    Is that red I see in your black shoes? Very interesting.

    They are just shiny as shit and the apples are reflecting onto the shoes.

    Thanks - virtually no break-in. I wore them most of the day yesterday - after wearing them around the house a couple times - with no issues. Probably the most comfortable shoes I've owned ...:fistbump: now that I'm buying the right size.

    Beater shoes.....about 15 years old and from a decidedly NOT SF approved brand.

    Because I just don't give a s*&% today!

    Should I throw them out?

    Cool. That's one of the good things about black shoes. They pick up whatever color is around them.

    Great - with that long last (TG73) it's a bit of a concern where they'll crease. As long lasts tend to crease further out toward the toe if the size isn't perfect.

    I downsized 1/2 size on my second pair on this last and they are doing even better than the first pair.

    Glad they are working out for you......I'm toying with the idea of a G&G boot.....but probably not until next winter unless my year end profit distribution is better than I expect it will be.

    The style is certainly up to par around here. What are they? (Nice combo, btw.)

    KC (without the sunshine band :D)

    But are more than 17 years old. As I had them when I came to my current job. They are surely better quality than the current makes - but are still a glue job.

    Mostly I wear them with jeans and cords on weekends - not so often to work - but today I am in a foul mood and shitty shoes seemed just the thing!
