Among every other model of shoe, the Adelaide is definitely one my top favorites. Almost a whole cut, but not quite, it allows for the wearer to play with coloring, as you will find that the top piece on the facing is usually made up of something that contrasts, weather it be the color or the material. This pair here by Septieme Largeur, is an example of the MTO patina service that they offer, allowing for customers to customize their shoes. Not a very daring color contrast presented here, but an elegant and complimentary one nonetheless. It’s always a pleasure to see what the customers of SL have been ordering, as they seem to be a daring bunch that love to own multi-colored shoes, much like I do. While I still never see people wearing them, it’s at least nice enough to know that they are buying them. If you ever end up getting a pair from this company in contrasting colors, please send me a pic so that I can see what you have come up with.
Enjoy the weekend,
