Bestiff, what do you mean by slide your feet when walking? Is the foot shifting positions as you walk

Haha, Namor! That is a comment I made in jest to BeSpiff a couple weeks ago when I think someone asked about the lack of creases in one of his pairs of shoes. I commented that his shoes don't crease because he slides his feet when walking so his feet don't bend!

Does anyone have recent "in the wild" pics of Color 8 hand stitched loafers on Grant last. Saw some stock photos on the Alden NY site but would love to see real life pics.

I used this one from Woly.

That pic was taken in very bright daylight.

After i sprayed it went from tan to a more of a brown shade.

I use AE's suede spray and there was no change in color.  When first applied it looks darker bc they are wet.  But after a couple of minutes of drying, they look the same as new.  Maybe it's your product??

I had the same experience with the Saphir spray.  No color change

tifosi, nice shot of your new babies. Do I detect the slightest hint of a roll developing?

You sure do! I love the way the shell gets light in the creases. Really enjoying these today.

^^tifosi that antique edge is killer! Some orange or light pink laces would bring that edge out even more :decisions:

Looks good! Maybe it's the edge, but those are almost cigar-like.

^ Antique edge does seen to have that effect in certain light, bringing out the dark brown color in the shell more.
