    +1 i hope you got it with a goyswer welt too - if not tell him too order it with!![​IMG]

    Just added the G welt. Let's hope you're right! :^)

    I am going to raise Slewy with some patinated saddle shell number. This pair came straight after some creaming and brushing.

    Yummy! Did you use a dark brown shell cream on these as the creases appear darker than the saddle right after brushing? If not I'm guessing the creases just lightened up a bunch over time and darkened even with chestnut color cream.

    I wore these for a good year or so without any maintenance on them. The crease areas lightened as expected, but when I used Saphir shell cream (clear) on them, the creases darkened a tad. I quite like the outcome. There are also other darker spots around the vamp that is visible on close inspection. That's what I call shell patina!

    360 degree for sure.

    Which is something I'm greatly looking forward to!

    The cordovans are great David!

    Just got these from Kolecho last week on the P2 last.


    Thanks tchoy! I actually just ordered the same model except in dark brown suede on the F last with a close cut welt. Hopefully they come out as nice as yours! As we can see, Vass rules.

    They should come out very nice. I much prefer the F last, its more elegant but I have wide feet I wish Vass would make the F last in a wider fitting.

    Wait - the F-last doesn't work for wide feet? I thought that was just the U-last?
