    hi all. i also picked up these bad boys off the irregular list .... cigar v-tips! however, although the email stated that these were on the barrie last i'm pretty certain after trying them on that they are actually on the modified last. i consider myself to have a neutral gait so i was just wondering if anyone on this board who also has a neutral gait and owns a pair of shoes on the modified last could tell me their experiences with this last? to me, it feels as if there is too much arch support and i don't think the "break in" method will allow me to ascertain how my foot muscles will feel after walking in them over the course of an eight hour day. i'd really hate to have to return these beautiful shoes [​IMG] [​IMG]

    my alden irregular natural chromexcel indy boots in 11.5 d came in today. there is nothing irregular about them, except how irregularly awesome they are.

    That was fast. They look great... very tempting!

    Suede wingtips on commando showed up today from LSBH. From their spring clearance.
    Light suede and commando is a slightly odd combo but I like the look.


    I like these. Versatile casual shoes. Commando sole is good. Nice grab.

    These could be seconds from the LS run of cigar v-tips awhile back. Do they have a single oiled sole on them? Here's the linkā€¦http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/201...rie-v-tip-lsw/

    as much as people want to tell me that this is normal, it's really bothering me. This is a Whiskey LWB worn 4 times. It looks like it's 2 tone.

    They look great- kind of a spectator look - the way they wear in is the beauty of shell, imo. You'll pay big $ to get EG's or G&G's mto in two tones.
