    I have a pair of green bontonis but they are a brownish/green and I love the hell out of those. I like the idea of a brown but would you be open to shell as opposed to calf? And possibly the queens last instead of the wide solder last?

    I would prefer the green loafer for spring/summer.

    Loden suede loafers (maybe both full strap penny or string) is definitely in the works! I'll announce it in December so we can get it before spring!

    Justin - I'm down for shell... I don't own any and the split toe would be a nice style for it... cordovan or saddle?

    I do however have another proposition... Carmina Tanker Boots:

    I'm open to suggestions but I do prefer this one the way it is though.. dark brown suede. I feel the white stitching pops against the dark suede.
    I'm partial to Soller on the belief that it is a wider(widest) last... but if that's not the case then I'm down for whatever is :)

    I remember few members were interested in that saddle shell tanker boot make up.
    Maybe we can make it happen this time? :D

    Ian I have never purchased any split toes and I tried on Alden's split toe and it blew my mind. Such a great shoe.

    If we do a split toe can we do it on the Queens just as its not a super wide last but its a slightly cleaner last. Id be open to any color shell, light or dark. I will at some point add the no8 shell from Alden so I would prefer a lighter to medium shell. Cognac might be the best IMO.

    Steve I am always open to the boot option

    I have this shoe in dark brown cognac shell and absolutely love it. It's one of my favorite shoes and is incredibly versatile. Been thinking about getting the same shoe in burgundy shell. Saddle, though, . . . hmmm . ..

    Saddle would be the best way to balance out your dark cognac shell :slayer:

    I might be interested in that split toe too... Was thinking about that or a single monk for the next order. I'll have to wait on last input until the loafers come by, but I have a feeling I might need something a bit on the narrow side..
