Does anyone have a sense of how often the B-grade listings are updated?

No plans for any new bluchers or oxfords this year. You'll be able to jump in on a pre-order for a PTB if one of our fall, winter, spring preorders appeals to you.

We won't introduce the lug sole on any bluchers this year. You'll see it on a boot later this year, but no plans to bring that out on a shoe. It's going to have medium-large lugs, it should pair with our work boot pattern nicely.
I have been waiting for a shell PTB for ages ..... so excited it’s finally happening

Straightening my closet this morning.
So. Many. Shoes.
Just realized I have six (6) pairs of GS Ottawas - 6 unique pairs, as in, no duplicates. A couple are unworn. I must really like them.

(Spoiler alert: I do!)

One day, I'll get them all out for a family photo.

Looking forward to the loden suede Traveler next month.

I'm hoping it fits better than my Rancourt suede loafers. I've noticed a drastic difference in fit with Rancourt's unlined smooth leather vs lined suede. The unlined smooth leather loafers are great. No fit issues after several months. The suede loafers ended up being loose even with double tongue pads. Seems like perhaps a combination of them not being lasted as tightly along with the suede not holding its shape as well as the smooth leather options. It's a bit disappointing because suede loafers have quickly become my favorite footwear.

Perhaps the extra structure in the Travelers will make this less of an issue.

Wow those are nice. Would definitely be in for a pair of either those or saddle tan in EEE on a leather sole. Or bourbon suede.

Dune CXL Ottawa is definitely high on the list for me as well. Hard to choose between the Dune and Black CXL versions for me.

Trying to discern the difference in the Earth vs. the Waxed Tobacco leathers. They are both CF Stead waxy commander - as far as I can tell the Tobacco looks a little lighter with more reddish undertones? I suspect the GS web photo of the latter showing was after just a short wear, and the reddish brown is showing quickly. Anyone have photos of a broken in Earth Diesel?

Holy crap - those look like they’ve broken in well! What’s the make up on them?

Got your suede wet. It will never recover. Best to toss them out now and get a new pair! lol
Well, now that's a thought! The wet dew isn't nearly as bad as the black spot my car's rubber floor mat made on the right heel, can't get the damn thing out of the suede and have tried every suede cleaner I have, plus good old soap/water. But they are shoes, and made to be worn.
