My small (but growing) family:



Back row, left to right, all #8 but dark due to poor lighting: Indy on Plaza from Frans Boone, chukkas (my first Alden), Alt Wien from Epaulet, LWBs
Front row, left to right: Ravello NST from TSM, snuff suede chukkas, tan suede chukkas, Ravello LWBs from AoC

I live abroad but usually go to the US once a year around Christmas, so this time four green boxes were waiting for me - the Ravello NSTs (finally!), the Epaulet Alt Wiens and the two suede chukkas. (There are shoe trees for the chukkas, I promise, just not where I took this picture.)

Nice, Mike

I just picked up the 4060 to complement my 4065 (my most worn Alden boot). Can't wait to break it in. Photos this weekend.

Thanks Albi! Coincidentally, I just got the 4065 on Wednesday, so I have now completed my Cap Toe Boot collection, I have it in every main shade of Shell (Whiskey is from C&J though, and Navy is from AE, but someday I will get them converted to Alden's). Looking forward to seeing your photos bud!

Tommy, you have a terrific collection going on there. I was wondering why your Ravello NSTs were unworn. I thought that we had another @tifosi on our hands, but your explanation makes sense... Enjoy your 4 new green guys!!!!

Welcome to the forums sir!

Would you mind expounding upon your latest acquisition of the NST boot? Am I interpreting your post correctly in that you aquired those new this year? ...I thought they haven't been produced again for years! Congraduations either way!

When I wish upon a shooting star it's always a toss up of three things: world peace, ending global hunger, and Alden Ravello boots.

Hey! I wore a pair of previously unworn boots, today, for your information @mdubs. They just weren't Aldens!

The latest of Ravello NST was delivered in about Feb. of this year. I believe the OP said he only gets to the US once per year.

I knew it..the only way to get these boots is by going back to the future! ;)

 

Thank you for the info.

A fantastic looking LWB from Dublin.

 

 

 

Your Black Lady's are looking superb my friend. Enjoy your boots and snow!

 

 

 

Looking good in your classic 990's. +1 for the Apple Argyles.

 

 

 

Reppie, your Brownvellos SF are looking very terrific, good color in that photo. Your Crews were looking good as well yesterday...

 

 

 

They go up a few bucks each February.

 

 

 

Your Suede collection is rather impressive. Enjoy them in good health!

 

 

 

Your Color 8 Tankers are looking superb my friend. Keep dry.

 

 

 

@bl@ster, I knew that you would love Yenni's makeup.

 

 

 

Your Cigar WT Boots are looking superb, darn, I need to get mine out.

 

 

 

Your Whiskeys are looking good my friend. I love the Whiskey PTB personally, it is my favorite PTB.

 

 

@MrVenneri, your Whiskey LWBs and CHUPs were looking great, Shockwave did not want me to quote you as it locked up Chrome twice.

 

-Mike

 

thanks for the kind words gentlemen.

Chip, get them next time.

Wet day here on the desert. AoM #8 that looks like Cigar ... Tanker, Antiqie Storm Welt. Heavy Ribbed BB All Cotton Tan Crew Sock, Orvis Flannel with some leather detailing, and of course 501's.

Outstanding boots. Great photo.

They don't always photograph well, but I think it's a lovely style, especially in Whiskey.

 

Sweet ptbs. I think they really showcases shell cordovan. My ravello on commando is one of my favorite pairs. Good luck with that cigar pt boot.
