Nice looking shoes!!


Is that the one in size 8E? Looks like Ravello shell + Alpine Grain to me. But would curious to know which retailer carries this make up.

What's the model number? You may want to shoot Alden an E-mail to find out more info.

Very interesting! What is the model #?!

Interestingly there is no model number. Where the model number should be, it just has "JR".... possibly a MTO from the past?

Yes sir! That's an awesome find! Wonder what shell that is? Looks like a light #8 perhaps #4?

Alden would need to do some digging I think..

Mac, your PT King Monks are looking very good. Looks good with your argyles and trousers.

A little change of pace from shell...

 

First time I've ever bought pre-owned shoes, looked like about 10 wears.

Never gotten such bad blisters in my life!  I though I could jump right into a full day since 

they had been previously broken in.  I was wrong.....

 

I do love the boots!

Looking good in your boots. They are a lovely makeup.

Those NST boots are looking very nice my friend. Those socks are kind of fun plus a good match.

Just my opinion... If you just can't decide you could always let me add them to my collection (just putting it out there).

 

Thanks for the feedback. I currently have it #8, but do tend to agree with you.

Aberdeen, all eyelets, and Ravello. Trifecta my friend. Well done.
Feels like I can just copy and paste with you DonL. Nice shoes, killer outfit.

For me, AF53's maiden voyage.....

Took a little longer than I hoped but definitely worth the wait. Alden does an incredible job on #8 recrafts.

 

Enjoy your new PT Boots in good health and enjoy your reinvigorated WT Monks.

Your new LWBs are quite unique. I have never seen that model before it appeared on the bay. I would guess that they are MTO as I tried to do a search to see if it was grain shell with no results. I know Alden has had Ravello Grain Shell Cordovan in the past. I have seen a sample of it before.

Thanks Tie Guy, the shell does have deep red tones, not sure if it's a dark ravello or possibly #4..... It is an interesting make-up

Uncle, thanks for confirming, I figured they were MTO with no model # listed.

@MoosicPa - I was watching them and contemplated taking a shot. They are really unique. Very nice pic.
