    I would've gotten the saddle shell Alcudia adelaides if the green hadn't been available. I was also tempted by the blue shell wholecuts, but the adelaides are in regular production, & the blue looked a little too close to black. I couldn't resist the punching & the green. Now I've got something to wear every St. Patty's.

    Now we are shoe brothers! Twins! Your photo captures the color much better than I've been able to capture with mine so far.

    DAMN! I was hoping you would buy the blue - I wanted to see a real life picture of them 'on the hoof'. :D

    Where did you buy those? I've been looking for green shoes. What color belt do you wear? Thanks.

    You don't have to yell!

    I was asking if you would wear a black belt with the shoes...the green is rather dark. I have never seen a green belt or anyone wearing green shoes. I bet the green shoes would look good with navy pants.

    Lol. My bad, was in data entry caps mode. You'll need a matching belt if you want to "dress" them up. If casual, find a canvas ribbon belt that matches your pants or shirt, or sock, preferably with a green stripe (to match greenies).

    It's not easy to find a matching belt but that's part of the deal you make when getting an odd colored shoe. I know because I'm looking for a navy Leather belt in size 36 to match my navy shell boot. Surprisingly difficult to find.
