Nomination #1:
Suede Butterfly loafers from Nicholas Templeman.

Suede Butterfly loafers from Nicholas Templeman. I've been looking forward to these since the on welt fitting. Fit is great. Very happy with this pair.












Nomination #2:
Norwegian Strapboots for Jun Kuwana by Fosters


Anyone have thoughts on whether it's a good idea to commission true-blue, casual shoes through a bespoke shoemaker? Meaning something that you'd wear with raw denim jeans and a leather jacket, but commissioned through someone who typically makes dress shoes.

I realize on face value this seems like a bad idea, but I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts about it -- or ideally, even photos of good examples.

I've been thinking about getting a casual boot. Maybe something like this, which which was posted on Cobbler's Web's Instagram



Except, since I'll only be wearing these with jeans and maybe a leather jacket, I would want the last to be much, much rounder/ more casual.

Anyway, is this is a bad idea? Better to stick to dress shoes when going through a dress shoe maker?

Great pics in this thread so far. Keep them coming!!
@RogerP you have some personal winners. I can pick almost any of your stair shots and nominate them. Here is one.
Responding over here as it is Vass-specific. Pics below. As I said, they are a very dark green/black.

I'd like to nominate @BenLeaman for his killer Galway pic.
Finally getting around to applying some Nano Protector onto my new coffee suede Galways from Leffot. I've owned these for too long without yet wearing them. Happy New Years gentlemen.

@Synthese what ever happened to this?
It's comin'. Turns out @LA Guy and I may have (surprise, surprise) stretched ourselves a bit thin over the past few weeks, so it's on the late side. Always learning, you know?
