    Which last for that first pair of loafers? Great color. I'd likely get a burgundy or green suede pair. Love the shape!

    Delapre is really really soft and supple. Color is pretty dark in most lights which is exactly what I wanted.

    Specs are:
    Racing Green Delapre / Black Willow
    F82
    Flat Welt
    Single Dainite

    Man they look great, that green delapre is really muted and goes well against black willow. You hit the home run.

    You should be able to order those, and because they're permanent stock you probably won't have to pay an MTO fee. Email Skoak sales if you really want them.

    I tried before, but burgundy inverness are not permanent stock, only dark oak & black are permanent stock. Should order one even with mto fees before the price increase.

    I can't promise that I won't steal this idea. And then when that inevitable day comes when we pass each other on the streets of LA wearing the same boots, I'll look you dead in the eye, give you a deliberately overt thumbs up, and just keep on walking. And yes, I could have spoilered those pics, but be honest, who amongst us didn't want to see them again?

    If you'd told me a year ago that I'd be considering green shoes I'd have said you were drunk but holy cow are those nice. EG really knows how to do dark green.

    Thoughts on the Skoak shoe trees for G&G shoes (DG70 last if it really matters)?

    Those are dope. Wear in good health.

    As for thoughts of replication voiced here, I think Patrik said something like ~"last black willow for/from EG" in relation to an incoming Dover.
    Does that mean it doesn't exist anymore? (and what is black willow exactly?)

    ^ Is there black Utah? That would work. Or green Utah.

    But yeah, those are absolutely fantastic. Really great makeup there.

    Thanks!


    Haha I pretty much only see redwings and vibergs most of the time and that is pretty much only at a place like plan check or something similar


    EG is probably my favorite green maker, the olive antique is a really great color. Still want the Galways that Unipair has but can't swing them right now





    Willow has vertical printed lines. Was going to get black country calf on this makeup but went for willow as there wasn't much left at the time. I think black utah or green utah would work as color of green utah is pretty much black as well.



    They fit the DG70 pair I have pretty well. Toe shape is a little different but otherwise good fit

    Great news. Will they be Veldtschoen construction? Single or double ridgeway sole?
