The sun is hitting them directly so the actually color is slightly darker. I post processed a touch to show the leather.
WOW! Great boots. Fantastic watch!
OK, Update on the crepe soles. These are some great wingtips I wear a lot in the rain and snow. I have a lot of miles on these and I see what the earlier posts were talking about.
Uppers look great. Maybe better than new and I scraped the toe bad on one of these:
The bottoms showing the leather. The pictures make it look worse than in person. This does not really bother me but I thought I would post for the community.
Though crepe is comfortable I really do not see me getting any more crepe soles. Not because of this but because I find the bottoms always look dirty. This is a pair of shoes that has never fitted me properly. I believe they are Grant last and the left shoe fits great. The right shoe scrunches my little toe. I have found a couple of pairs of socks that work great and make it hardly noticeable.
If I get them resoled by Alden I will see if they can do anything about that.
Is it possible to get crepe soled shoes resoled with a commando sole? I will probably have the leather toes replaced before I resole the shoe but I am curious.
