    Leather Slippers anyone?

    While reading the reviews about the Town View leather moccasins on their website, I read on review that said he was able to order a custom size with a custom color thread. I thought a custom colored thread would be cool so I emailed them to inquire about the availability of that option. I...

    Leather Slippers anyone?

    I was looking at these Town View moccasins many years ago but never pulled the trigger. Instead, I bought a pair of the LL Bean flannel-lined slipper with a rubber sole as opposed to a leather sole. The owners of Town View Leather, Galen and Gayanne Wintle have been producing these quality...

    Sperry Topsider and Mink Oil

    Another pair of Sperry Topsiders got the mink oil treatment. These are a 12-15 year old pair of Gold Cup Topsider ASVs. These provide a bit more of a cushion than the AO Topsiders. These provide a bit more comfort for when you may be walking around rather than hanging around.

    Sperry Topsider and Mink Oil

    Hey you sons of Badgers, if you have a pair of older Sperrys and you also have some mink oil... Go and get them. They are thirsty. 😀 The shoe pictured on the left after a nice coat of mink oil. The one pictured on the right is parched. These Sperrys are about 5 years old and have never been...

    Jack Purcells by Converse. What a shame.

    Sometimes, you just have to take matters into your own hands. Drove about 10 miles to post office in next town to pick these Clydes up. I couldn’t bear the thought of them going back 3000 miles in the wrong direction. I must say that the leather is very soft. I am pleased with the fit and...

    Jack Purcells by Converse. What a shame.

    That’s unfortunate. I just found out that my Puma Clydes are heading back to Puma. Apparently, the numbers in the zip code all have to be in order. 😃 I ordered them on 5/3 and Fedex has been messing around with this package for over 3 weeks and forget getting any response from customer...

    Those Spezials look great. Very similar to the Gazelles except for the gum rubber outsole. Enjoy.

    Jack Purcells by Converse. What a shame.

    The Onitsuka GSMs (GSM stands for Game. Set. Match) came in today and went right back To Zappos as they were WAAAY too narrow which seemed to be a prevalent issue in the reviews I had read. I re-laced them to try and widen them a tad and could have gotten away wearing them without socks but...

    Jack Purcells by Converse. What a shame.

    Ordered the “Clyde” from Puma on 5/3. Still awaiting their arrival. :whistling: I am also awaiting the arrival of a pair of GSM’s from Onitsuka Tiger. I think I’m in the throes of a sneaker acquisition disorder (amongst many other disorders) while I’ve been working from home. 🤪🙄 O The...

    AE Macs are truly classic. And the AE Chili is one of the best.

    Fixing a keyfob for a '97 BMW 740i

    Agreed. I usually drive 300 miles per week for work but we went to a “work from home” protocol since mid-March so I’m at least 2400 miles behind my normal pace. I’ve also redirected the gasoline savings to Glen Livet 15 and Angel’s Envy.

    Converse has wide sizes available on their website. 👍 Now the 990’s.... hmmm. 😀

    Jack Purcells by Converse. What a shame.

    Man, I can’t believe Converse sold out of all the Pro Leather Limited Edition series. I signed up for the newsletter. Not gonna miss out again when they do another run (the Pro Leather series was previously released in Dec of 2019). They have some colors left but nothing I’m interested in.

    Benton's Bacon. Damn!

    Jack Purcells by Converse. What a shame.

    Now... only if I could find a pair. The Lavers used to do a blue/white set-up as well as green/white. Should’ve grabbed a pair when I had the chance. Too busy chasing Ravello shell cordovan. :lol:

    I was thinking more this set-up which luckily for me is sold-out. 😀
