Thank you sir!
My answer to "what should I wear with the black chinos that I have to wear today?"
The black grain Athens.
I have never worn these for more than a couple of hours at a time. The left shoe crowds/pinches my toes, so I was hesitant about this choice. Hopefully today will bring about a little stretching.
Really? My v-treads seem to be indestructible.
Nice vintage pair! An old pair for me today as well: Fifth Ave in "Antique Burgundy" made from 88-95 that I rescued from a Goodwill a year or so ago. I've had them resoled but the leather has seen better days...
Mine feel fairly robust as well. Put the point of a Topy is that once it's worn down, you replace it so the original leather sole stays intact underneath. So in practical usage, a topied sole will most likely extend the life of your sole quite a bit.
Ascher out in the wild today. Not sure if this is the sexiest shoe color or THEE sexiest shoe color...
Newly polished 5th Avenues
Chili Carlyles today, a fine recommendation from my local store in Scottsdale. Truly enjoying the rich color.
For me it's a toss up. If they can't sand down the leather sole to install the v-tread/Topy flush, then I would be hesitant for them to re-welt the shoe, since you can only do it a finite amount of times. Assuming they need to undo the leather sole from the welt.
Chili Fifth Aves, with coffee and watch:
You hit the trifecta, bro!
If those were shell, this thread would explode.
5th Aves don't get enough love here
Daltons today. Some seriously bright sun this morning, so the color is much more orange than normal.
