    Good call. I am waiting to see if the ones with sole changes will get lucky. Sometimes with a last minute change like that, especially when there was word that sole changes weren’t allowed, wind up having some kind of trouble in the end.

    I thought it was last April that they also had 30% off firsts (shell included) if you bought three pair. That was a good deal.

    I found this also. However, tons of slip in the chukka!

    Is April usually a special sale month?

    What they ^ said. The Patriot is a great shoe if you like/need a lower vamp and narrow heel.
    I've also got the browns and love them.
    My only regret about this present Trunk Show is that they went with the Randolph over the Patriot for their loafer offering. Randolph doesn't work for me. A Navy Shell Patriot would be a World Beater. Sure hope they offer a Patriot in rare shell options at Trunk Show 2020!

    Rainy today and I decided on the Black Strandmok. The wife called last night and told me to install the new exterior light. It is like day during the night outside the front door.

    The 511 is tricky for me that way, too -- the symmetrical toe, combined with not a lot of instep room, makes it tough for me. Dalton is a hard no go, and the Dundee takes some break-in before it gets comfortable. I've got shell Leeds in a C width and a half-size up that are terrific, though. I'm also finding that softer construction on a 511 is sometimes actually worse, because I don't have enough structure to keep my foot from jamming farther forward, and becoming uncomfortable. The exception is the Massdrop chukka, which is so slight that it's basically a sock.

    FWIW, I have a normal width across the ball, high arch and instep, and a slim/deep heel. I really like a shoe that locks my heel in tight, but has room up front. Maybe I have English feet. ;)

    Flannel lined Bills and some black CXL for a wet walk in the park today

    I get your sentiment, for sure, and often share it -- but an acre of woods is vastly different from an acre of concrete in terms of the water management problems (and costs) it deflects onto neighbors, and thus to the government, which is the place where we pay for shared expenses. It doesn't strike me as fundamentally unfair that at least at some point, someone who is diverting an unreasonable amount of rainwater into the public commons should pay extra to support that commons.

    The definition of "unreasonable" is the real question, of course -- and implementation of stuff like this is rarely fair.

    Thus, ever, coexisting with humans.

    ;(
