    yeah I would say so. They taccos insole is already fairly thin however if you want it even thinner, simply remove the 1mm foam padding on the underside by pealing it away from the leather insole.

    Much appreciated. I would take a pair of those LWB on the modified in a second if they were offered here in the U.S.

    Thanks, it is still quite humble compared to many on here. Not sure yet. I need to collect my thoughts on everything I have (including various pre-orders) and then make a determination as far as what I have and what I am actually wearing.

    I know I am likely in the minority but the modified last does nothing for me. I find the toe box on the longwing to look very bulbous and the shape is reminiscent of a clown shoe to me

    Very nice. I thought they only sold the snuff suede LWB. Is it new?

    Ryden I definitely understand the sentiment, and I completely agree with you on certain models but on others I think they look very cool. And comfort wise they work very well for me, and seems to be the consensus for people like me with full forefoots and narrow heels.

    I picked up a pair of black shell LWB off the seconds list a while back, and Im glad I was able to get them. And Ive got some natty CXL SWB from moulded that get quite a few compliments

    I will say I tried on some straight tips in calf at moulded and lets just say I didnt get them, I also got the same feeling from the NST

    V-tips however, look good to me particularly the shell version - I cant explain it, maybe its shell fever

    As of this moment, it looks like there is one pair of Color 8 Tanker Boots in 8D available on Leffot's website.
