    For DOAK you get a range of recommendations from neutral, to medium brom, and even dark brown with black for the toe. it kind of depends on the shade you want to have your shoes take. I would recommend medium brown.

    Make sure your Danskos are a bit looser than you would get dress shoes. They are designed to have some heel slip as you walk and force your toes to grip onto the forefoot as you step, as your foot would when you normally walk.

    On my screen and phone they do not look burgundy. They look very much brown with some reddish undertones. StC only has one kind of Russian Calf but of course colour may vary between batches.

    A good idea. I was hoping to participate or organise some kind of event in the U.S. and/or Hong Kong and Singapore at some point.

    Thanks Leaves, just wanted to be sure they were truly a darker brown, as my other pair are a light brown.

    Many thanks to the Skoak folks (@Leaves and @Skoaktiebolaget) for the great service and fast delivery on these Galways. Brown Utah calf with mink suede uppers. 82E Last with Dainite soles.

    I finally got a chance to take some photos. I was a little nervous on how these would turn out, but I'm very happy with the results! Now if Fall/Winter would just get here a little faster (plus, that would mean the Doak Nevis would be ready, too!).

    Nicely done, I really like the Utah calf leathers.

    Thanks. I particularly like the subtly of the antiquing on the toes that EG does with the Utah calf. Certainly it's not as pronounced as some of the calf leathers, but I think the subtly is a nice change of pace.

    I love them! The subtlety of the Utah calf makes a huge difference.

    Is the Utah leather similar to the Russian reindeer calf in terms of texture and look?
