Gotcha. With the casualness of the rest of the leather, I'd just take it as patina. It may be a bit more visible in person, but a wet finger rub followed by a buff should make it look like natural variations in the leather.
This, or to go a little further, use a little VSC to wet you finger, then brush it out. Doesn't appear to have pulled any color up. Doubt its noticeable from the six foot rule.

Rainy day = rare wear for the Williamstown chukka.

Not a big fan of either black shoes (other than dress) or 2-eyelet chukkas, but I generally like the 65, pebble grain and (gasp—AEAT heresy!) Dainite, plus these were cheap enough to be a no-regrets impulse purchase, so trying to give them some more wear to see if they can stick.
Those look great,the combination with the burgundy pants and black chukkas is killer. I like the two eyelet look,very 60’s London. I have a pair of the old AE Jodox(Jodphur+oxford) two eyelet derbies that have that toe shape. If you’re test driving the look put me down in the “hell yeah” column

Great minds think alike! I am very happy with these so far. What does your sole look like?
I’ve been told that I have an old soul. I still like rock ‘n roll, consider myself to have a good moral compass...crap, wrong soul.

My favorite, of course.

Surprisingly, these are a 9 EE and fit perfectly. I took a gamble on this size on SB when they were getting rid of them. So glad that I did! All of my other Strand versions are either 8 or 8.5 EEE.

Nice! As you can see, I think the flaw was wrong heel rubber

McGregors are very underrated.

And I think people are also forgetting the Strandmok 2.0's sole...View attachment 1316678
While on the subject of the soles of Strandmok 2.0's, here's a picture of the white Vibram Gumlite soles of those floppy tongued fools, the grey suede Strandmok 2.0's.

Got these thinking they would be as comfortable and as easy to put on as my tan suede Strandmok 0.0's, but they are not.

They are very difficult to put on because of the floppy tongues and not very comfortable to walk around in.

I am in the process of packing to sell the house and move. This means packing away nearly every pair of shoes and boots I own. This could last for months. It's suddenly daunting to decide which pairs must remain available for various occasions. :puzzled:

I arrived late to the Macneil party. I have a pair of bourbon shell Mac’s from a fellow SF’er in 9.5E. They are a touch roomy, but so beautiful, I put an insole in and they are fine.
i just took delivery of these oxblood Macneils from the Shoebank. At 9.5D, the fit is great.
Just the right taper in the toe. I can already tell that I am going to be sad not to have more of these in the collection. So sad to see them discontinued.
