The vamp break on that pair looks great. What denim is that?
I got really lucky on these boots. The vamp break is nearly symmetrical on both sides. My other shoes haven’t been so fortunate, but I love them all the same.

The jeans are Uniqlo skinny jeans. I have not ventured into nicer pants just yet. For whatever reason though I’ve been spending quite a bit on shoes I have been content with cheaper clothes. Perhaps that’ll change when I look at other areas of this forum. Have hardly ventured out of the Alden and Grant Stone threads.

More laces to try out. Can’t decide whether I like these more than the flat laces in the same color. Also ordered the thinner round laces to compare.

These laces in both brown and whiskey don’t work for me on the bourbon diesel. The darker brown on the leather laces just seems more right. Same goes for the thicker flat laces. I do have some hope that one of those pairs will work on the midnight suede Ottawa whenever that arrives. Or maybe some tan leather laces.

If it were me, I'd try to find some thin flat waxed laces that are dark like the welt. Too many different shades of brown going on.

I have those sort of laces, and the stock ones are a dark brown as well albeit a bit long. I do agree that the dark brown is a good look and didn't imagine switching to these lighter laces with the darker welt at first. Both the dark brown and these whiskey/beige go quite well. The lighter laces just stand out a bit in comparison

Ha, I’m in the same boat (with clothes) since I have young kids with sticky fingers. I can keep my shoes nice, clothes are a different story.

Got b grade bourbon suede travelers today. Man I love this suede. I’m pretty sure the defect is a welt stitching cosmetic thing. It’s literally the part I walk on and it won’t mess with the stability or longevity of the shoe, so I’m ok with it.
They are drying from the tarrago nano spray now.

These suede travelers are fantastic. They almost feel like slippers. The lining is so smooth and soft. Overall, I like them even better than my dune travelers. Well done GS! Thank you!

I'm really into GS's Long wing in Crimson CXL. I own a pair of Diesel boots and the fit is pretty good. Should I use the same size? I know they are both on the Leo last, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

I wear the same size in both. If you have heel slip in the boots, it may be more pronounced in the bluchers though, as the heel is lower.

^Thanks! I've read/watched on YouTube a few people mention the heel being a bit wide on their shoes. I haven't noticed it too much on my boots though. They fit my weird feet pretty well. Just wish they had more EEE options.

Same size in both for me, which is why I'm going to be listing a pair of GS Bluchers on the GS B/S/T thread in a while. Wrong size :(

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
