Totally agree, thanks. When I got the shoes, I conducted a poll among friends on what laces to wear first lol My cousin and I said orange, right off the bat. This is the first time wearing the orange, but they pop beautifully. I don't own a single piece of orange clothing, and I'm sick of being asked if I'm a whomever fan, but I like the contrastThat might be my fave set up.
These were sold under Churchill’s label. It was Church’s “casual“ brand for a short time in the 1990s. It lasted a few years and disappeared. The laces are original. The sole and uppers are in good shape. I had a cobbler replace the worn heels a few years ago and the red matches well. Otherwise they are holding up pretty well. Probably an excessively large rotation helps! I’ll try to get a few miles on them this year.What kind of laces are those? Original or new? I would like to replace mine.
This one certainly ticks all the boxes. It’s saddle shoe that wants to be a desert boot that wants to be a sandal.
