    But I'm interested in the thought process that leads to ordering them with burgundy suede uppers.
    Think like a dandy, and it all makes sense.

    Well, I guess it may be different for others but I like the idea of a contrast leg and the suede is comfortable around the ankle. What I really like is that the boot is a chameleon... under the drape of one's trouser leg, the boot appears to be little more than a shoe. It's colour and antiquing set it apart from the black oxford masses, but when I sit down, BANG! Those suede tops are killer [​IMG]
    I guess it would be the same as having RED or money-GREEN socks [​IMG] I have actually been thinking since I joined SF that a shoe like this would be nice: [​IMG] http://www.gazianogirling.com/kent.html Speed

    That's probably the only explanation that would make any sense to me.

    They certainly would. A firm favourite of mine from the new line up.

    We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable

    Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity

    Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God

    Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves

    Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs

    Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character

    Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings

    Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all

    Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

    Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

    Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out

    Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs


    Most important: Step 13

    Once our addiction has been taken away, we donate all our shoes to the members of this forum

    I feel that the speed lacers have the same effect as Manton's buttons in that they lend a cheaper air to the shoes. However, I do not suggest modiffication like I did to Manton as these are not shoes that can be worn in a work or social environment, so you should enjoy them at home however you like.

    Well, at least with socks you don't have to wear the funny colored ones if you want to look like a regular human being. The pic you put up actually is pretty eyecatching and an interesting shoe. I don't like the last at all, but the combo works to my eye.

    I think the first i saw was the one Panzer posted "Stuarts Choice".
    Delos and Dimiri have done them to I think.

    As for G&G that leaves you with a MTO in one of four lasts ...

    Is the "darkside" beckoning?
