New boots came in! Waiting on a few Saphir products to come in before I start breaking them in.
congrats I recently picked up the chocolate daltons!
From left to right, Chocolate Brown (Dalton), Brown Burnish (5th Street), Walnut Cordovan (Dalton), Walnut (Dalton).
The chocolate are actually very dark; almost black. I have treated them with the AE dark brown polish and brown Kiwi wax. You may even be able to get them to darken up further if you use darker shoe polish.
The brown 5th Streets are in the pic for perspective and because the SA made a hat trick of the 5th Street doable last Friday... pics of the black shell and burgundy shell 5ths coming when they get here.
I know this is out of topic but have you or anyone else worn the black Mctavish with a suit or slacks. Instead of only jeans?
Very nice boot collection there. Wearing my walnut shell Daltons today. Congrats on the 5th Street purchase(s) - how do you find they fit compared to the Daltons?
Yesterday, walnut grain MacNeil with jeans for a day in the office:
Today, walnut calf Dalton with a navy suit:
A few of you have noted interest in the Parkways on the past few pages, so here is some SPAM
if spamming here is inappropriate, just take this post as my opportunity to show off some real life pics of the parkway
For those of us that have Daltons, are they a bit loose in the heel when you first get them? I got an 11B because the Bayfield (same last) fit very well in that size, as does the Strand, but I felt that my heel was a bit loose in the Dalton. Is this typical or do I just need to break them in?
It was true to size for me.
If anyone's interested I have a pair of Brand New Walnut Daltons in a 9.5D; willing to sell for $280 FIRM CONUS.
Mine (in calf) fit more loosely in the heel than Bayfield.
I like the neumoras, but they're a little boxy for my taste... Wish they made it on the 5-last.
Sir, you are a true American Hero. Your pics are always informative and beautiful- thanks!
Good to know....thanks!
