    I love these Cretaceous shoes and feel sorry for those who feel that they don't have the nuts to wear them.

    glad you made all your comments about the paprikas. great.

    Those big welts are really starting to grow on me!

    Can anyone tell me how to pronounce goyser properly?

    If you look closely, the toe itself isn't really squared off... It's the top-sole that's more squared. If I didn't like it, I could just have that topsole contoured slightly... but I won't.

    Santoni Limited Edition Split Toe Monk. Got 'em "Riderized"- they're such a deep brown/burgundy (it's strange, in some light they look burgundy, but in the flash they look brown), they outdo some of my shells).

    ........obviously Lattanzi thinks they're what's gonna bring in the big bucks.......and they show off his creativity as a designer.

    ........feel sorry for those who feel that they don't have the nuts to wear them.

    Lattanzi can help those too (and supply the missing bits), with the aptly named design "Mon Dieu":

    I like your taste, mr monty! I think these combine the best elements of OTT stitching + a touch of elegance. Very Nice.

    Santoni Limited Edition Norvegese stitched Captoes in antique brown: [​IMG]
    I think these the best ones posted in this thread. I only like this stitching if the shoe is a) an oxford and b) relatively elongated/sleek otherwise. I would love wear the above shoes with jeans and chinos. Anyone know who sells Santoni in NYC? The bluchers and monks look way too bulky to be elegant IMO. Also the stitching is a loud enough detail on its own, I don't see the point of having wild antiquing on the leather as well.
