Totally understand the concern. I've picked up several color 8 Aldens from the past few years, while the color is certainly darker, it does lighten with wear and sun exposure. IMHO the color 8 shade in general, even in its lighter days, is fine for formal wear. The black edge and sleek plaza last with a flat edge in this design will really make the boot even more appropriate for formal wear.

Great suggestion by Hoit on Whiskey loafers. Actually that one is unlined, it might be even better for Hawaii

Most people may not even realize you're wearing boots.

Wait people wear rare shell?

I saw a pair of 405's the other day and was shocked. We really are outliers in men's footwear.

I haven't posted any pics in this thread in a while, so I snapped a quick one this morning in natural lighting.

 

 

p.s. @rydenfan you'll see these in Wegmans in PA later today. :rotflmao:

Looking good BK! And have a great trip to Wegman's, one of the things I miss about living on the East Coast... :-)

These look incredible! I wasn't a plain toe fan until the Walter boot. I'd love to find a pair in black or color 8 in 9.5!

Yeah I'm just now warming up to plain toes too. Envious of your cigar cap toe boots. Such a great makeup.
