    The last of my recent shoe purchases came today:
    H.S. Trask "Aaron" sneakers in navy suede, with Guarded Goods flat waxed laces in "sapphire" I swapped in.



    Really well made using think, soft C.F. Stead suede and fully leather lined with sidewall stitched sole. Came with your standard 8mm navy laces, but swapped them out for a pair of flat waxed laces. A couple shades lighter than the shoe, but I love the neater look the narrower 6mm laces give and don't mind the slight contrast.

    Also, here's the above Frye sneakers with brown waxed laces swapped in.

    FedEx Easter bunny delivered the Sneaker version several days early!! (Please excuse the lizard legs).



    Here they are next to the slip on version from above:



    Looks kinda like a football with the cream laces. I've got some brown waxed laces from Guarded Goods on the way (my go to for all my laces).

    Just got these new Italian made Frye slip on sneakers.



    Really nice, thick full grain leather, leather lining and removable leather lined insole plus dust bag. Sidewall/channel stitched to a Margom sole. Not too shabby for only $44 shipped. Definitely a keeper and I've already got the lace up version on the way.

    Thanks guys. I was kinda on the fence, but BR is decent quality at this price point (~ $70) I think, and as I said been meaning to branch out beyond brown shoes (although I guess it's a moot point while we're all stuck indoors).

    A good looking shoe.

    I think those shoes look pretty good. Makes me wish I had picked up a pair - in brown - too.

    I'm curious how these turned out. Did you end up keeping any?

    Well I figured I'd work my way up to it, next up is paskettio's (with meatballs of course).
