    They look a bit darker than my vintage cherry with chestnut pingrain as well.

    rikod - those are fantastic!

    ---

    sole question - what would you all say is the best sole for durability, but will still look nice with say, a black calf or cordovan loafer. i want a new shabbos shoe, and i do a ton of walking on shabbos, which really wears down the center of the sole and toe of shoe. i need a sole that will accomodate a lot of walking and not get worn to quick, but will still look classy.

    best bets?

    thanks!

    Thanks!

    A single or double JR soles, for loafers I prefer single. That is what Vass and Allen Edmonds cordovan uses and I love those soles.

    These are really nice. The combination leather Oakham is becoming the signature double strap monk shoes of G&G and Nick's customers in particular. I have two different ones in two different combination leathers in TG73 last and a third is underway in a different last.

    If I were going to go for winter shoes I'd go for the Canterbury on Dainite/Ridgeway in one of the new cordovans
