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.
What about mustard suede?

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:

Hey @Notch , where are we with this one? Do we have enough traction yet to get things going?

And are we pivoting off this one for the unlined navy Utah loafer?

Im in trouble. I can’t decide between lined or unlined loafers (and no, both is not an option). I want it as a summer shoe so coolness is a big plus. That makes me think on the unlined. But I’m afraid an unlined loafer night lose shape with use and in general last less. The last factor that nakes me doubt is that the suppleness of utah might be enough to compensate and make even the lines one a great summer shoe.
I hope you can help me with your collective experience.

Thx!

263$ for those in the US..

I’d definitely pounce if I had a sure way to sneak them into the house :-(
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.

Many thanks, Tom!
