post #106126 of 122416

About to make the jump on a pair of No. 8 Shell Chukka's BNIB for around 500, is this a good deal? These will be my first pair of Alden's and first pair of shell (and most expensive pair of shoes I've ever bought.. Still only 20 and in college but still)  Any advice?  I see a lot of shell on this forum but almost never see a pair of chukka's, is there something I'm missing?

$500 for a pair of BNIB shell chukkas is a great deal. Just make sure they are first quality. Is they are subs (or seconds) you are paying too much.

They are not subs, they are j crew for alden, have no wear at all and no r stamped at the bottom.  i have received extensive pictures and the shoes come new in bock with plastic bags and alden dust bags.

And theres no reason why they aren't particularly popular on this forum?

I've seen quite a few shell chukkas on here, actually. I'm not sure how far back you have been looking, though.

Pretty far back, I've only ever seen whisky or revello and thats more for the rarity of the leather than the chukka itself.

Well I wouldn't worry about that. There are a ton of members here that don't post pics, too. 

 

If you like them, buy them. There is nothing "wrong" with them or nothing you are missing.

We definitely have love for shell chukkas. I think they are super versatile and display #8 shell with the best of them. I almost purchased some as my first Aldens, but I knew my Grail was what I really wanted. So I patiently waited until the opportunity presented itself. Due to your sense of uncertainty I would advise you to hold out for what you want. If that's shell chukkas, buy those for a great value. If you are just buying those to satisfy an itch caused by another model; however, hold out.

I'm thinking my next Alden will be chocolate suede unlined chukka!

Yeah didn't realize you would be sending the full can.  If you're willing to put some in another container to send out I'd take some.  Otherwise, no worries!

Devils advocate:

 

Or maybe he realized how badass a pt can be based on your Walter Boot pic. I'm regretting grabbing a pair of Walter boots and that i missed the RydanBoot, based on your pic.
