Haha holy, didn't think it would be five of the same exact shoe. Doesn't make me feel as weird MTOing three strands in different colors.

The foo should not be used as a benchmark to make yourself feel less weird.

Quick question about the quality of the shell on your shoes - on mine, I am a bit disappointed by the quality of the shell itself.

Take a close look at yours on the left and right side of the vamp and let me know if you have any patches where the shell is "rough" - like the surface of an orange. I have a big spot on each shoe where the shell simply isn't smooth. It isn't on the vamp, so I shrugged it off, but for the price, I'm not thrilled about the quality in all honesty...

Cheers,
BN

I think JGilbert has done a 6 eyelet shell chukka on the plaza. A suede version was posted here recently.

I hated Foo's LWBs on the Plaza when that thread started, but I've warmed up to the look. I think a Grant lasted LWB is still my favorite.
post #78209 of 97099
that was also a great makeup. nearly got my hands on a pair through BB however never arrived. tts was a little big :/
post #78210 of 97099
A LWB on grant is something I'd like to see (and own).
