These are galaxy patina, too. But the main issue is that I already have plenty of blue shoes and asked expressly for a non-blue patina and something customized. So I wasn't happy with the stock galaxy blue patina.

I liked them more when they had the galaxy patina.

They can be fixed! My Graziat’s came with a letter essentially saying I can send them back and get them a brand new patina one time for free.

Thank you for the suggestion but they were fixed! From blue to the current green galaxy patina that I enjoy. Or will enjoy, as I have not had the opportunity to wear the shoes yet.

Still, I should keep in mind Graziat. That is incredible customer service.

Nonetheless both green lantern and blue galaxy patina are amazing.

Gents, anyone with experience in Jimjun, how’d you compare it with AM’s Argentum?

I believe both brands have the insoles stitched to the welt.

please share your thoughts.

Definitely inspired I presume. Probably a one off heel style, but not disappointed with his execution.
its a iteration of the woodsman heel. mostly seen in heritage boots. made popular by Whites, Wesco and Nicks. First time I am seeing it on a dress shoe

The execution is spot on as to what that intended

interesting to know, I’d think this is probably harder to execute that the standard Cuban on a dress shoe
