I ordered a $280. one because I like Walnut. They look like beautiful pieces.  Thanks for the heads up.

Alcibiades, thank you for posting these. I now feel like I'm in good company. I find the navy leffot cxl wtbs to be one of the cushiest pairs I own. They even get comments from patients on days I'm dressing casually. Hope you're enjoying them!

Yes, thy are the Leffot version. They can look quite dark in certain lighting. I think the darkness is good as they can stand up to raw indigo denim well. This is indeed a great casual boot - man cannot live on cordovan alone

They are very comfortable. Honestly I misjudged Leffot's navy Alden offerings (suede and chromexcel) due to the heavy contrast between the soles and such. However, they are casual shoes, and the work great in casual settings. I am seriously considering preordering their navy suedes.

Tassels for a Sunday morning at the office. I haven't gotten as much wear out of these as I would like. Trying to reinstate them into the rotation, but they seem to straddle the line between casual and dressy in an awkward sort of way. I think the natty cxl is casual, while the tassel is inherently dressy.

Now there is something you don't see everyday!.  Thanks for sharing.  I think you are wearing them in the appropriate context.  That is the thing about tassel loafers.  They can be somewhat dressy to somewhat casual, but neither extreme.  The will move more towards the casual end of the spectrum as they acquire "character" with age.  Love the safe in the background.  (I can't blame you, I would keep those puppies locked up as well)

Ha! Perhaps I should, though that is not a shoe safe. There certainly are members here more deserving of a shoe safe. No shell yet... I've only bought Aldens on sales

For $650+ for a pair of shells @ retail, I can't accuse you of being unreasonable.  I'd have an easier time calling myself unreasonable for having as many pairs of such shoes as I do.

I didn't even know such a thing exists. I purchased them with the expectation that the color would mirror the calf version. As you can see in the shot, they do not. I'm hesitant to send them back because it does seem to be a unique color. I'm just curious if your walnut shells are the same color as mine.



Thanks.

It's difficult to tell because of lighting.  Here are pics of mine...

 

Mine doesn't seem as rich in color as yours, but the lighting may have an impact.  I also haven't brushed or cleaned them up yet.  With the summer heat and humidity still here in the South, I haven't touched or worn mine yet.
