Anyone who has tried Oscar and Robert, can you comment on the fit difference? Is Robert the same length as Oscar, with a narrower toe? Same instep and width?

Armagnac PTB in Detroit. These were seconds I bought from the outlet sight unseen.....as you can tell the shoes are clearly two different shades of Armagnac. Bothered me for about 2 minutes then I figured no one except me and the folks on this forum will notice anyway, so I've been putting them to good use. Only really noticeable in direct sunlight.

I actually really like both shades, left shoe has an olive undertone and right shoe has a reddish undertone. Would have been even more spectacular if both shoes were the same shade :rotflmao:

Put them in direct sunlight for a while and chances are they will even out

I thought about this but it seems the underlying shades are so different that a sunfade would actually highlight the difference more. I would think the right shoe would fade towards a color 4 whereas the left shoe would fade more towards a cigar color.
