    That shoe is trying too hard. It's not doing it for me.

    Of all the different shoes in this thread it strikes me as strange that you would say this one is trying too hard.

    in what respect? it's well balanced and the last is not overstylized.

    I agree with 888. I think the last is too stylized; the chisel toe is overdone. And the adelaide throat cutout has too much going on, shape-wise.

    To me it seems a very busy shoe. It odd wingtip shape topped off with a suede insert. Looking at the shoe on the right in the picture below (just a peek visible), you see nice clean lines, with the suede part adding to the beauty of the shoe. In the shoe on the left it just adds to the confusion. Like I said....nice shoe.....but not for me. [​IMG]

    What a weird looking shoe. Over-designed is the word.

    of course this obviously can only come from a bespoken shoe and surely that is the intention.

    I do think it is quite nicely done.

    More sale damage (what can I say - I'm a cheapskate). Lobb this time. They had some Prestige for £375 (Inc. trees) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's a good sale this year. They had quite a lot of museum calf and also some monkstrap museum calf for £275 (non-prestige).

    I'm thinking it could be some remnants from the recent Northampton sale..

    That was a good buy on very nice shoes. Unfortunately, I didn't find good buys on Lobbs here. [​IMG]
