post #316 of 10592

I know they are not Alden but I would pay good money for the EG Shannon in cognac shell.

 

Vass Valway in Cognac.

 

GG Canterbury in a lighter cordovan shade.

 

Alden, I would like to have some of these unicorns in my stable that fit me properly.  Ravello wingtip boot would cause me to pay a premium.

Just received my Shoe Mart seconds...................Color 8 hand sewn boot............The only odd thing I notice is the footbed of the right shoe seems a little raised in the toe area.....kind of like a ridge almost where my toes meet my foot. I'm guessing the cork would compress and conform to my foot shape after a few wears, but would appreciate any advice from someone who knows more than me. I've never encountered this before, and I definitely don't want to wear them until I'm sure this is not the actual defect in the shoe. Thanks!

Maybe I'm crazy and in the minority here but I love the spotting within the shell on the right boot! Wish they were my size...

Its gonna take more than a few wears. You can always try a bandaid in the toe area.  Also, when they recraft them, you can tell the cobbler to put less cork so that it will depress further. However, that's gonna be a while.

thanks cool arrow. It's more like it is just a bit lumpy......and only the right boot....no pressure from the sides or top of the shoe. I'll call Shoe Mart tomorrow...........I really want to keep these boots........

More rarities:

Ravello shell cordovan medallion cap toe blucher on the plaza last with antique edge:

I don't think I've ever seen these, even though they were supposedly made for the DC shop recently (2013). I've only seen the Cigar versions from mdub's photos. Size 8.5.

Mine were Ravello... :-) Just a darker shade... They are indeed done by Alden DC...

That posting leverages both my pictures and my description! I guess plagiarism is the best form of flattery...
