post #113401 of 122416

Thanks! @KPDarb That's what I thought too but as they don't have plain toe boots I wanted to check.

Also the model I tried had the usual cork sole and heel pad. The ones I'm looking after are on a commando sole, but this shouldn't affect the overall fit.

SOO Many great contributions this week! I would LOVE to individually quote every one of them and express how awesome they all are, but my time doesn't allow me to unfortunately...

My favorites were the pics of the dog face and Aldens, the Zippy crazy collection, and all of the LWBs of course! :-)

@smoothie1
 the Ravello Cap Toe Boots on the Plaza Last were made for a small shoe store in Scandanavia called Asbjorn Dagestad. They are not too interested in shipping to the US and only do E widths.

Hope that all had a fantastic week!!! :-)

mdubs really showing the full gambit of Alden Whiskeys. Those PTBs could easily pass for a nice light shade of Ravello and they get lighter as you scroll down. Beautiful!

Thanks Hand, it's funny because that is essentially oldest to newest. I find that the Whiskeys tend to lighten immediately and then slowly darken towards the medium brown colors.

My lord those ravello NST boots are insanely beautiful. Initially I didn't get all the hype, albeit unjustly, but now its clear: those are amazing.

Those are almost certainly from TheShoeMart seconds. They have racks of those in smaller sizes in their Norwalk store. They are really super cool though.

Thanks. Yes, I was completely in the same boat as you. I thought they were okay, but gave my pair to a friend a few years ago instead of keeping them. But they grew on me significantly and they are now in my upper tier of Alden's.
