    I had a similar first impression - don't like the sole.

    this what makes it for me on an otherwise unspectular pair of shoes.

    I just can't warm up to this style. The scale and shape of these are just too large, rounded and wide for my tastes. I prefer a leaner look.

    [​IMG] in what sense?

    they are an acquired taste. They do look better than in those pics and I like them very much with certain outfits. On the feet, they look no wider/blobbier than Alden's barrie last.

    edit: this is the same last (Rio) by the way:

    appearance, frame, height, whatever float your boat...

    they are an acquired taste.

    the ones i saw in different shops looked cheap and the details were rather sloppy. i'm really surprised, that they meet your standards.

    Just got these Alfred Sargent Handgrade Brownings in snuff suede from Leffot when I checked out the Trunk Sale last week.

    And grabbed these Alden Sand Suede Longwings a few months ago in preparation for Spring/Summer:

    Both bought on Ebay and yet to arrive. Good choices for summer with jeans or cotton pants?
