@MGoCrimson ^ I'm not sure that sole is reddish-I think it's the lighting maybe I whipped out my Carminas that are brown to compare the sole edge. The boot and the leather oxford look to have a reddish sole in the picture but in person they are just a smooth dark brown Honestly, I would like to know what sole edge options there are. I like the lighter sole edge on my suede shoes, which looks to be a shade that falls between the natural sole edge and the brown sole edge. The natural sole edge might actually be a little too light And we just met and you are wanting me to go commando already???
