraid to wear shell when there’s a threat of rain).

 

Negs:  metal eyelets more of a casual shoe (not for suits?), have 2 other brown/blucher captoes (1 is a 2160 shell), Barrie last may look a little clunky.

What do all you think?

9015 is spectacular!  Even better with bar lacing.  That is one hell of a shine you are displaying.  Here is my best, however, it looks as though you've got me beat

Honestly, I just don't like them.  The eyelets and grain of the leather just look cheapish to me.

Personally, I wouldn't add it as a third brown shoe just to add antoher shoe. I would, however, wear it as a bad weather shoe and put on a Danite sole when the current sole wears out.

Congrats Sazon. Your 9015s are very classy. These shoes are awesome in black too. If you ever consider a black dress shoe, the 9016 should top the list. wear in good health my friend

Oh lord..  Great looking!

Have any of you had to move a whole size down when buying the Barrie last? I went a half size down on my Indy and longwings but after a year they just seem too wide.
I'm looking at the navy longwings with brick soul. They look pretty fun and durable.

Thank you.

 

For some reason, the pics I post usually go without compliment.  However, this recycled pic always receives praise.

 

I must concede that because of the lighting or whatever reason, Sazon's pic exhibits superior depth of shine.

Down .5 and 1 width is the only thing that will work for me.  Down a whole size was still too wide when I tried it.
