Crooked lace flaps on the right boot?

Will heck, I may need to return!  I guess you gotta be careful what you ask for, right!

 

The sole extension (or the width of the welt/edge) that extends all the way around the boot, is a little wider than normal, especially for the left boot.  It is a bit substantial, but I am not worried about it at all.  Very happy and appreciative of Adam's thorough customer service and quality control.

I know member wildstar had them. Im sure he posted some pics at some point.

Edit. That was terrible advice. I couldn't find a damn thing.

I personally would take those as firsts, but I am not exactly sure what I am even looking for...

One of the best things of buying from Adam, is he will take good care of you and will ensure that they are of primo quality. He tops every other vendor in that department. Enjoy them Repp!

Shawn, enjoy your new casual attire.

Here is a pic that sold me on adding them to my want list, you can see the original oiled look along the wings but the nappy red flesh coming out in other areas. They will age beautifully and congrats on the purchase!

Sazon, I have 2 pics in my photo album of my black wingtip boots broken in and side by side with my Brixtons and Cigar Indys, but they aren't on my feet. Feel free to browse that folder under my profile. I'm also planning on taking a few new pics tomorrow so I could add that shoe to the mix.

Thanks, bud. I'm a huge fan of the wingtip boot. I've got pairs in black, color 8, Natty CXL, and I'm expecting Ravello from Alden Madison in the next month or so. Great boot.

Do yourself a favor and buy a pair in black. Now. I promise you won't regret it.

That was me and those were the boots I posted yesterday. Glad I could simplify the decision for you.
Funnily enough, when I was deciding on black, commando boots it was between the ones you just received from AoC or the Leffot. Obviously we know my decision.
Enjoy those beautiful boots!

A few months ago in Ebay, there was a BNIB black shell wingtip boot, Alden for J Crew, f360' flat welt on double leather for $525 (size 10D).  I can not believe I let this slip through my hands!  If I hadn't gone with these cap toe boots on commando, I would still be kicking myself!  I missed out on a great boot!

 

Did anyone here happen to snag that pair??

Lol...  great minds think alike.  I was actually leaning toward the shell boots, but I had so many here recommending the grain Trippers.  I think part of me was subconsciously delaying the decision in hopes that someone would snag that last pair at Leffot, which would then open the door to my newest acquisition from AoC.

 

It all worked out in the end (for both of us)!  Enjoy them my friend!
