    I am also in if we go light antique edge trim. Waterloc double sole would be my preference but open to other sole options.

    I have both and if I could only keep one, it would probably be the snuff suede. The Kudu us great but I just get much more wear from the snuff suede LWB, especially in the spring and summer. However, the Kudu are pretty indestructible and there is no weather condition in which I would be apprehensive to wear them.

    That's an outstanding price. Agree about the fine nap suede. Suede on the milkshake Indys is a fine nap as well.

    Quote: I have a pair of these from the first order of these. Great looking shoe. You are paying a bit more for these than the standard color 8 lwb, but the antique edge plays up the casual wear of this shoe, which I found desirable. Leffot is a pleasure with which to deal.

    What I have found myself doing is wearing my Brooks Brothers balmoral color 8 wingtips with suits while wearing the color 8 longwings more casually and with the odd trousers. The standard color 8 longwing is outstanding as well, but the antique edge gives the Leffot (and similar) versions a great pop with casual wear.

    Awesome shot. Great combo. You should get yourself a wheelchair so you can go about your day and not have to move from that position!
