How about these for DBs? This colour reminds me of a fashion in th UK in the late 50s. Guys called "Teddy Boys". They wore long jacket drape suits with velvet collars, boot lace ties and shoes this colour with really thick black crepe rubber soles (inch and a half thick soles).
The shoes were called "brothel creepers" for some reason.
Anyway the fashion lives on even today, there is an ageing "Teddy Boy" living in my town who has shoes this colour.
Sadly they haven't got my size but I shall get some as soon as they restock.
What do you think?
