    then you should have just done it without the cap but a faux cap then or have a look at the G&G hanly as a concept
    I get your point, but, to me, a faux toe cap is aesthetically unpleasing. I much prefer the design as it is.

    Beautiful! Who is the maker?
    A local shoemaker.

    These are elegant. Less is more. Like the squarish toe in suede - it's unusual.

    I really like the style Luk-Cha, just without the triple welt. My preference would be a double leather sole with a storm welt
