Wonder if I'm the only one here who grabbed a Mosley chelsea boot
. A little pricey at the same discounted price as the shells, but I already have the two Marlows I want and something about this boot just grabbed me online. Liked it even better in person. Great grained leather and Vibram sole. Could do without the distressing on the welt, but I don't notice them on my feet.
I got the Marlows in years past in my Alden Barrie/Van/Tru size, minus one half. Had to go a full size down on these.
