Trees are trees to me unless you are talking bespoke. If they smell good and restore the original form to the shoes, I'm a buyer...

 

I agree for shoes though I find myself wanting something a bit more for my boots - something to fill the vamp out more

Uncle, not sure if there's a typo but that doesn't look plaza to me, the toe is not really chiseled in your king wt boot. May be because of the angle?

Wonderful. LOVE modified last, and would gladly swap quite a few current pairs for that last.

 

Curious.. assuming they came from straight from Moulded.. what was the end cost? I've been meaning to reach out to them, especially as I think they were the ones that just posted a kudu indy on modified..

 

thanks in advance!

Don, your Choco Suede Tankers are looking superb of course! Those pants have a nice amount of character to them and look good with the cuffs.

Your Cigars have a terrifically rich color to them.

Wanted to take a quick pic outside while I'm still in CT, as I'm lugging these to my place in the city with me tomorrow

 

Your PCT family looks good and your Black Shells are a great addition.

Your Indys are looking good and are hopefully taking good care of your feet.

I personally do not like flaws on the toes of my shoes. The only shoe I have ever returned was due to a nice line going across the toe of the shoe. The welt cut on those don't phase me at all for an Alden makeup.

Hah! I have been there as well, but I think you will be happy (and poorer) because of it.

Nevertheless maybe I will give the grant a try...

 

FYI.

There's a side by side pic between barrie and grant last in this thread. Post #34203.

Didn't think I would like brass on 8. Man was I wrong. Those look slick.

Yesterday was my maiden voyage of some black shell I picked up over the summer from a fellow SF'er. Today, Leffot Dovers. Quickly becoming my favorite casual shoe.

Thanks! I ordered them from the Alden Shop in SF. 

 

Now, something different... I've ordered indy boots from them before, which came with regular heel pads, but these have a special print on them for the San Francisco shop.
