    I just did my wire transfer for my second set of orders, I'll let you know how long Rezso says it will take.

    Thanks everyone!

    Jubei: These are standard leather finish yes, I polished them myself. Don't think Italian polish go very well with their museum calf.

    Wurger: I think single Dainite-soles are very underrated. I definitely prefer it in most cases, also for boots, since the shoe gets more elegant and more comfortable IMO, but still can be worn pretty much all winter here in the southern parts of Sweden.
    I've polished them with neutral cream and polish, except on the toe cap where I also used some black, so haven't changed the color that much overall. But the glare might make it less prominent in some pics.

    About five weeks by my recent experience - slightly quicker than ordering Meerming from stock!

    Direct from VASS is evidently a bit quicker for MTO. So it makes sense that proxy will take a bit longer.

    Man, i am so looking forward to my first pair. I have a feeling it will be a Pandora's box for me... :nodding:

    RogerP, heel grips would surely fill those gaps on your pair and make them as comfortable as they are smart.

    ^The instep looks like it fits well, so I don't think he'd have a problem with heel slip. Heel grips are pretty ineffective too, in my opinion, as they push your foot out of the heelcup and rub off with repeated wear.

    Thanks guys. The shoes actually fit fine in the heel - slip is not an issue when walking. In my favored shoe-shot pose I am leaning well forward to get a shot with the camera facing back toward the shoes - this unnatural (and no doubt creepy to my neighbors) posture kind of crams my feet forward into the shoe.

    Excellent choice of colour that oiled green calf. Great patina.

    Fascinating colour. A lot of wrinkling - did you have to size up for U last by any chance?

    What polish did you use? I have a 2 eye derby in oil green and it doesnt look much like that.

    Apparently its box calf that doesnt behave like crust, which is easier to attempt patina colours on.
