    My first dance with the Hampton last, and dare I speak too soon, but I'm really liking it.

    Captoe in color King. Maiden voyage.

    Convince me in keeping these Shoemart irregulars?

    Picked these calf Aldens recently. What I like: chocolate color, barrie last/fit great, could be waterlock sole (?), super soft leather, would be a good rainy day shoe (I’m afraid to wear shell when there’s a threat of rain).

    Negs: metal eyelets more of a casual shoe (not for suits?), have 2 other brown/blucher captoes (1 is a 2160 shell), Barrie last may look a little clunky.
    What do all you think?

    9015 is spectacular! Even better with bar lacing. That is one hell of a shine you are displaying. Here is my best, however, it looks as though you've got me beat

    Honestly, I just don't like them. The eyelets and grain of the leather just look cheapish to me.

    Personally, I wouldn't add it as a third brown shoe just to add antoher shoe. I would, however, wear it as a bad weather shoe and put on a Danite sole when the current sole wears out.

    Congrats Sazon. Your 9015s are very classy. These shoes are awesome in black too. If you ever consider a black dress shoe, the 9016 should top the list. wear in good health my friend

    Have any of you had to move a whole size down when buying the Barrie last? I went a half size down on my Indy and longwings but after a year they just seem too wide.
    I'm looking at the navy longwings with brick soul. They look pretty fun and durable.

    Thank you.

    For some reason, the pics I post usually go without compliment. However, this recycled pic always receives praise.

    I must concede that because of the lighting or whatever reason, Sazon's pic exhibits superior depth of shine.





    Quote: Down .5 and 1 width is the only thing that will work for me. Down a whole size was still too wide when I tried it.
