I want to get some suede PTBs for the spring and summer, but would rather not have to take them off every time I'm going through the TSA pre security line (2-4 times a week for the next couple months). Note: Because I have the TSA pre security clearance I don't need to take my shoes off at most airports. 


The best thing to do, if possible, is ask for the full body scanner (if you are okay with that).  I find the TSA is good about allowing it, especially if you tell them you have steel shanks.

And a maiden voyage for these today. My first Alden saddles and bals; they were hard to resist at $225 brand new.

Super nice!

Thanks for all the advice guys. I'm thinking I'll keep using my Loake Kemptons for flight day and rotate the Aldens on other days unless I'm going through and airport that uses the full body scanner more.

These came in on Monday, finally wore them today. They were a Ravello shortwing run for Leather Soul back in 2013? Direct sunlight they have a red-ish tint to them, is that normal for Ravello?

Amazing! You just bought those!??

Looking for more sizing help... if I'm between an 8.5D/E on Brannock, an 8E on AE's 5-last, and a UK7.5 on Carmina's Rain last, would 8D on the Barrie last fit me? 

 

Thanks for the help!

Argh...those would be so boss in shell.

 

Edit: At first I thought those were Plaza, but maybe they are Aberdeen?

Yes, those are great!

The squared off toe stitch makes it really hard to tell, but I think they are Plaza...

Pretty sure they are plaza also.  There was a tan version of this shoe in plaza that has been on sale (about $350) at Alden - Madison and SF and a few other retailers also for most of last year.

 

Here it is...
