What about mustard suede?Haha, I still have those .
The problem here still is, that I'm quite limited to what leather options I have if I want it to be a more sustainable leather. I want to go with full-grain, metal-free tanned leather or at least leather that comes from a well known, sustainable tannery such as Dani.
My colour cards are quite limited because of this, but I'll try to make it work.
The fact that the suede supplier has increased the availability of their eco-suede was a major step forward, and shows the commitment of certain suppliers to a better future, which I think is great.
Hey @Notch , where are we with this one? Do we have enough traction yet to get things going?So, now that the Burgundy Utah Halway is ready to go, who's in for the Navy blue Utah Halway?
I propose the following makeup:
- All Navy blue Utah 'Halway' Field boot
- Leather pull tab
- Bellows tongue
- Vibram Eton rubber sole (Vibram version of Dainite)
- 270 degree flat welt
- Leather lined boot & Shaft
- Elegant Round last
- 3mm midsole
- Dark brown edge
- Gunmetal eyelets and speed-hooks (5/3 configuration)
Some pictures from Edward Green Galway in Navy Utah in a similar makeup:

I wore my Craigs for the first time today (had to have the cobbler put on thin rubber soles first). They are very nice! The leather is slightly textured and somewhat reflective/shiny outside. They work well as semi-casual shoes, but the leather is still smooth enough that they could be worn with a suit.
