Dang it for who ever posted that BB discount code. Just Picked up the suede boots from BB. I assumed they are on built on the Barrie, but can anyone confirm this?

Thanks!

Looking great Saz! I decided I couldn't live another day without these and my pair just arrived this afternoon.

I would be all over the Snuff boots if it they were on any other sole. frown.gif

What is wrong with the crepe sole? Does it wear too quickly?

Nah, it's purely aesthetics for me. Others will disagree though.

I actually tried a boot on with crepe soles. They are comfortable!

Nothing wrong in my book.

 

Personally, i have come to like the crepe. I have them on my Frans Snuff/Chamois saddles and they are super comfortable and casual. Both qualities i was looking for when buying. I used to think commando soles were the way to go with boots for the traction, but im sold on crepe as an alternative. Now maybe they are not as durable as a leather soles or commando(although I've gone through alden commando soles quick, so that's debatable) I actually like the comfort and aesthetics for certain boots. 

 

I wouldnt want them on a pair of ravello captoes, for instance, but a black shell plain toe boot(Walter) or suede saddle...yes please.

We can all agree on the comfort factor.

Yes I think someone emailed Alden and confirmed TB. Great deal. These are also my favorite of the non shell BB models. First quality at seconds pricing.

Has anyone ever heard of or ordered from the following vendor? http://skomakerdagestad.no/index/#/alden/

Really interesting makeups...

Navy suede NST blucher on Aberdeen:



Choco suede NST boot on Aberdeen or Plaza (!!... if I hadn't put money down with LS and their barrie one, I'd inquire about this...):



#8 LWB on tan antique:



And then a variety of #8 and Black shell (and calf and suede) makeups.

I've never even heard of them. Anyone have history buying from them?

Those are nice!  How are crepe soles in the winter?  I never seen them in person or tried them on before

I believe they are Alden for J.Crew:

 

I would love to track down a pair myself for next winter!

I've chatted with them. Super nice and the Euro conversion works in our favor. Unfortunately they were limited in sizes available for their tanker on aberdeen (only E widths).

Nice find on the BB discount code. I jumped on the snuff tassels. Figured they'd be pretty awesome for the summer. Anyone else have them?
