    The heal and toe stiffners really are extreme stiff. Mine feel almost like they have steal toes. Gives you piece of mind that the shoe won't lose its shape.

    Do you know if SC uses celastic or shoulder for their stiffeners? I believe the former won't mold to your foot, but the later will.

    leather stiffeners for the heel, like most other high end RTW, not sure about the toe.

    Can you please post some more photos? I am curious to see the leather up close. Thanks.

    Could someone describe how the Yoyo (GEYO) sole is in terms of grip and cushioning?

    How does it compare to other rubber soles (Dainite, Ridgeway, Commando etc.)?

    "Fucking awesomeness" pretty much sums it up. :)

    Sure thing!

    The suede is quite hairy and rich.

    That suede is stunning. My next up is a suede mod 539. I already have it in CRU, but its just an awesome loafer I could see myself wearing in 2-3 more finishes/colors options. I am looking at KUD suede, but does anyone know the differences between the different suede options STC has?
