While riding out the ice storm - and watching some football - I thought it was a good time to spruce up my trio of #8's (l-r: 2013 AE Cambridge, early 80's Hanover PTB's, and 70's Florsheim Imperial LWB's). Anyway, after brushing it was time to apply edging and it occurred to me that two of the three had black edging but one pair had dark brown. (The Cambridge has black). I was wondering if this is simply a matter of personal preference or if black is considered "preferred" for burgundy shell shoes. Thoughts?
