aesthetics aside, the combination of the commando heel and smooth sole elsewhere doesn't really jive imo.

Anyone know how to do this lace style that AOC uses?

Looks like standard bar lacing to me. If you zoom in on the picture you should be able to make out where the laces go on the underside of the pattern.

This site has tons of different lacing styles. I think this is the one they are using.

With the speed hooks it looks sloppy.

Cigar PTB on crepe by Winn Perry. My first crepe soled Aldens.


Tried on this shoe last year and really liked it. First time I'd seen brand new Cigar in person. Wasn't prepared to make the purchase that day so I waited. For one day. Called Jordan to buy them but my size was gone.

They're breaking in nice - enjoy them!

Maybe I read into the stylistic choices made too much here, but I think its perfect. The boot itself is both elegant and rugged at the same time (elegance being an all eyelet in shell on a fairly conservative shape and the ruggedness coming from the brogued cap toe and the back pull tab) so the sole matches that in my mind.

Grand total? $50. May not be the cleanest underneath, but I asked him to really stack em, and double up on what I had. The Commando Sole was a surprise but I LOVE IT. I do believe they are now ULTIMATE. Vincent Sirico (Napolitan to boot!) at 8810 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge.

NYR, I think you should Saphir the sole - natural is too Tricker-ish. My $.02.

yeah seriously #4 ftw

@ NYR - those boots look absolutely fantastic now. I would personally try to darken the sole as well.

General question - is Saphir Ren. only available on A Suitable Wardrobe? Any other places that sell it?

Leather Soul sells it and I reommend you get if from them as you will get a larger jar of it. While its good stuff I also really like Venetian Shoe creme in terms of conditioner.

LeatherSoul has it as well, just ordered a jar with Alden Leather Defender from Bryan in BH. It's going out tonite. I think OTF ships only a couple of times a month...
