I'm glad to see the character of worn shoes, too. Although I've seen the pics of Yachtie's worn shell Alden's several times now, I still am thrilled every time I stroll down the thread and see them. The character of the shell creases is a real treat to my eyes.

With that said, I do enjoy seeing shoes fresh out of the box or very gently and infrequently worn. However, I enjoy seeing the well worn ones, too.

No kidding, I can't remember this happen. Must be over ten years ago. But I really make up my mind occassionally. Some I like and some not. Life is too precious to be bothered either way.

Edward Green for Cole-Haan (eBay purchase January 07).

Produced mid-80s (extremely low number: 3955); last 202, size (American) 9½ C



Soles still original, but getting a bit thin, due for refurbishment at EG soon.

Missed this - they're just too old to have any legible markings. They're probably English, though.

Alden Whiskey Shell Cordovan after three years of heavy use:

Paul Stuart shell cordovan

Alden cordovan

Polo Darlton cordovan

EG for Asprey plaintoe bluchers. Tough to keep the toe shiny and not have polish crack off the vamp. I may have to strip these and start over.

Another of the same thing

Lattanzi for Asprey plaintoe bluchers. Pretty conservative eh?

EG for Asprey city boots
