    If I pulled a Mafoo and decided on the "One Shoe", I think these would be it.[​IMG]


    Is the the regular calf or Italian polish? They look much like my Ladbroke, only nicer.

    Yummy stuff luk-cha! I can't wait for my two pairs of Vass shells to arrive this Fall.

    Would you say saddle is lighter in color than whiskey shell in real life?

    same shade or tonal scale just a difference in base color, whiskey is more yellow saddle is more orange i would not say either is lighter darker
