    Sorry dude. Will let you know tomorrow, but Laney said they looked perfect, except that one shoe was slightly lighter than the other.

    It looks like your whole foot could use a little extra volume, not just the instep. Try a thin insole or sockliner. That's what I use for my dundees!

    As a "P.S." to my recent post about split-toes, I thought I would share this double monk example from Bruno Magli. All in all, I think it works pretty well. Too bad they do not fit or I would totally rock them for a while. 10.5 M in case you need to know.

    When I asked if this was a first, I was referring to the fact that you shared a picture of your shoes. I don't ever remember that from you, and then you shared two in a row. WHOA... pace yourself!

    I'll get the quality of these. But I just have a natural instinctual crnge when I see these, as well as any split that goes up much further than an couple inches in the toes. I just can't help it, but not for me.

    The Newberg looks very much like something from the likes of Original Penguin. Just awful. These would be littering BCF's all over the country if BCF were still getting AEs.

    I've always preferred the Santa Mok to the Jingle Bell, but I'm more of an Arbor Day guy.

    Wore my Leeds 2.0 today and wow, this Double Butyl sole takes a long time to gain traction. After 7 or 8 wears they are still quite slick. But these shoes are going to be awesome when I replace it with a single sole. I realize a lot of people on here like the double sole better, but it has its disadvantages.

    New shoe arriving from ebay tomorrow. Found a nice long ago discontinued style and I'm trying a new size that might not work. I'll post a pic when it arrives, and if it's too narrow for me, I'm going to put up a classified on here. It's a really nice shoe I got very cheap.

    I haven't actually seen those - very cool!

    Not sure that closure would work for me...

    Do I need to repost Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman playing the bongos again?

    If you wander over to the Rock Your Socks thread, they'd say you aren't even trying. Check out this post: post #23341 then scroll on down the rest of the page. [​IMG]

    I agree. Way off, IMO.
