    Lowa is nice and they're pretty popular around the hiking crowds, but Hanwag is where it's at! I had a set of Lowas and I didn't think it could get any better, but Hanwags blow them out of the water.

    Hehe. I own Hanwags and Meindls; equally ugly and equally practical.

    Are those a weird (tiny) size, or are the proportions off, or am I losing my mind? (I say this as someone with a small shoe size.) They look like booties to me: [​IMG][​IMG]

    Not my cup of tea.

    A Budapester (am I calling this correctly?) does not seem, to me, the right shape to go with suede.

    My ideal suede shapes are sleek/chiseled look.


    I like them quite a bit. But then, I like Budapester lasts in general.

    They are 8.5E on barrie last - so equal to 9E. There is some distortion in the pic, I resized it wrong.

    Martegani suede wingtips with Dainite soles bought more than a year ago from Ron on ebay [​IMG] A friend asked me to recommend him a similar pair for a decent price. Found this pair of Boss Black, are they crap quality? [​IMG]

    I bought these Heschung waterproof suede shoes with Dainite-like soles in Paris at the beginning of a month long trip around Europe in December 2005. I walked everywhere in them. These were the most comfortable shoes imaginable. I am a big fan of rubber soles and can say that dark suede can stand up to rain and snow with no problem.

    I think these are the ideal blend of comfort with classic style for a jacket and tie yet casual enough for everyday wear and jeans. I want another pair!

    Thank you [​IMG]

    The dk brown derbies? They're C&J Worcester with a 'Micro' (?) rubber sole on the 341 last. For some reason they're slightly longer than my other shoes on the same last in the same size (Bradford and Westfield).

    I also tried to order the Dartmouth in dk brown suede, which is very similar but with a leather sole and on - IMO - one of C&J's best lasts: 318 (I have it in black calf). Unfortunately Pediwear don't have it anymore and I haven't seen it in catalogues for the last couple of seasons.

    Thanks! I dig the simplicity. I used to have a pair of JL Pierson's just like them, but had to sell for fit issues.

    Really like both. I have a Chiltern in snuff on my way from Bodiley's. Was worried about the blobby shape but yours look very nice.
