That is very interesting. I think the rule is that steel is great but may not be necessary for a heel that is 1-inch or less in height. Has anyone on the forum done this? I travel for work sometimes and while it's not a horrible issue, I would prefer to leave my shoes on through the TSA pre check line!!

Tankers - need a brushing but increasingly happy with some scuffs showing and more Of a matte finish.

Personally, I like their tankers better

The vanilla bean just doesn't perform well in wet weather unless I apply Alden ice cream defender first 😉

For the third year in a row, I will be wearing my Alden 4060 (black cordovan capris boot) for NYE festivities. What will you be wearing?

Here they are at the Jimmy Choo section in Harrods. Shopping for the wife guys!

The Dr. Jones is a fantastic boot. Yours look very good. Have fun spending your entire shoe budget on your wife... :-)

I will stick with the Shell Cordovan Tankers myself, but I am biased.

Apparently, the multi button didn't lie this post. Tankers are looking good... Keep brushing them though bud!

Feeling the same way. Especially when both Leathersoul and Leffot have come out with similar makeups to Epaulet's rydenboot since that pre-order was finalized last February.

I might be done with Alden (and move away from shell) and invest $7xx towards StC or Zonkey or Enzo Bonafe or whomever Skoak is about to bring in if Alden continues to be challenging to work with. I just had a 1.5 year delay on what was supposed to be a ravello wt boot that ended up being a cigar wt boot and that was paid in full upfront!. I will be very upset if the ryden boot is messed up as I've passed up a handful of nice black boot makeups - in both Alden and Viberg - as I've been on that preorder for nearly a year.

I'll be barefoot tonight. Staying in with the wife.

Stay safe and have fun to everyone going out and celebrating tonight!

crazy to think that we'll be coming up on 11 months for the ryden boot. not crazy from an alden wait time perspective, but crazy that it was so long ago that order was processed.

 

fingers crossed it arrives as spec'd

It's pretty neat how the same boot in different leathers can give off completely different vibes. 

 

 

Alden x J.Crew #8 shell captoe boots.

 

Alden x Leffot natural chromexcel captoe boots
