    Something about that Split Toe 3964 design I think looks really elegant on a smooth leather, especially with a slight burnish, and a nice shine. Just like the initial picture. I feel like the workmanship won't "look" the same with a suede or grained leather.

    But these are all interesting ideas, and its a pretty model. Not a fan of Norvegese on this model.

    And @tdes81 I do wonder what it would look like on the 946...



    Personally, I think it would look lights out in Burnished Aubergine Calf, Burnished Burgundy, or Burnished Navy with a medium brown flat 270 welt & millerghie sole.

    Would prefer this in regular calf also, but preferably burnished navy

    Agree. I'd prefer burnished navy, but I'm not particular on the welt color.

    I would be in on almost any makeup with the norvegese/bombe waist combo.

    I'm really on the market for a midbrown NST, so I'm not too interested in burgundy or navy. I could do the burnished aubergine however...

    I think the 946 would probably be the perfect last for this model. I really like the look of an NST on a chiseled last, for example these St. Crispin's on the riva last:

    EB has aubergine calf? The riva is a round toe.

    @Burzan The grain leather of those double monks looks excellent.
