Thanks, guys. I think I've really been bitten by the Alden bug. I have been lusting after some cordovan Aldens for a while now, but could never bring myself to buying a pair. Keep in mind, up until now, I've mostly worn sneakers and Cole Haans that I get on sale for $100. I think most guys looking to "up" their shoe game start out with something a bit more reasonable like calf AEs, but I really went overboard!! :rotflmao::rotflmao:

They are definitely Cigar from that odd run that Kathy randomly received. This is this exact pair.

Do you guys know if the Saphir cordovan cream is meant to be used in lieu of reno or any other conditioner? It seems like it's meant to be an all-in-one type of product.

Howdy. I just picked up a pair of 403 Chromexcel boots. I've commonly sized out as a 9.5 4E. Ordered 9.5 EEE from Shoe Mart, felt slighty clunky. Ordered 9 EEE, which feels okay, but perhaps too big outside of the width.

 

My real concern: my upper ankle / lower calf (whatever you call that area) is totally blasted from wear. Developed some painful red marks which are now really sensitive to the boot's touch. Is this temporary? Do I need socks that totally clear the boot height? How tight should I be lacing up the top?

 

Starting to think I've made a huge mistake :P Any help much appreciated!

I'd buy some socks that extend past the boots. Also, I'd probably leave the boots slightly loose until the leather softens up a bit, which shouldn't take more than a few wears.

I've been debating those the last few days, but the medallion on the Plaza last version from ShoeMart looks kind of off to me.  Looks incomplete towards the front of the toe and also a bit like an illustration of the female reproductive system you'd see in an anatomy text book.  The medallion on the Aberdeen? last version above looks much better to me:

Based on those photos, I still find the Plaza much better.

I think the Plaza one looks sweet.

Both the CHUPs and the Whiskeys are looking superb together. That CHUP pattern is great.

If you're a 12D in Barrie and interested in these rare shell colors (which are IMO the "old" colors, especially Ravello), PM me! I'll likely make a B&S post next week.

Sorry for the shameless ad but it's rare shell...

Sorry to hear that. Hope that they find a good home!

Went Tan Suede LHS and belt today. Hope that you all had a good and safe Saturday!

post #1499 of 10714

Looking good, Mike. 

 

I'd like to pick up some LHSs, but I think I'd really need to try them on in person. I like loafers, but they don't seem to like me (flat feet). :(

Thanks.  No, this is the boot version of the 2145... similar alt wien design but on the aberdeen last.  They were originally made for Tassels in Hong Kong, but Kathy in DC ended with them.  Also, they are Cigar shell.
