Slammo- I've seen a lot of TSM seconds, but have never seen anything as severe as that. Box 'em up

Thoughts?  To keep or not to keep...

A little duct tape and those bad boys will be as good as new... facepalm.gif

Just kidding, send them back!!

Currently I am in love with suede.

I think I should get the navy suede.....

Cross posting here since there a couple shell aficionados. But I recieved some some 2nd quality shoes and wanted to get the groups opinion on a small cut in the quarter.





Should this be a cause for concern on getting worse down the road? Thanks.

TBH, if you love Alden suede, you need at least one of each... snuff, tan, and blue.  Brown would be a nice addition also.

HaHa. I agree, but that is $1500 of suede right there! :-O

But I love these Navy Suedes and highly recommend.

Just got these resoled after ~7 years. Suede is well worn down in places, but still my favorite boots.

No doubt my friend.  It is quite expensive.  But if you can build the collection over an extended amount of time, I would recommend a snuff version first.  Tan and/or blue next; and then brown and maybe milkshake or green next.

 

I love snuff! :D
