    th OE's are on the F last, which IMO is perhap the best round toes last currently in the market - the perfect balance of sharpness and classic lines

    Luk-cha, both the "Arca" and the whiskey shell ones are amazing.

    they are both great. i especially like the natural sole treatment on the first pair. the arca reference might not be too evident for me...

    i have to have some cordovans from vass.

    btw, these are setting the bar rather high for the paprika. it will work out for you.

    Vass porn, you say? I stopped by the shop yesterday and got measured for a boot, so I figure now's a good a time as any for a first post. I never would have heard of them if it wasn't for this forum!
