    I ordered the cuero based off of what calikids photos look like (and yours are a very similar shade). To me it looks amazing and unlike anything Horween offers (with the exception of maybe #4)

    Namor, are yours "cuero" as well? If so, yeah, they def look like whiskey and I'll be pretty disappointed if mine arrive looking that light.

    Compare peoples photos of Cuero against what's on the website and either there's some serious color variance in the batches of shell they work with or they need to get a photographer who understands color balance.

    yeah the production photos clearly look like cellphone pics so I'm keeping that in mind, I just don't understand how the photos on their website are so dark.

    btw, your MTO looks spectacular in the photos you've posted, I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.
    (i wasn't knocking the color, I just have a lot of whiskey and hope my NSTs aren't that light)

    No worries, I wasn't thinking that anyhow. I think it's expected that shell will have some variance. I've kinda of gone into all of this with an open mind, so looking forward to any surprises (or not)

    My MTO are shipping today, should be here next week sometime. They are one of the more boring MTO's done, basically a plain black cap toe oxford on the olfe last with a few little touches, but i'll put the obligatory photos up once they arrive.

    Well that's a pity, and they seemed to have produced some in the past in dark brown (pretty sure I've seen semi brogue bluchers and a full brogue oxford in brown). Burgundy longwings maybe? I can't see you getting too much use out of a pair of black PTBs or tassel loafers?
