which maker is that?
Two actually. A HW Sons of Henrey (in Burgundy grain of some sort) SpTD. And a pair of Ramon Cuberta SpTD, also in Burgundy. The RCs I would need to see a drawing of how they may look, so I am waiting on that. Last thing I need is a pair of prissy looking one dimensional Split toes.

Does anyone have any AMs in either Castagna del prete or Noce di benevento? Would like to see these colors in the wild.

Thanks in advance!

I just happen to be wearing a pair of Decurion 3s in Castagna del prete today; here you go:

That is so sexy, now I am having second thoughts about stocking it in this or oxblood. Man, look at those shoes. Antonio is incredible
They are amazing shoes, and the color has so much depth - my cell phone camera can't quite capture it, but it gets close... E sì, Anotonio è il maestro. :)

looks a bit front heavy than soft square but still very good
You hit the nail on the head.

There was something slightly off to my eye about these shoes. I could not put my finger on what it was. Front heavy!

I may be in the minority here, but after looking at several of AMs Split toes the style does not work for all leathers. The SpTDs that @nishant demonstrated a few days ago were glorious. When I have seen the Split Toes with a smooth leather, especially with a shine, the robustness of the frontal part of the shoe is accentuated. With a shined grained leather, I would anticipate the same reaction.

Perhaps either employing the design primarily with suede, or an unshined matted appearance should provide balance 🤔.

Saying that, they are still a fantastic pair of SpTDs that warrant addition to anyone's wardrobe.

For what it's worth, my vote goes to Castagna del prete - I've been shopping for a brogue that looks like this for a long time and after seeing one, I would snap one up at the first opportunity.

Then in that case I would do it in this color and make the Hastatus in oxblood instead!

I have been on this Oxblood/Burgundy, even Aubergine for few months. Should make for a popular but versatile piece I think.

I guess with split toe, the attention is on the front by default, so now you mirror shine it with antiquing on the toe will definitely bring all the attention to the front, I guess that's why sometimes round toe can look a bit more balanced (because it draw less attention to the front vs. chisel, not sure), though I still prefer chisel, guess it's either soft square in F (live with a bit heel slippage) vs. Chisel 2...

Thanks! The color looks awesome. Mid brown but dark enough yet not too dark like a dark brown.
Looking at doing something with AM in this color. This might have helped me in deciding which color to go for.
