Like the rest of the internet, I'm obsessed with Feit.  I want to get the Hand sewn low tops in black, but they only have them in black suede for women, and suede just never ages as well as non-split leathers.  The Marine color is great, but I know I'd wear black a lot more.  There's also the Bi-colors that are mostly black with white on the heel.  The hiker boot with the shearling lining would be a good alternative to no. 6's, I've been hoping to find something New England proof without the heel.  So many good choices, it's hard to choose!  I walked by the new ny shop when I was there the other weekend, but they weren't open yet.  I'd love to try them on in person but it might just have to wait until the next trip!
