    why not? i mix them in sometimes for beaters or foul weather shoes. nothing wrong, imo. this is a pretty hard rubber mix. very durable.

    apropos, when ed mentioned something red, i was afraid of this.

    Depending on how one walks, the beautiful brass nail pattern plus leather in the heel can be very slippery. Rubber heel is a good solution here. IIRC, some Lobbs use full rubber heels also.

    Sorry, just have to share AGAIN. I love these, and one day will wear them to a special place. Or, loan to a special art gallery. Sigh, just admire.....

    The order was for cigar cordovan and medium brown suede. However, this cigar colour is different from others posted here and from the cigar offered by Alden. As a colour reference below is a photo of Alden vs Vass cigar.
    Alden Barrie - Vass F - Alden Plaza.
