    Looks very nice. What exactly is a translucent sole finish?

    This is when the sole is just a natural tanned colour instead of the standard Gaziano & Girling finish that looks like this (darker edges and waist is also darker).

    I also posted these in the shoe damage report thread. Ron Rider Chukka Boots in Chocolate Brown Suede, Goodyear Flex. I picked these up at the trunk show at leffot a few weeks back. It was great meeting Ron and chatting with him. The man definitely is passionate and knowledgeable about his shoes. Steven was great as usual.

    Is there a term for how the middle of the sole is slanted? Is that done for purely an aesthetic effect?

    I really like the Orleans - I wish they still made that shoe.

    I don't understand the benefit of this. Is it just aesthetic?

    You definitely will!


    The translucent finish is just an aesthetic feature. In my opinion it looks best with lightly coloured shoes.
