    I think a few weeks back someone explained that Allen Edmonds uses the same sole for shell and calf shoes (all ordered from Horween in bulk), which explains why non-shell shoes will have that stamp. Can anyone confirm?

    You know what? I think I'm not really into the natural welt altogether, despite being a former fan. It's the one thing about my Spiaggias I'm not crazy about. Every time I look down at my feet, it looks like those shoes are giving me a big toothy grin. Cheeky bastards!

    hey man... if you love them, more power to ya! It definitely is worth pointing out that generally the goal on an LWB is for it to look boat-ish so that totally makes sense, just not my style. Also, if casual is what you are going for, then you certainly achieved it with this look.

    I'm not saying they are ugly at all, they are good looking shoes for sure... the color of the upper is gorgeous!

    Wow these are nice! I like the contrast of the welt against the uppers. I agree that a lighter edge would take it to the next level. Maybe a natural toasted edge? I also love the fact that the eyelets are visible. Was this specified in your MTO? Are these antique brass eyelets? Time to wipe drool off my phone.

    Has anyone gone the MTO route for a burgundy cordovan with a chili welt? If so, could you please share pics? I am trying to work out the details of my next make up and would love to see how that combination comes together.

    As you can imagine, these are pretty difficult to photograph. Here's my attempt from this morning. I forgot to tell Allison that I wanted brown "piping" on the top line area, but that won't be noticeable w/ pants. Also, I need to pick up a shorter pair of brown laces.

    Thanks! Yes, you're right, those are antique brass eyelets, which I did specify.

    [​IMG] This makes me very excited for my cappuccino Macneils. Seeing those exposed eyelets makes me think I should have gone that route.....but I'm sure they will be beautiful, none the less. When was your invoice date?

    I am sure you can always add the eyelets down the road.

    Just to clarify, Horween doesn't make soles. The soles are made by JR. Search for this discussion from a few weeks ago.
