    Well, i bought a pair of Bourbon Strands on the Shoebank and they will be returned. The right shoe has some awful striping on them. The rest of the shoe is flawless, less the discoloration on shoe due to the leather color consistency not being there. I'd love to work on them and get them looking wearable, but i don't want to make it worse and not be able to return them.

    I have bourbon shoe polish, but it in no way looks like it would be dark enough to fix the problem. Imagine a bourbon pair of Stands with the right foot area (spot right before the cap toe) being nearly entirely Walnut color with a hint of bourbon striping. That's what they look like. Even at the price point of $177, which is a steal for Stands, i doubt i'd ever feel comfortable wearing them to work or out at night.

    I pulled the trigger on a clearance walnut Dalton pair, as well. If they are keepers, I plan on using dark chili cream to darken them a little. I hear you on the squeaky sound. In fact, I will be returning a pair of firsts in dark chili because of the same issue. I wore them on carpet around the house and the noise just hasn't decreased. I can tolerate/work with little squeaking, but when it's so loud that you will be turnin every head when walking by, I am not sure it is worth the gamble.

    I know loafers aren't too popular here, but it is the Nashua for Friday

    I've always admired your cordovan collection (specially green and navy), sorry to hear that you'll be selling most of those. More than that, I am frustrated that I am 10E and can't grab any of these from you.
    Good luck

    Suede strands on a Friday. With socks. Is it bad I want to wear no shows with every shoe now? Also, I really need to see the sun soon...these HD cameras are bad for my health...

    Thanks, they are some of the better socks I have. Thick and very sturdy wearing the grey ones today.

    Here is the designer. [​IMG]

    Ugh, your picture is giving me an urge to pick these up. Do they run true to size with calf strands?

    @gabru thank you. It's certainly disappointing and a big financial hit. Also the fact that I was fitted for 6.5E for the strand and pa by AE at two different stores initially really disappoint me.

    I wear 9d in both suede strands and my regular ones (oxblood.) No fit issues at all. Both are awesome. And is it obvious I tout oxblood yet?
