Hey, I've been lurking on the thread for years and haven't really shared. 

 

This was my first pair of shell, purchased in 2012. Photo is from a few weeks ago. When I finally came around to purchasing a a "proper" pair of shoes my uncle, who also has many 20+ year old shell shoes in his rotation, impressed upon me the value of both shell and Alden. He also reminded me that my grandfather swore by shell and in particular had a pair of LWB for over 30 years. So one day I simply walked into Alden Madison asked if they had a pair of LWB in shell cordovan, figured out my size, and walked out wearing these. Since then I've picked up a few more : ).

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

 

 

 

Congrats on the Graintrippers, looking great!

 

 

 

Tif! A new ALDEN!!! Congrats! Enjoy those in good health. Those are an interesting mix of formal and casual... :-)

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Buz, those look very good, thanks for sharing!

 

 

 

Don, that was yesterday! ;-) Looking great in your CT Boots (4065s).

Superb Naval Boots. Enjoy them in good health!

Terrific looking Whiskeys. Wow, those have a lot of red for whiskey but look terrific!

 

 

 

Slight contrast there. Lovely 975s!

 

 

 

Those look like they were cut from butter. Looking great my friend! Enjoy them!

 

-Mike

 

 

Thank you for the kind words, gents.

Did anyone here happen to snag that pair??

 

Here you are, Saz! Alden for Jcrew Black shell WT Boot!

 

RTP, I got mine (size 7.5D) for $500 BNIB a few months back! Awesoe deal!
