Löf & Tung Silky Smoov Suede Adelaide GMTO


Jul 22, 2017
Reaction score
A crisis of an existential nature has consumed my life for some time now. I'm sure many here are familiar with it.

I've had varying levels of success in nursing this impenetrable issue through buying awesome shoes.

But, this is the devils work!

Every goddam time I buy this amazing new art to wear on my feet I go through the same process.

First I think that this pair is going to be it. These are the one.

And then I get it, wear it, and love it to varying degrees depending on how comfortable they are (I've realized that has a major multiplier effect on my enjoyment).

And every goddam time I eventually end up buying another pair.

When I chatted with Löf & Tung about setting up a GMTO for the lovely suede adeliades detailed below, I knew this was finally going to be my last pair.

Because this time it's different!

This time it's that one true love that will bathe me in sunshiney rays of good feelings and redeem my weary soul.

Brothers, join me in a silky smoov suede redemption.

With the oath of just 6 of us (currently 2-3 interested) to the following specs, we can make this thing happen:

The main difference for this GMTO is that the broguing (sp?) on the cap will be removed so it's a more traditional adelaide.

I'm also interested to have a contrast welt like this traditional adelaide beauty:

The Details:
  • Material: Polo suede
  • Style: Adelaide
  • Sizing: Similar to Carmina Forest
  • Welt: Goodyear welted. I would prefer a contrast welt as mentioned above.
  • Sole: Leather or up for other ideas.
  • Price $330 USD (I believe free shipping worldwide)
  • Turnaround time: 3-4 months (when I asked and I will get an updated delivery date once the group is in)
Here are some more images of the Lof & Tung adelaide with cap brogue in chocolate calf. Theres a few pics so you get a better idea of the full build.

If you may be interested in this makeup, comment below and we can chat further.
