Enjoy your new LHSs. I miss them already!

PSA: I have two pairs of LHS's that I may be interested in parting ways with. One is a 9D Whiskey shell and the other is a 9.5D Ravello shell - both on the van last. I love the way they look but my collection has gotten so out of control that they barely see any wear these days. Original box and bags included, purchased from TSM.

Happy hump day fellow SF'ers. While waiting for the arrival of my Alpine grain Barrie last long wings with commando sole, I console myself with the arrival of NOS Hanover long wings. Made in USA, these are some really nice quality shoes that I can recommend to those who venture into other vintage. I posted a company history and comparison with another long wing of that same era on the vintage thread. You can see it by clicking here if you have an interest in that sort of thing.

Maybe it is the outdoor sun, but those have a really nice #8 color in contrast with the almost black appearance one sometimes encounters. Those are sweet.

Was in NYC over the weekend with my wife and passed by the AoM store on our way to lunch on Monday. Didn't stop in, but was cool to see the store in person

First time poster, not-so-long-time lurker in this thread. Have been an AE fan for a decade but recently was exposed to other options-including Alden. Here are my first pair, Snuff suede Dovers. I have three pairs in order from Leffot and can't wait to get more. Waiting on #8 PTB with crepe sole, Tobacco chamois LWB on commando and, the one I really can't wait for, #8 LWB with antique edge.

Also, just found out I like boots with purchase of an AE Higgins Mill, so looking I'm looking forward to adding a Black Shell Indy soon.

Thanks all for the great info in this thread.

For those with experience using Alden's restoration--does the conditioning process include a re-dye of shell cordovan #8 to the extent that it will add pigment and can help even out mismatched coloring between shoes or splotches/streaks on one shoe?

If so, is the result much darker than the original?

Base on my experience, Yes, they are gonna re-dye it and the shoes are gonna be darker, you may interest in the restoration review that I wrote up
