    Thanks guys, the lighter version was nice but the darker color goes better with the existing wardrobe.

    damn those came out looking really good. how did you manage to get such a smooth coating of snoseal on? i applied a coating to my roughout boots (not ndc) and in some places i couldn't manage to get that regular coating.

    I like that pair A LOT. I tried to cop a pair when Yoox had their last sale.

    Thanks, Spalla. The Belsize (dual eyelets) are by far my favorite pair. The black/Nero one were the first pair I purchased. They are very comfy and can be worn casually or formally. The constuction is amazing as is the leather and overall fit of the shoe. These pretty much sold me on the brand. I picked up a pair of bnwt Rico's off ebay for cheap shortly after and the rest was history.




    Last year I liked a Dior similar two eyelet one , the construction was not as good as on the NDC´s that I have seen, that Dior was priced 500 euros so I didn´t buy it.

    I got in the last season a similar as yours but toe cap from Ben Sherman for 69 euros , plastic sole, but I needed some for rainy days . Ben is doing very nice models , not on that league but recommended. If not I would buy yours from Yooxin black.[​IMG]

    Regards.

    The label said no suede but warning signs are for the literate.

    Someone give these a good one, never worn without socks size 42.5 fits 10.5 or narrow 11. Nicely patina'd, can be brushed to look newer of course.

    Please pardon me for the shameless promotion.

    i did the same basically, what i was wondering about was whether you used some kind of brush or tool apart from your fingers to massage the sno-seal in.

    Round laces look 100x better on just about any non-sneaker shoe/boot. I like PS laces but you can probably get random generic ones for cheap
