With the recent cold snap I've been able to get some good wear out of the Daltons. They seem to have broken in very quickly and are already super comfortable.





I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Is that oxblood, Chris? 

post #52551 of 70737
Yes, oxblood with a few light coats of AE neutral shoe polish. I keep telling myself I'll reach for my Shaker Heights one of these days, but I seem to be addicted to these Daltons. happy.gif

Just picked up some brown shell Jeffersons on eBay. Sorry to other SF members that were bidding on these smile.gif I wonder if the seller posts here.

Thanks Peppercorn.  I'm thinking the Leeds looks plain but attractive on that last.

Snuff suede, tan and blue are 199 at Pelle Line. No tax, I believe.

The primary difference is the construction and fundamental design. The Strand is a Balmoral, meaning it has a closed lace box and forms a very tight V from the front. The Sandord is a Blucher and has a more open lace area. The other differences essentially revolve are that difference in design/construction.

So I picked up by GMTO burgundy shell Strands.  They are gorgeous!  Exactly what I envisioned when I proposed this GMTO.  Here they are:

 

 

 

They are VERY dark, but they are burgundy.  I've noticed that AE's burgundy shell has gotten darker over the past few years.  I have seven pairs of burgundy shell - you can see the difference:

 


From l-r:

- Bradley - at least 10 years old

- Lexington - about a year old.  I've also stripped off as much gunk as I can.

- Dalton - Less than a year old.  Stripped off a lot of gunk.

- Leeds - Probably 15 years old.

- Patriot - A couple of years old.

- MacNeil, black trim - 10 years?  NOS.

- MacNeil, natural trim - a year old.  These were sent back after redrafting because they were uneven.  They came back darker than before.

- Strand - brand new.  REALLY dark, almost black.

 

Here are all three pairs of my Strands:

 


Walnut calf, brwon shell, burgundy shell.

I love that new burgundy. Hopefully the color is not just a ton of caked on polish.

They look great guys and I am glad they are dark...as it keeps me from having non buyers remorse ...Love that MacNeil with the natural welt

It looks like some kind of spray finish. I noticed it on some Kenilworths I had done. You can see it was done a little splotchy here. Some of it even dripped over the edge. I lightened this photo considerably to illustrate, but IRL they looked as dark as those strands.

That's really interesting. I am so curious about the new finish, if it makes them more Alden like I am all for it.
