    Sort of...


    I love G&G's innovation and quite apart from any "gimmick effect" that might be imported by the seamlessness and single visible stitch, I think these look really nice. Those black shoes remind me of something Tony was wearing in an old post on the Leffot blog. (Those were brown Balmorals: http://blog.leffot.com/wp-content/up.../dsc_07153.jpg (English sense of the term as opposed to Adelaides). Thes eaint bad either: http://blog.leffot.com/2011/02/25/gg-magic/ J

    Balmoral and adelaide are not synonymous.
