How well does the v-tread wear vs other similar low profile options and/or JR?

I really need to see the edge colors. I think TS19.1 navy just used brown...I think the reverse welt would look great with the double v-tread. Visually, probably pretty similar to the profile of the HM on dainite. I think Navy would pair well with buff, brown, and antique welt/edges. Doo eet!!
The Bradley was my target for this trunk show.While we ponder over the unknown chili and shaved shell colors, it’s important to also consider regular cordovan offerings but in an atypical color. Bradley only comes on burgundy but would be sweet in brown. Leeds and MacNeils are not offered in brown. Strands are not offered in burgundy or black, but both are sweet colors. The list goes on.
I walk a lot on concrete. JR wears MUCH better than rather leather, but still wears down quickly on concrete. When I walk, I wear down the toe MUCH faster than elsewhere. This is most apparent on my Whitney shoes, which have leather toes and very strong rubber elsewhere. It is also apparent on both my leather and JR soles. I need metal taps on all those shoes. However, it seems to not happen on butyl, v tread, or Dainite.10 wears in on vtread TS19.1 and they look relatively new. Much softer feel than Dainite so they will wear faster.
JR wears like iron unless you get them wet and walk on concrete/asphalt.
Yes. Navy/green were just brown last time. Antique/chili is going to be within this range (similar to Alden antique). there's a bit of redness to it. I don't have any factory fresh chili edges thoughI really need to see the edge colors. I think TS19.1 navy just used brown...
What I really need is a side-by-side comparison of the TS19.2 edges to see how that goes with the shell colors and soles.
Heard! No promises, but I see all the Rogue talk.Morning all. First day back in real shoes after having foot surgery so I had to reach for something comfortable. In honor of the upcoming trunk show, natural shell Leeds seemed like an easy choice.
PS Ashley can we pretty please have a Rogue as an option next trunk show?
