I'm wondering what the soles of those shoes look like.

You mean currently? I must admit that I almost never photograph the outsoles - worn leather looks much like worn leather from pair to pair (and worn Dainite looks like new for a loooong time :) ).

This is how they started:

How about a blue pair that more easily slips into a business wear rotation. Vass asuterity brogues in navy museum - which by some fluke is a noticeably darker than standard and all but bereft of the traditional museum mottling.

Amazing? Yes! Wearable? Not by me. :(

Replace that lovely olive hide, with a cloud grey hide, and then it might be something.

Possible answer to the question, what shoes do Veyron drivers wear? :D

While I agree that the color combination you suggest is a vast improvement of the pair pictured, the pair pictured, even with the olive hide, does have a certain allure to that pair. :icon_scratch:
