I was planning on making a standalone post and cross posting it everywhere later, but since this thread is on topic, here goes: Moulded Shoe
has a unique pair of shell boots that someone should buy. They are Alden, Norwegian Split Toe ankle boots (I didn't count, but probably around 8 or 9 eyelets) in No. 8 shell with the combination crepe sole (with leather tip) on the Barrie last in size 8E. I think they also have a storm welt though I don't remember. These are unique and are the only pair left over from a small special order run some years ago. They would be perfect cold weather boots and I would get them in a second if they fit me. I have admired them every time I go in the shop but as they have been making me envious I though I might as well help Moulded get rid of them. Their number and address is on the website
. I don't know how much they cost or whether Moulded Shoe
will ship or accept returns. Stop in, or call and ask for Ronnie as he will know exactly which boots I am talking about, though I suppose so will anyone else who answers the phone. Imagine this No. 8 shell boot:
with the crepe sole and the apron and toe stitching of this shoe:
and you will have the idea.
