    I'm with you, buddy. I'm even hesitant to wear walnut or whiskey. Feels like I'm wearing orange pumpkins on my feet.

    Thiat is why I guessed #2. When I read ruby, I didn't think #4 was red enough. But I do agree #4 is much more likely. I wonder if the stores will have some samlpe swatches.

    Interestingly, the break in period was pretty painful- conversely, the 65 last is comfortable out of the box for me. I like them, but what I'll probably eventually do is have them recrafted with either Dainite or a combo tap sole and use them as crappy weather shoes, then get black PA's or Exchange Place's as a not-crappy-weather shoe

    Scanning through the website, pretty disappointed with the pricing. The only thing I might consider would be the walnut Dalton on Dainite, but I can't really justify anything else.

    There has been Kenwood in burgundy shell in 9d for over a year now. $299. I bought a pair and they came in a beautiful light burgundy

    Thanks.

    My office is real casual so I have been experimenting with some colored laces to have a little fun.

    I notice that women really pick up on the shoes and the colored laces the most.

    Last time around, they actually had one shoe in each color already made, at least at the Chicago - Michigan Avenue store. I think most major stores will likely have one pair in each color so you can see what it looks like.

    Just received my new Walnut McAllisters today. I couldn't wait until the next Walnut Wingtip Wednesday to show them off. Slowly becoming a filthy barn weasel.

    They couldn't even drop the Indy line to 299? What a load of s**t.

    Thinking of picking up a suede Strand during the current sale period. Anyone have a loden Strand? Trying to decide between the snuff and the loden. Thanks.

    I'm actually glad. I'm eyeing walnut Bartletts something fierce. This gives me more time to save :)

    Argh, Leiden at $279 but calf/suede at $335.75. Welp, guess I'm trying to convince the wife I need more shell. These shell prices are insane, gentlemen. $616 for Daltons and $550 for shoes? Very tempting.

    Ha! I was considering those too. I'm probably the only person here who doesn't own a Strand, and I wanted to try something on the Indy line.

    Probably just stating the obvious, but other than the discount on shell 1sts, I think the only other honorable mention would be the strandmok 2nds at 179 (same as last year).

    Hey why is the 1776 1st on sale but not the 2nd? Should be giving those things away by now.

    @Lobster33 I don't know if others would agree, but with each subsequent sale I feel like they are almost intentionally trying to make the 2nds sale such that you go for 1sts. Wasn't always like that.
