Lace Up Chukka NOTE: I'm just using these as a broad example; they don't necessarily have to be Alden shoes, or cordovans, or what have you. I have both and am very much inclined to wear the lace up boots with suits and the chukkas with casual wear -...

I'm certainly sure I don't like the pic below...but this is something that happens if you don't use trees and/or wear shoes that don't fit, right? right? ALways use shoe trees! The creasing will still be there but not anywhere near as pronounced as in that photo. I have a number of...

The only place I've found that has my size in stock has the Berkeley in a very desirable colorway (dark oak?) for about 505GBP. Outside of that, can they be had more cheeply? Normally I'd wait for a pair to come along but nothing as of late in a 12/12.5. Thanks I have a number of EG,...
