What??? R. has Horween Football grain leather???!!??

That's dangerous.

(I did see that @mdubs got a couple of unicorn pairs from R including #4 shell loafers and reverse shell boat shoes. Anything is possible, I guess.)
You can also get Stamped Shell Cordovan, such as grain, as well from Horween!!! :)

Broke down and ordered navy strand flat welt brown edge on V-tread

wondering if I should have gone with antique but I already have a lot of options with the antique edge

I feel like this is a really boring order for a TS, but I thought brown flat welt would be more versatile for me

maybe I'll call and ask for v-tread
i go back and forth on whether I think Green or Navy are more versatile. Both look killer on strands...wish they fit me better

I’ve been debating a Leeds in Navy, but I’m not sure how much I’d wear them. I already have Bourbon cordo and a brown calf though.

I have a harder time with navy than green. #GreenTeam @ProfilaBinding

Don't get me wrong, I love navy on certain models. My fear is that they will just end up on my shelf as another museum shoe. I've been able to wear my blue PA with success. I've also come to realize I like navy shoes with a darker sole (not saying there's anything wrong with a lighter sole). I think lighter soles look great with the light blue (like the new suede Strandmok), but I much prefer dark brown or black for navy. One exception is that I think the blue Dainite sole looks good with the navy shell.

What do you wear your navy PA with? Navy suit?

Black Tumbled Hamilton Cap-Toe Boot with Blue Dainite. Probably will get something in navy with Blue Dainite at the next TS. Heading to AE in a few minutes to purchase Landon in Green Shell with Double Rendenbach (unless I change my mind between here and there).

Here I sit trying to work and not think about ordering just one more pair.... All this talk of football grain and bourbon and colored Dainite is not helping my professional productivity. Trying to stay ready for the RDA sale...when does that start again?

Snuff Pattons today. Yes I need to find shorter laces.
