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

Anyone go to B Nelson to replace the heel only on bluchers (dovetail) or indys? Wondering what they charge, how good a job they do and if it would have any effect on going to Alden for restoration down the line.

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.

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.

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.

Gorgeous pictures, @MrDV! Did you hear any of the music festival? If so, which artists?

Still unboxing shoes at the new place so it's been easier as I have been just working with a 4-5 shoe rotation until I get shoe storage sorted out. Of course these are in the rotation.

Hi Gentlemen,

 

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!

Van 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.

The unlined BB loafers are perfection.
