    I really like the look of sadle shoes, and I am wondering how you care for two different shades of leather on one shoe.

    anybody have ideas?

    also, what do you feel about a sadle shoe in 2 shades of dark brown worn with a business suit (say in dark gray).

    I have a pair of brown suede and white smooth calf shoes. I just simply care for each section as I would normally. You just have to be careful when putting white polish on. And I think a saddle in dark brown could work great. It's a look that certainly will say "American", well, except for these. There was an earlier thread.

    globetrotter, don't you dare buy those shoes without letting me come shopping too.

    Yeah, since they won't get back to me, I think I will have to steal that one and make it with Martegani.

    As far as care, you just polish each section as you normally do; just carefully.

    Beautiful shoes. How much do they run?

    A couple of years ago, if I remember correctly, they were around $450. That's when we had the Lira - now who knows...
