    Hmmm...this give me an idea for a potential GMTO:

    A plain-toed Walnut Dalton with black Dainite soles. No wings, no heel accent, no perforations.

    Another similar idea would essentially be a Higgins Mill in Walnut Calf.

    I think the walnut HM would be more likely to fly with AE down the road. We'll see if we ever get the level of customization that allowed Bagley's boots to exist again.

    Yeah. As I was typing, it dawned on me that I was essentially asking for a HM in Walnut. The only real modification (other than the leather) I'd make is to make the tongue leather instead of suede and replace the lace hooks with holes. I could also do without the accent stitching on the sides.

    Just catching up today. I'm sure you've already gotten plenty of responses but here's another Natural HM just in case.

    I've been going back and forth a bit with them via email today. Even from across the country, that sales team treats me exceptionally well. They have been receiving all of my business since the first time I used them last year. All of them are seriously top notch!

    Do you actually wear those out of the house, or do you take photos and then put on some beaters? Those look amazing!

    Resolution Day #39 - Walnut Liverpool

    Maiden voyage of the Liverpools.

    Just purchased these from the Seconds sale at the SB. Not too bad for $195.

    Thanks.

    I take the pictures first, then go out for the day's activities. So of course the pictures look better than the shoes would look at the end of the day. But after a good wipedown and brushing they return to their previous glory, minus the creases and rolls.

    Your pix look great, for some reason I am always putting nicks, scratches, dings, etc. in whatever footwear I have on. Been that way all my life. I envy you that your boots can look so nice after brushing and wipe down.

    Mine have the creases in them. Can't figure out how to make them go away, even though I brush until my arm hurts after each wear.
