    I think this would be pretty sweet in Navy. I had been thinking about my next project and it might be it

    Never really thought about Split Toes before, but I think the pair on the right may be my next.

    I do like the split toe. What color would you get?

    I definitely want a navy antiqued shoe what style you think would be best?

    Good question, I would probably go with a medium brown color for the split toe, I need another one that color in my shoe wardrobe.

    For Navy, given that it is such a unique color I would think a double monk would look good. Tassels HK sells a pair in Navy that looks great, here are some pics. Here is also a pair in Antique Grey that would work in Antique Navy I think.

    That antiqued grey is beautiful. I'm excited cause that's what my boots are supposed to look like.

    The double monk might be an option. Not sure if I'd do a medallion though.

    Here is a derby in Navy that looks good as well.

    To follow up on the resole situation, here's what I got from Lewis at Bontoni:
    Quote: Though I'm planning on seeing them at Wilkes in a month, I'm leaning towards going with my local guy with some serious oversight. I'll let you know how it goes.

    I guess I'll see what Franco suggests when trunk show happens. Only 1-2 shoes this time around. It takes a nice chunk out of my account haha

    I hear you, let us know what Franco says. I guess the best part of ordering from Bontoni is that no down payment is required so you can order a pair and then save up for five months LOL.

    I have done that before too! Well all this Bontoni talk got me excited so I just placed an order for the Split Toe in a mid brown color. Now that I am back in LA I can't make it to Seattle or SF for the trunk shows so I just emailed in the order. HAHAHA.

    That's great, I can't wait to see your boots, I'm sure they are sweet.

    Yes, I use an SA at Marios in Seattle, I usually just email him my order along with pictures of what I want and he places the order with Lewis (the other owner). Easy peasy.
