First day wearing the new Tan Cronmoks. They look great, especially in direct sunlight

The Shoebank has daltons in my size in chili, walnut, chocolate, and grey. I'm not keen on the grey but the other three are attractive for $199. I've got bourbon strands, natural distressed McTavish, tan kenwoods, black fifth aves, and brown 1000 mile boots. What would you reccomend?

Get an 8D for the 744's. I've found that the TTS advice on them is bogus. They fit just like my non-cordo 1000 Mile CXL boots.

I love the chocolate but the chili is great as well. Those are the two I would go after but I already have a pair in walnut cordovan.

After seeing the chocolate in person that's what I would go for. Unfortunately there isn't a single Dalton in my size.

Yeah im leaning towards chocolate or chili. Much like when I was buying strands I think the walnut combined with all the detailing is too much flash for me. TT he chili isn't overly red is it?

Thanks! Lexol, Kiwi, brush and rag. I applied a bunch of neutral Kiwi and used a lighter to melt it down, then brush and buff.

 

They're also a couple years old and have been put through the ringer, but are still stiff as hell.

x2. I've been saying this forever. The 721/744/Classics are all the same last/sizing.

After further thought I would go with the chocolate and perhaps acquire a pair of navy laces to switch it up on occasion. I shall email the shoe bank now.....thanks guys.

I had 3 pairs coming from the shoebank today - Rutledge in walnut, LaSalle in chili, and Parkway in grey(don't judge me).  For some reason only the LaSalle came in even though all 3 were on the same tracking, and while it said Chili on the box, they were black shoes inside.  Ugh.

 

I was so excited following the Fedex tracking...what a bummer.

Great Pics rydenfan! (Click to show)

 










 

 

 

I have been torn more than once on purchasing the Alden Naval boot and someday still may. Here is the original USN issue Naval boot with my cappuccino Bayfields.

 

Having spent 20 years wearing the Naval boot the Bayfield seems natural to me. So not a surprise that I ended up with 3 of them, CXL, black calf and shell:

 

3 Cappuccino shell:

And 3 walnut shell. My goal of a shoe, chukka, and boot in each of the AE shell colors is complete for walnut and cappuccino now:

 

So why am I thinking that I HAVE to get a pair of LWB in cappuccino shell next?!

When you finish one quest, it's time to start another.  Congrats on the boots!  I'm jealous.

Agh, the one pair of chocolate daltons in my size are on hold for a customer to look at at the long island store.  Which one of you is it?!

I have the Parkways in grey, I think you'll be happy with them. I wouldn't have paid full retail for them, but they're a great pair of shoes at the Shoebank price. (I was lucky to pick up firsts for $105!)
