Agreed that they are vastly improved! I have typically used Sno Seal in the past with good results.

my wife and i visited the amalfi coast a few days ago. i did not take or see any aldens, but we did see ravello.
ravello is a small town known for a classical music festival they host every june. its tiny, quaint, with nice views.
well worth the trip.

I went to amalfi last year, but missed out on ravello. Such a beautiful part of this world. Enjoyed drinking limoncello and having pizza with the freshest mozzarella. Amazing how they built all of it and some of the cliff-side homes.post #6875 of 117936/29/16 at 7:19amQuote:
I've done it - I couldn't find anywhere around me that had dovetail heels. B. Nelson work was great, but as you would expect, it was expensive. $65 incl. shipping. a few years ago.post #6876 of 117936/29/16 at 7:23amQuote:
Thanks - I'm in NYC so would save on the shipping. I need to get them replaced on cigar PTBs, color 8 LWBs and my indys. Glad to hear they do a good job on it.post #6877 of 117936/29/16 at 8:09ampost #6878 of 117936/29/16 at 8:13ampost #6879 of 117936/29/16 at 8:16ammy wife and i visited the amalfi coast a few days ago. i did not take or see any aldens, but we did see ravello. ravello is a small town known for a classical music festival they host every june. its tiny, quaint, with nice views. well worth the trip.
We will be there in about a month......can't wait!post #6880 of 117936/29/16 at 8:30ampost #6881 of 117936/29/16 at 8:59am
Is there anyone here owning aberdeen last in calf leather?
Just copped some new dark brown calf aberdeen and I have a little heel slippage and after a few minutes trying
my feet hurt at the tendon and heel, even though the fit is good.
So, two questions:
1. Will the slippage stopp?
2. Is the hurt I feel normal with slip ons at the beginning with very stiff soles?
Thanks all!post #6882 of 117936/29/16 at 9:42amVan last help:
I normally wear an 8 1/2 D. I sized down a half size. I purchased an 8 D. I have a very very small amount of heel slippage. Should I try a 7 1/2? I think the size 8 might be a bit long. Unfortunately I don't have a store in my area to answer this question. Here's a pick of what they look like on.post #6883 of 117936/29/16 at 11:08ampost #6884 of 117936/29/16 at 11:32ampost #6885 of 117936/29/16 at 11:41am
