    No, it's white stitching on dark brown suede.

    That wasn't even close - nice, regardless.

    my apologies for hijacking the thread but I was hoping for suggestions/recommendations as I ease my way into the world of suede shoes...

    I think suede is very elegant when I see others wearing them. I like to try suede for casual purposes (chinos, jeans and SC) but since I've never had one before, this is a radical style/behavior change for me. I am looking for an item that would compliment my current casual wardrobe and here's a couple of items I'd like for trial purposes...

    http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/produc...dID=7&catID=20

    this would be my preferred style but I am not ready to spend the money until I am comfortable with the material, maintenance and more educated on suede's aesthetic value...

    ...not sure if this will help but I am only 5-6 [​IMG] . Thanks in advance gents and sorry for the lenghty post...

    as far as length and width - yes
    for volume, feels like they have a slightly flat/low toecap, and a high instep, which makes my heel tend to slip out a bit.

    i have a medium-high arch. those with shallower arch may not find these appropriate.


    Had been eyeing those ^ for a while. Too bad fit probably won't work for me. [​IMG]
