As Laufer points out...

I wouldn't bring light color shell with leather soles into any type of heavy rain, or rain at all, hence why I said these were not necessary, IMO, preference, and rotation.

But I'm not complaing or making an argument

You are right though on storm welt. It does help with waterproofing. It will not keep you feet dry if you stand in the puddle for extended period of time as I did but storm well is better than flat welt against rain.


Did those water spots ever completely go away?

No, but I suppose somebody with more determination would get them out.

Of course they always go away eventually.. People baby shell here way too much. Mailmen wore shell for its inclement weather less pouris properties for a reason. Oh well .. nice looking boots .. don't stand too close to anyone for fear of the dreaded watermark. Kidding, have a nice evening and love the boots..

These can be easily remedied. BTW some cedar trees would help those dogs..

As soon as they make me a Whiskey CT Boot, my C&J will be out the door... ;-)

 

Unfortunately, the C&J is a little wide for my foot.

I think only @mdubs can get his shell looking perpetually new.

How does a mailman wearing shell attest to the marks going away? Or was that just a transition for you to rail about how people choose to wear their boots?

Going to have to agree with you here.  No way in @*&#^$ I'll be taking my whiskey skyes out in inclement weather.  I have other boots for that!

Funny enough, I wore my Whiskey Harlechs (on dainite) out in rainy Portland, Oregon tonight.



Of course, when you valet your car, you're only outside in the rain for about five seconds...

The Whiskey Harlechs arrived yesterday and they look pretty darn fantastic, I think. Personally, I don't mind the storm welt, one reason being that 90 percent of the time when I wear boots I wear them with raw denim, the other 10 percent with chinos.

You need some rad Olive-ish Trousers. Whiskey looks great (to me) with that pairing.

You definitely have a point. They will have to be chinos, though. smile.gif

So, when is that Alden Whiskey shell cap toe boot that you're talking about happening? wink.gif
