    Thanks for getting in touch! Estrusco is a indeed good option, however, the other participant and I have agreed on Tobacco suede.

    Could we possibly persuade you to reconsider? [​IMG]

    EBs tobacco suede is a great color. However, I find suede balmorals (though this will be a loafer technically I guess) difficult to pair with my wardrobe.

    In any case my intent was not to convince the group that one is better than the other. I can see both working really.

    Good luck with the make up and keep me in mind for future similar make ups :)

    Haha. I'm pretty sure it won't just be me :)

    I'm thinking though that with shell there is a risk that a roll will form across where the fake laces are and that would be unsightly. Especially at risk are those with low insteps since EB is known for lasts with generous insteps.

    precisely - though the idea of shell is always, as they say nowadays, 100. [​IMG]
