I wear 13D and I think what you're saying is correct.  I have no issues with any other leather sole versions wearing like this.  Only commando.

 

See Ya,

Hey guys, I accidentally over-creamed my 405's with Alden's neutral cream and now that they are dry you can see a layer of dried cream on top.   Is there a good way to remove this excess cream?

my vote would be for the WT boot. very versatile. 2nd would be the Indy.

I really dislike the tanker/split toe look. I am somewhat surprised at the amount of love it gets here.

I felt that way about the Indy...never understood why off center, non symmetrical stitching appealed to anyone...bordering goofy looking...of course now I have 4 pairs of Indy's....and the NST tanker boot was love at first site for me.

Alden NST is one the best designs and get a lot of love not just on SF. No surprises here but we do all have different tastes.

I thought the same thing initially. I've since done a 180 in thinking, plus, I typically get a lot of compliments on the tanker.

Same here. #8 tanker boot (barrie last) is my favourite #8 boot make-up, #8 Perf Cap toe by Jcrew comes right behind.

So i guess the move would be use multiple credit cards and have them shipped to work....

Lexol should get it off easily

I don't know of any retailer offering any right now but you might want to contact Leather Soul and see if they have any plans of offering it in the future and if you can get on their list. They had that makeup a couple years ago and occasionally repeat their make-ups.

Is that a credit thing or wife avoidance tactic? I agree with the tanker choice, especially given the rest of your collections.
