Number two in brown and walnut. I'd be in.
Ok guys I should not of worn those jeans I am sorry. I was putting up Christmas lights and on the roof and was wearing work boots which was done with the jeans and just changed out shoes for the 2:30 movie. I won't make that mistake again
We all decide which rules we want to keep and when. Bals as true dress shoes is one of the rules I keep 100% of the time.
But I actually don't disagree that the Neumok would work with certain chinos and jeans (agree on no Neumoks and slacks or suits, unless a casual linen or cotton suit), even if it's not what I'd wear. I was more making the statement, "especially not those jeans."
I know you might be all bored with anything to do with the Krause boots so I'll make this my last mention of them. I finally got around to treating the Wolverine/AE Krause boots in russet that I got. I took guidance from some others that have done this as I thought the boots looked too red and "plain" out of the box for my liking. I did not treat with any conditioner first as I wanted maximum penetration of the black polish/cream. I know this may be cheating but I wanted a more worn look and also thought it might aid in the penetration of the black cream so I actually massaged the boots, bending the leather back and forth and softening it up, mostly along the top edges of the vamp and along the eyelets.
Here's a before picture:
Here's the after picture. I actually used the black cream polish on the raw edges as well (thanks to Mario Impemba for the idea). I was quite pleased with the overall result. Ok, I'm done.
Nice job. Looks great, and much better than out-the-box. Nice laces, too.

Good Afternoon Gents
I will be putting up a pair of shoes for sale, just want to give you the heads up.
Shell Cordovan McGraw in a 10.5B, never worn. fresh coat of Saphir Reno. Will post pics, not sure the exact color but they are a lighter shade of brown. I will have all the details when I post up the FS thread.
FYI, same shoes below, but not in color 8.
Yep. You don't need the number for this shoe but in case I think this one is 9097. I really like the patina on old MacNeils, I wear mine all the time.
PSA Chicago: Saw a pair of burgundy shell MacNeil's in 9.5 EEE at Nordstrom RACK on State for $249. Some shop wear but they're shells so not really an issue.
Based on the pics and the size (13E), methinks this was a big boy who walked, a lot - They seem to be flattened out a ton...
Maybe it's just how the shoe is built and/or how the pictures present them.
