    idk, i like that they are the same color as the part of the sole that faces up. im not sure adding a 3rd color would do well here.

    Stitch - contrast is nice. Maybe even coloured socks?

    thanks, i would usually go orange, but i am missing a sock. :fu:

    i think namor is referring to the creasing and change of shade/messing with the finish, of his wholecuts, after walking around in them.

    Mormon shoes??!?!?!?!?!?! :D (Autospell/correct on phones is a bitch, ain't it?) Your photos exemplify why I have been holding back on the Navy Shell Wholecuts from Carmina. I think I'll continue to wait to see how yours 'play out' with some more wearings.

    Maybe red?

    N - I have some plain toe RL's in that shade that still ooze the white stuff after many years - but not as badly as prior.

    You probably won't keep them long enough to matter! :lol:

    Namor,

    No, I think you have some auto-completed words in your post that don't make any sense on the first reading! Mormon? What?! Anyway, got you now I think - you mean you just got these Carmina shell cordovan shoes (I think adelaides, technically, not wholecuts), they were smooth and shiny as glass....but being cordovan they wrinkled and squirted out weird white cordovan-gunk all over, within no time at all?

    Right. Can see why that would irritate. But I guess the flip side is that at least they won't get scratches and dings as easily, and will polish up again with little more than a quick brushing! Nice, anyway!
