    I love tan (aka walnut etc.) shoes above all else. What are your favorite tan shoes? Or even...what tan shoes do you wear? Please post pics.

    I think of Walnut as a darker color than Tan.

    I'd like to get a pair of tan loafers for summer loafin'.

    I don't agree. The two pairs (above) are both 6 years old. Tan cream polish and every now and then some tan wax and they look great.


    in short: beautiful to look at new, a pain to maintain

    I have these two. Neither of the pictures are mine, though. The RL Horatio loafers are much nicer IRL. Mine are on their second sole. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Doubt you will last long around here.......[​IMG]



    oh god another porn thread.

    Cant you guys just do some googling, say "Edward green tan shoes" . All this stuf is out there

    I must say it takes a special kind of person to:

    1) Read post in forum
    2) Get his shoes out of the closet,
    3)Photograph them,
    4) move pics to computer (well most of the times),
    5) Upload the pics to an image hosting site
    6) make a post on this thread

    Would anyone engage in such an exbitionit behaviour in any other avenue of his life without breaking the law- after they all don't call it porn for nothing

    Thumbs down from me
