Look great.

 
Barrie / Barrie / Grant ? Captoe looks like a w/Commando ... so maybe plaza.  The different ways the Plaza toe looks in different photos is threatening to bring on a seizure.  :crazy:
 
The wingtip looks like a larger width for some reason.  Beautiful colouring on all! The subtle differences is welt/edging is sublime.

I don't have a good reason, but I struggle with black shoes.
I'm sure the day will come when I "turn to the dark side"
I would buy leather soul's black shell shortwings if they had leffot's red lining, and if they weren't completely sold out.

That's a really nice family you've got there rydenfan. The color 8 wingtips with light antique edging are my favorite boots I've seen on this site. Might I ask where you got these?

Thanks. They were a LS makeup I believe for the Beverly Hills store opening about a year and a half ago. They remain my most comfortable pair, I think in part to the waterloc sole

This absolutely sums up my feelings on the topic. I own a couple of pairs of black shoes and I never seem to wear them. Not that I don't like them, I just seem to like all of my other colors better. For someone who likes black shoes to indicate that black shell is meh, well that is just baffling to me.

Black shell just looks plasticky. I've seen some exceptions (e.g. Leffot naval boots) but they tend not to convey that depth that the various shades of brown shells can display.

+1 except my 20's were filled with big, chunky, square toe Ken Cole monstrosities.

You're not trying to convince yourself hard enough.
I'm sure you can rationalize it if you try harder.

Beautiful collection! One cannot have too many #8 boots! I wish these weren't so impossible to find.
