    I recently purchased a pair of Tods brown driving mocs while I was in Milan, and so far, they are the most comfortable pair of drivers I have worn. I am contemplating getting a second pair, and was thinking about these:

    What do you think of the blue? I think they could be worn in a subtle manner, and aren't as obtrusive as some other colors I have seen, such as white or green. However, they probably don't have the versatility of brown, and furthermore, finding a matching belt seems like it would be tricky.

    Brown belt will be fine with them, especially if it's pebble grain. I do think those would be more attractive in suede.

    I have mocs in blue suede with red contrast stitching. Loved them so much that they were worn to bits. Not a fan myself of pebble leeather, especially with blue. The white and green ones look a lot better.

    How are the soles holding up? The one thing that kept me from purchasing a a pair were the reports of the little trademark Tod's balls being flimsy.

    No problems so far with the soles. I won't think of them as shoes to wear on the IRT however. That what Doc Martens are for.
