    I'm only going to comment on #1. I agree with you on the style. I have the Natural CXL Oak Street, and I like them so much better than the split-toe. I've gotten so many more compliments on them than I have on the GB Rush Streets, which are my personal favorites. The natural Oak Streets are making me want natural shell in everything, but the split-toe is not for me.

    I had to promise my wife I would not buy any more shoes in 2016. I told her stopping at 7 is fine (one for each day of the week). I used to laugh at people who bought lots of shoes and think they were nuts. It's a weird feeling when you're on the other side of what you mocked.

    Anyway, I bought the last 8D Clark they had in 1st quality. The 7.5 E's are still up there if anyone is interested.

    Maybe you can talk the wife into getting you a pair during the Father's Day sale.

    I kind of wish that I had bought a pair of these while they were still available.

    Thanks @Neo1 for your feedback. No hard feelings :)

    1) I have the LaSalle in 8d and I really don't like how it fits. I had tried the 108 in other lengths in D width but never found a good fit. Last week I had chance to try 9B LaSalle (I am 8.5C brannock) and it was much better. So the Mora and Clark Street might be a good fit. Hey, I am split toe type of guy and I like mom straps.

    2) The Cavanaugh I am thinking 9b, as well. The navy suede is going to be used with casual outfits, so I am pretty comfortable that I can make it work. 8.5D in Concord Ave was wide.

    3) I am going to try the Kenilworh or Lexington, even though I am pretty certain that they will not work. I don't do particularly well with calf leather styles on 65, but the McT and the BB suede wingtips in 8D worked. In calf leather, anything that fits well in the toe box/the ball of the foot, is too narrow everywhere else.

    4) I guess I am trying to find a replacement for my Norwich, and that's perhaps why I am gravitating towards the Franciscan. But, yeah, the Flatiron and Franciscan can be crossed off.

    Were they stone color? If I remember correctly, they were actually white.

    I wish I could take credit for it. I ran across it in an article a couple weeks ago. I've been holding on to it for an appropriate time to use.

    1. 1st ave on clearance in 9B, just because. Great choice.
    2. La Marche - here's your chance to try the Lexington out. Too big for me, but worth a shot.
    3. Rialto (8D) - really tough fit, but they're practically giving this away.
    4. Sanibel 1.0 - I actually like this a lot now.
    5. Madison Ave (9B) - I missed this. Kind of like the san Marco.
    6. Black Rutledge (9B) - you gotta try that.
    8. Lubbock (9B) - doh! Been trying to hunt one down forever [​IMG]. Hey, if you want another shot at the Norwich....
