Contrasting the Snuff with the Oyster makes the Snuff look quite dark. Appreciate you taking the time to do this.
No worries! You’re absolutely right. What’s funny is that the snuff looks quite dark only because the oyster suede is so light! It’s almost a light beige suede.

I have never seen the oyster suede in real life. It does look great.

Your picture made me go back and look at the contrast between Snuff and Mink suede.

I bought those same snuff suede 202s last week but they were a little dark and had too much of a red tone for me. Beautiful shoe though for sure.

I looked at those F&S items. They don’t take PayPal, so I passed.

Do they just take C&J and EG shoes and change the label? Some of those look like they are just straightforward EG stock models for roughly the same prices

typically shoes made for a private label will be specific to that label. Think of it as a large MTO order. It may be something such as a specific color, material or sole or on a particular last. The same way you would place an individual MTO order. So your observation shouldn't come as a surprise.

Not so weird to be honest. PayPal recently changed their policies. As a online retailer you get charged a substantial amount of fees. If the product is returned, you would previously have the fees refunded, but not anymore. I'd quit PayPal too.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
