Anyone want a good deal on a pair of lightly used Alden x Context Color 8 Tankers in 7E?

 

The antique definitely makes them more casual, but that's perfect for my office environment.

How is the shade of #8? is it on the black side?  If anyone is unhappy with their size 12 or 12.5 in this boot let me know....

Question for those who use Alden Leather Defender-how often/when do you use it? Does it affect your shells at all if you use it often?

 

I've had a bottle for a couple of years but since I try not to wear shell cordovan when it's raining out, I haven't really applied it. Should I be?

I use it 2 - 3 times/yr and find no ill affect on my shell

Turns out they don't have my size so no loss.  I just stared at my Tankers and love that they actually look like tanks.

PSA: Forgot to mention that Alden Madison mentioned that they are getting in black shell Tankers in about a month in case anyone is interested.

I wish someone would do them with an antique edge trim instead of black. I would purchase instantly

That would be great

 

I have an old pair of black shell AE leeds that I am going to get redone by B Nelson with as close to antique trim as poss perhaps even towards the slightly lighter side. Just can not decide if I want commando style sole or not.

That does sound pretty damn nice. Lost & Found should do one since they already do a version in lady calf.

 

Black Shell plain toe boot with antique trim on Barrie with commando soles. I do not own any black shoes/boots but this would seriously make me consider it. Similar to the Blackbird Milkman boot but with antique trim.

 

 

 

 

Edit: Here we go but needs commando soles, theses are awesome.

Cigar LWB or #8 Tankers. Impossible to decide.

These are so awesome. I know it runs against the consensus here but I think these would look great with a suit, even a more conservative one.
