• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Every time you post a pic of the split toes, which is quite often, the look grows on me more. I tend to prefer the look of my Indy boots, but NST/Ottawa are looking better every day.
There was a time I didn't like NST shoes or boots, never thought I'd own a pair, then I stumbled into a pair of Alden NST's for a really low price (they were used). Tried them and found I really like the look. Love my Indy boots as well, don't get me wrong......Then I discovered GS footwear, and well......the rest is history. Own a few (well actually a lot) of their boots and LOVE the Ottawa, look/fit/construction/company/QC/the people who are GS. So I may post more NST and plain toe boot/shoe pix in the future. Which is now. Saddle Tan Diesel for the evening at home. Possibly my favorite GS leather and color, although wife prefers the Dune coloring. But she's not wearing them :)

Exact same. I love the saddle but my wife wanted the Dune.

The Dune/natural CXL tends to be pretty subdued. The richer tan colors have more pop to them and give off a more masculine vibe. Hence some of the difference in taste between men and women. Now I used to prefer the strong tan but now am more fond of the subtler tones.

White with a gum sole.
I’m a big fan of gum soles. I have a pair of cheap Adidas gazelles with gum soles and would wear them a ton in summer, although this was before I got into higher end footwear.

Gum soles are nice since they eliminate the issues of keeping white soles unscuffed and adds a nice contrast. I have a pair of olive suede Greats with gum soles too.

Agreed, gum soles have a nice classic look and require less maintenance. I am a huge fan of Sambas but would like something that hold up a bit better.
