These are Cigar with an antique edge as per the serial number in the shoes and as advertised when they were sold. Back when I purchased them I didn't know what I wanted, I just pointed, and I think I tried on both #8 and this pair. They look a lot lighter in person than most Cigar and some Ravello i've come across, and these are generally perceived to be Ravello when commented on.  I don't know why they are so much more reddish, lighter, and not as dark olive toned as the Cigar I'm now accustomed to recognizing; but one person did tell me that they could be "old Cigar". In some light they look paler in some light they look browner - I guess that's what Shells all about.

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 : ). 

 


Another winner!  Thanks for sharing, my friend!

A mistake. For some reason I thought you indicated that you had Ravello and Cigar in addition to the whiskeys. Still, really sweet chukkas.

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

 




I remember the limited run of these from a few years back. Its an interesting model - all eyelets, but it has less eyelets than a usual all-eyelet Alden boot. I think a normal Alden boot would have 9 eyelets and this looks like it has 6.

Anyone ever seen that before on an Alden boot?

Looks like 7. I don't think I had ever noticed that before. I guess it's just not as tall as Alden's standard offerings?

Been busy with the new job so haven't had much time to check on the thread. Maybe that's a good thing for my wallet.

Alden is easily my favorite wingtip boot design. I need color 8 and black shell.
