Mike-I love those BB Black WT!  I have them in #8 and they are a nice make up!

Both of those are excellent examples of Whiskey shell.

Here are the boots before I gave them some polish and brushing:

 

 

After:

 

 

 

 

I like the shine but I just want the natural beauty of the color 8 to show through. I'm going to try some reno and then neutral polish.

I'm sure you'll get another shot. $455 is a pretty good price for a rare shoe. The shoes weren't in bad shape but the rolls probably turned some people away.

Blaster, you did very well with those my friend. Do not be shy to get some non-shells from Alden now and then! :-D The Plaza Last just makes those killer!

Ha! Thanks! I have had these now for 3-4 years, gotten some decent wear out of them. I can usually get them looking pretty clean, but I just can not get my feet into them without putting of all the rolls back in! Gah!

Yesterday... Alden x Brooks Bro Black Shell Wingtips on the M-75 Last.

 

 



 

Today. Alden Color 8 Chukka Boot (from Alden DC)... These were my second Aldens and the creased toe on the left boot is why I no longer use my foot parking brake if I don't absolutely have to anymore...

Just further fuels my anxiety about moving to a 5spd soon. Guess some drivers will be in my future.

 

Ha! I have gone through my manual days and now drive an automagic. As I drive in quite a bit of traffic, it helps relieve the stress...

Looking good in your Chukka boots. I will only say it because I took a lot of slack on my jeans, but you may want to consider getting some higher end jeans to complement your beautiful Chukkas. ;-)

Looking great in your Snuff Perf Tip Boots will, I really like Suede too, but have to resist at work as it just doesn't go well with dress clothes... :-)

I would have advised commando but I love your boots anyway (I owned both commando and leather soled boots and the commando is incredibly useful in NYC winters)

I also have a special delivery coming today from the west coast! Can't wait. Wish I had sent them to the office. Between Aldens, Epaulets, and car parts this week I'm having a hard time keeping track.

What kind of car parts?! smile.gif
