Does anyone have any pairs with the olive Dainite soles, like the nubuck Strandmok? I'm curious how versatile they would be. Do they scream "green soles!" or are they fairly muted? Would they clash when wearing a burgundy tie?
The olive soles look good on anything brown or green.

JR soles don’t care about some rain.

Just curious, what's the hesitance around plates? It seems like the ideal solution for your requirements since it won't affect the aesthetics or feel of the double leather while ensuring that you don't burn through the toes.
I love plates. On this pair, though, I want something more grippy than the leather is all

Yes, the Allen Edmonds "Snuff" suede is more brown and darker than the Alden "Snuff" suede which is bit lighter and has more yellow in it. Interestingly, I would call the Allen Edmonds color "Cinnamon" and the Alden "Butterscotch" rather than calling them both "Snuff". Also note that every dye lot will be different.

Left = Carmina Brown suede
Left Center = Alden snuff suede
Right Center = Alden Hummus suede
Right = Allen Edmonds snuff suede

More examples of Alden's "Snuff" suede and Allen Edmonds "Snuff" suede which can vary based on lighting.

A fair point. I LOVE my GMTO Macneils in “snuff” suede (a/k/a MacSuedes) but I call it brown. Definitely darker than most folks’ snuff or polo.

Have any of you tried on the recent rendition of the Force 10 boat shoes? I tried some on today and they are 1000 percent better than the first iteration.

I didn’t realize they had been revamped (slight pun intended). Any idea what is different?

I tried the original version, but it was too narrow in the toebox even though it was a EEE.

Now I’m gonna have to try them again. Thanks for the info!

BTW, @Roycru would be pleased to know that for folks on O’Connell’s email list, today’s featured shirt is an unfused, unlined OCBD in BUTTER YELLOW.
Was it on special sale pricing? I also know that @savvysartorial loves a classic OCBD with good collar roll.
