    ^ why the hate? If they're not your style, move on. You've made your point bud.

    #1) Not so into the idea of buying simply because of brand, especially when the brand will cost 2x or more than a similar option.

    #2) Fit is King, so I totally understand if this is a big factor in deciding.

    #3) I'd like to see some better pics of those EG's. The lack of lighting + the flash makes them look black. I'm fascinated to see what blue shell looks like & see it as it ages. Being that blue shell isn't common, I can see this as another big factor in deciding.

    Christmas is the Vintage Shoe Addict's DREAM! No one buys Vintage Shoes as a Christmas gift (or it's rarely done), so there are few buyers out there... letting the Addicts snatch up many gems at low prices.

    Foster & Son Blue Suede Wingtip Specs. These are mind-blowing in person.

    I just received my Anniversary shoes from Leffot - the EG Westminister (double monk) in navy shell on the 888. They are very dark - look black unless you really look at them. First person I showed them to inspected them about two feet from their face and didn't realized they were blue until I said something. The creasing starts to show some hints of lighter blue. They are going to age very nicely.
