Hermes Red polish just came in. Hoping to add more life to these Oxblood Dalton’s. Picture below with one coat applied, without brushing :)

After a couple of coats of polish and a coat clear paste wax.

Mirror Toe next. Tried to take my time on this one, took around 20 minute :)

I recently had the opportunity to live several full days in the Commando and Dainite. My feet decided that the Commando looks cool, but it is NOT as comfortable on the pavement. It seems to be a much harder rubber.

The old OTC ones were rocking. I wish they offered more than black, navy, and charcoal when I bought them. I would have bought many more.
When you say old ones, do you mean the ones currently on clearance? I recently pulled the trigger on a few pairs after seeing them in the latest sale and remembering your past comments. Have yet to wear them myself.

Sorry, OTC?
Over the counter?
Calf.

I really like the color and sole of this boot, the tag is partially glued in place. Either way, almost no one will see it. I have spent very long days hiking on Dainite and commando and I am squarely in the commando camp.

I have the Alpine Chukka, and I am fascinated by the soles. They are the best sole I’ve ever seen on snow, ice, or just plain water.
So, is it ceramic pieces that are mixed in the sole? I imagine as the rubber gets colder and shrinks a bit, the gritty embedded part of the sole will be slightly more exposed for better grip. But wouldn’t the grit just recede with the sole material?

Happy Wingtip Wednesday forum pals. No AE LWBs today. Decided to make an initial wearing of these 1973 Florsheims I picked up recently.

I bought mine circa 2016...I am certain they've changed manufacturers since then. The new OTCs look nice, but still limited to basic colors.

Late yesterday I had this desire to call up Charleston and order some shoe trees. Then it just hit me hard that Charleston doesn't exist anymore.

It's super cold today so I went with a pair Charleston helped me secure. Lasalle in dark chili. I admit I probably don't need this pair anymore, but it sure is comfortable and the poron keeps me warm. Also, old man shoes?
