Really happy I got in on these.
Love Alden crepe soles.... the leather toe tip and all, and esp. love how they look as they break-in (look like burnt tire rubber with a slight whitish haze, so cool). And the feel, like tennis shoes. Love them more with a chunky reverse welt.
I'm somewhat influenced by the Roy boot which at one time seemed to be the hotness around these parts. Not sure what happened in the ensuing years, but the crepe seems to get much hate.
If I had a misgiving it would be the speed hooks, def plus and minuses there.
Which vendor had this Walter boot preorder?post #114740 of 1224168/12/15 at 9:54pmpost #114741 of 1224168/12/15 at 10:05pmWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Quote:Quote:Originally Posted by mdubs
Very nice! ZP has many nice models that he is having to sell due to sizing.
Thank you grass for covering them up more cause these boots are far too rad.
Good to see you here Doc! Lovey PTBs. Cool Walts also.
Indeed! Nice LWBs!!! :-)
Absolutely superb Don!!!!
For sure! Nice LWBs!!!
Yes, they will ship. They are Whiskey Shortwing Balmorals and Ravello LWBs. Not Whiskey.
She has the following available as of my last visit about 2.5 weeks ago.
Whiskey WT Balmoral
9, 9.5, 12 and 12B
They are Ravello.
Superb as always Zippy! Love them Whiskeys.
thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
i no longer use polish. polish collects dust and dirties shell rolls. i use alden natural boot cream, only use it once a year, and very little of it.
so nice donlpost #114742 of 1224168/13/15 at 3:11ampost #114743 of 1224168/13/15 at 3:17amGot my Ultimate Indys from Leather Soul yesterday. They are absolutely amazing! I love the soft CXL leather, dark welt and commando sole. I wore them around the house yesterday evening Very comfy right out of the box. My Indy Snuff Suede boots might have to move to the back of the line, LOL! The Trubalance last works well with my flat feet!post #114744 of 1224168/13/15 at 3:37ampost #114745 of 1224168/13/15 at 5:00ampost #114746 of 1224168/13/15 at 5:02amQuote:
While not suit pants - my grey pants get paired with Navy or #8 shoes all the time. I love the look, no photos though.
Edit: just found a pair of my GMTO Allen Edmonds Navy Eagle Rivers with Greypost #114747 of 1224168/13/15 at 5:44ampost #114748 of 1224168/13/15 at 6:22ampost #114749 of 1224168/13/15 at 6:30ampost #114750 of 1224168/13/15 at 6:32amQuote:
