    Thanks, I was leaning towards the darker welt and edge dressing, looks really good on your Whiskey LHSs. Was also considering getting the natural and changing the color myself as the shell darkens, but probably wouldn't look as good as the factory finish.

    Don't you already have a Navy EC? Black welt/edging?

    No, he abstained due to a clinical Dainite aversion. ;)

    LoL. P-corn speaks the truth. Although my C&J MTO may have opened my eyes to Danite. I find it tolerable with a midsole. Without a midsole it is just far too stiff for me.

    seems I have gotten confused along the way...I thought we could do any shoe in Burgundy, Brown, Black shell with no MTO fee...that is not the case?

    Based on what has been said to date, I presume you had to pay a $125 SMU for your Navy First Ave? This is a make-up I'm been thinking about following some regrets about not doing the Navy EC, but I don't think I'm ready to shell out $850. [​IMG] I suppose a $80 color change fee for calf is always an option...

    EDIT: also, yes, my ECs /w leather mid-sole and dainite is more comfortable than my dainite brogue-suede Strands.
