    Very Nice! Could you describe how the sizing compares the MacNeil? If I'm a 10.5 B in the MacNeil, would you recommend staying with the same size in vintage Florsheim?

    Thanks!

    I like. Would prefer a split toe, but I could see myself in those.

    I think the size is remarkably similar between the two. A previous pair of MacNeils were tight across the vamp of my right foot and this pair felt exactly the same. I normally have shoes stretched a bit and I did so with the Florsheim last night with my handy vamp stretcher. Now they fit very nicely. I would go with the 10.5B if you were considering a pair.

    Not to mention that 90% of the black square toed cheap shoes worn by the masses are bicycle toe.

    In the market for an inexpensive pair of boots for foul weather duty. I assumed I'd be getting some cheap Target chukkas, but at $107 Freiburg seconds seem like a decent option.

    Agree / disagree?

    I have always thought they were hideous and in abundance. Didn't realize it was an universally hated style.

    I'm looking forward to seeing a navy Cornwalis.
    I had hoped to get a navy Weybridge before the MTO program was cancelled.

    If they had rubber on the soles I would totally agree. If your talking REALLY foul weather there is the Sturgis at $167 (1st) $127 (2nd), but at that point, I would just get a Redwing Beckman 2nd.

    Ugh! Whenever I see the ones you mentioned, I think "What is it with these people and ducks."

    Not terrible weather, just the long walk from the parking lot to the office door in a Florida storm. It's usually enough for me to get the soles and uppers of my shoes good and wet. So far I haven't done any lasting damage, but it'd be nice not to worry at all.

    I believe the Freiburgs have a v-tread sole.

    Hmm blue dress shoes... Would that be too tacky? Wouldn't mind the Cornwallis in blue

    So as I'm about to put on my third different pair of shoes in the same day, I was wondering, what's the most pair of shoes you have worn in a day? I'm going on pair at work (McCalister), gym (boat shoes), after gym (different boat shoes), and if I go out tonight it'll be a fourth pair. Mini hurricane winds and the fact I work tomorrow will probably keep me at 3 pairs today.
