They are called "Western" boot trees because you can use them in cowboy boots.  Don't let that fool you...I use them in ALL of my boots, as was recommended to me by a high end shoe and bootmaker once and I've never gone back.  Regular shoe trees just don't cut it for me in boots and chukkas due to the higher vamp.  These trees have a higher vamp support and conform better to boots and chukkas.  They raise up enough to actually help with creases and wrinkles, but aren't so wide as to stretch out the sides.

I prefer dark edges on my #8, Be.

Trying to catch up with all of these posts. I actually prefer color 8 with black edge regardless of dress or casual models. I think the antique edge looks much better with cigar than color 8 with the various casual to semi -casual make ups. To be fair though, I do not own a color 8 make up with antique edge. Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

This.

is there anywhere I can have a welt antiqued (boston or nyc?) B. Nelson will do it as part of a welt replacement but my shoes are very new so don't need that

Hey everyone

 

I recently got in contact with Yenni at Brick and Mortar to inquire about my ultimate dream boot makeup. She said she would take it into consideration and is going to start working on the Fall 2016 order soon. If anybody else finds the bellow makeup pleasing then please express your interest to her!

 

Color #8 or Cigar

Barrie last

Plain Cap toe boot

Brass eyelets and speed hooks (5 eyelets/4 speed hooks)

Flat antique 270 degree welt

Antique mid tan edge trim

Double leather soul

 

I hope some of you can find interest in the above makeup. I have been dreaming of it for a while now. I know this can be had basically with the Jcrew captoe boot and some custom work but I find it more appealing for Alden to produce the entire design. This is also a benefit when sending the boots back to Alden for a full restoration.

 

Thanks

Isn't this essentially Frans Boone's "Jumper boot" besides maybe the last?

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Although it’s not quite the makeup I outlined above. Pretty close though. Noting this for future reference.

Ahhhh...missing antique edge, too, right? Forgot about that. I was close ;)

post #114580 of 122416

All the differences I can catch are last, edge color and 360/270 degree welt. Other than that they’re identical. If only I knew my grant size and they were actually in stock I’d maybe consider them.

Unfortunately your Brass Eyelets will be removed. Be prepared to only be offered matching Eyelets if or when this is submitted and confirmed.
