Lace Up Shoes

Ps Paul Smith Laced shoes

Great shape, color and style. Rubber sole low life span

yucaseca

Pros: Slim, comfortable, dress up or down. eye catcher.

Cons: the rubber sole has a very short life span and is not repairable. Once you wear out the heal they are trash.

I kind of wish they came in standard leather sole with English heal. Fun while they lasted. That said if I found a pair on sale for no more than half the price, I would buy them again. Taupe color is the best.

Alden Ravello Shell Long Wing Blucher

“This shoe polishes up very quickly.  Before work, I lightly brush the shoe and buff it with an old t-shirt and it's ready to go.  The shoe feels a little stiff until it warms up.  After warming up, it is extremely comfortable.  Style wise, the only thing I would have changed is the edge trim to antique.  When the shoe needs to be resoled someday, I will ask Alden to...” --ppith

“   I took my wife to visit my brother in the bay area recently.  I specifically set aside part of a day to visit the Alden Shop in San Francisco.  When I went in the store, they measured my feet and gave me a few different sizes to try on in a plain black oxford style lace up shoe.  After they figured out my size in that last (not sure what last it was?), I had them take...” --ppith
