Just got myself tobacco suede but I think tan suede will be perfect for you. Farnese "tubo" belts is your answer smile.gif

NMWA has EURO20 promotion going for 20% off.

Lots of; "Vocational Drama" happening in life right now and wearing Alden's and enjoying them with you all is such a release.

 

Thanks.

 

By the way, incredible non shell showings today as well.

Hello Gentlemen,

I come to you looking for some advice on correcting the toe of my boots. A couple weeks ago I put a gouge into the toe of my shell boot. I cleaned the boot, went to work with my deer bone and eliminated the gouge for the most part. A couple days later I wore the boots, cleaned them again, and when I was shining with my cotton cloth I noticed the shine wasn't even. I worked on it for a little while, but when I got the leather wet it became almost tacky and flat with no shine to it at all. I brushed a bit but the shine is still inconsistent and part of my boot is now a matte/rough texture and appearance. Pics below, anyone experience this before? Any ideas how to fix it?

Cheers,

Derek

I actually do not know if the Cods have cork or not.

This is correct.

Moccasin construction will not have any cork. There isn't an where to put it. Contrary to popular belief, the main purpose of cork is to fill the void under the insole due to the gemming construction in Goodyear-welting which is a byproduct of the construction method, not for comfort. The comfort slogan came along later as a sales tactic.

Hello,

My Ravello LWB came from J.Crew a few years ago.

I like light antique edge.

Thank you.

Does the commando sole add height, or is part of the original leather sole just 'replaced'?

It doesn't replace the leather sole, but Alden's commando is the lowest profile of almost any maker out there. And I believe on B Nelson offers the true Alden commando soles if you ever want work done.

Someone might be able to snag a deal as the seller did not list them as shell cordovan.

Thanks for posting this. It reminded me that I have a pair, which I had forgotten about.
