I'm not trying to poke the bee hive, but I've never been a big fan of the U-tip. I own the Rothsay boots that have it, but not really my cup of tea. It looks unfinished to me, but that's just my point of view. Give me split toe or plain toe.I really like the way the Lasalle handles the back half of the shoe. In fact, it looks great. I just wish I could get behind the sewn apron look. If they went full (plain toe) blucher on it, ditching the apron and split toe, and went instead with a MACHINE stitch u-tip (like a stock Alden Indy) I would really be hard pressed not to own a pair. Assuming they moved it away from the 108 of course.
Just for fun, I compared the new natural vs. the old natural. You will get an idea of how much darker the new one is. I now know that going up 1/2 size in the Higgins is my best size. These fit really well. I may just sell off my old brown pair because they've always felt a little too snug in the ankles and leg area.
