    Most are too pointy and sleek for my taste but I guess that lovers of G&G Deco would find them very attractive

    The gold standard for green shoes is still Spoo's G&G

    The racing green Savoys? Quite a few of us picked those up.

    Those ones. I liked them so much that I saved the photo to potentially emulate.

    Nice shoes, I had a chance to see them ate Leffot and my daughter was like, "those are amazing."

    Thanks much. I visit Leffot a bit too often haha. But Steven's selection is really, really quite magnificent.

    The huge blank vamp space is more pronounced on real feet than on shoe trees...

    That relatively empty vamp space is certainly pronounced. I wasn't sure what to make of it the first time I saw it, given the usual wingtip models I've seen... but overall I felt the shoe was crafted really well and somehow it worked for me.
