An example of the final shoe I have chosen. I opted for 5 eyelets rows instead of six. The leather is black, but finished off in Burgundy polish - hence the laces and sole contrast.
Reminds me of the joke about East Germany. A Texas car collector heard that the hardest car in the world to get hold of new was the Trabant, which had a multi-year waiting list. To get something nobody else had, he flew to Saxony to see if he could cut a deal. And so delighted were the plant managers to get hard currency that they put him right to the front of the queue.
Back home, he bragged about his success, taking particular care to note the courtesy the East Germans had given him. "They were so glad to have an American customer that not only did they give me a tour of the factory, but they sent home a life-sized paper model to drive until the real one comes."
Although these look much nicer than a Trabant.
Insole on trial shoes...
