    If you don't have a boot, you should grab the branch. You'll find yourself reaching for them more often than you thought.

    I bought the daltons and I wear them as much as possible. I almost exclusively wear boots now, including for work.

    I might have to keep this up in the summer unless they get too hot!

    Walnut cloud seems to be more of a "splotchy" burnishing job with more of the color variation throughout the whole shoe, vs regular walnut where the burnishing is more heavily targeted on the toe, and quarters.

    the walnut cloud is the standard walnut for the park ave. if you want the park ave in the more traditional burnishing similar to, say... the walnut kenilworth, you would have to get it as a Special Make Up/custom order

    Guys,

    I picked up a pair of McAllister's a while back and they are almost feeling broken in. I also grabbed a pair of Blue Neumok's recently and have been wearing them barefoot. They feel very good and are unlined which, I guess, makes them breathable. I was wondering if I could wear the McAllister's without socks as well, but they are lined? Any reason not to other than looking like a doosh??

    Sincerely,
    Kevin

    swamp foot???

    that's a recipe for sweat-stained leather lining. do a light dusting with gold-bond powder first, or get some stealth "no-show" loafer socks.

    good luck!

    Ok, thanks for this. I figured there was a reason not to be bareshoed with a lining :)

    I'd bet that your Neumok's would fare much better in the long run if you wore loafer socks with them as well.

    Looking great Patrick!

    Mine will never go on a maiden voyage as I just made up my mind to sell them today.

    [​IMG], unless they are a 12D, which makes me [​IMG] because with two pairs of Carmina's enroute, I cannot purchase another pair for awhile.

    It was kinda a knee jerk decision to buy the 3 pair of MTOs I did. I am more in love with other shoes at the moment and I just want to make some room. I'll be selling Cappuccino Leeds, Dundee and MacNeils. MacNeils are still being made.



    Sorry. They are 8D.
