    Those look like some burly Japanese heels.

    X-post from shoe porn. Old shoe (well, shown here before in any event) but new pics that I think capture the colours a little better.

    A dark sleek round whole cut with 5 (golden?) metal eyelets and flat laces, great idea!. what about this one you posted in the Japanese thread? [​IMG] This is the first double strap shoe I've seen that avoids the ugly (imo) fat crossing flap.

    Beautiful shoe and colours, I would prefer it without the goyser, but nitpicking.

    What would be the quintessential NST color? I may order one that actually fits this time and was thinking to do something different than the whiskey? Any thoughts?

    I don't think I'd ever get sick of the color I ordered: whiskey shell. I think anyone who sees this shoe should agree and wouldn't want to sell :devil:

    Rather than the colour, I would worry about the last and leather, I ordered mine in the Peter last and cognac scotchgrain. I hated it, It was boring and creased ugly. I would go for a sleeker last in a darker color to put some edge on them, single sole.

    Will prob do these on P2, I have them on F and they look great, but I think P2 is the way to go for NST

    Just curious to know, which Saphir creme/wax do owners of Vass Oxblood shoes use? If not Saphir, which brand/colour? Thanks in advance.

    My OEII Oxblood are still in production, and should be on their way soon [​IMG]

    Still available on an MTO I guess...I'd seen this model before, and if you look carefully at the suede section it reminded me of a woman corset (with mega wide hips)....
