Nice one smart guy. Resorting (incorrectly on your part) to pointing out spelling errors in another person's comments is the sign of a poorly-made argument. I stand by my appreciation of the Barrie last. I also enjoy the elegance of other lasts as art. I wish I could enjoy them on my own feet but nature gets in the way.

All for the low, low, lulzy price of $800:

A suede saddle shoe with a bit of #8 slapped on it. Even the rare shell trifecta boots don't go for that much...yet.

I subscribed to the Shoe Mart's seconds list for 10 and 10.5, got the confirmation, and have yet to ever receive a list (checked Junk folder, etc). If anyone is willing to send me a recent edition of those, drop me a PM. Thanks in advance.

I really want to ask him if he'd be willing to end the auction if I sent him $2,000

Alden of San Francisco, $710 shipped in 9.5D (I wear a 10 usually, Barrie last).  Some heel slippage, but its minor and I understand that it settles over time.

 

Great shoe, wonderful service.

 

BTW, dumb question and I know some pining over this hiuge thread would answer my questions, but what are "seconds?"

Gents, I have a dumb question: can anyone recommend websites where I can purchase good socks? I think my white athletic socks are not wisest choice to pair with my Aldens shog[1].gif

I'm confused.... you mean 5 years ago you were tying your shoelaces correctly, but stopped doing so until now?

Or are you saying that 5 years ago you learned to use the Ian fast knot?

You used the word "rational" as a noun in your original quotation. Note that in the dictionary reference you linked above, the only use of rational as a noun is a mathematical term that refers to a number

He's just trying to rationalize his usage of the word.

Socks, great question:
An article from NY Times about fun socks: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/05/fashion/in-silicon-valley-socks-make-the-tech-entrepreneur.html

I've bought from O'Connells in Buffalo, via their website. The Marcilanis are nice. And there are some much more standard varieties.

I believe the Alden SF and NY stores sell some nice socks, perhaps DC as well?

I also see a lot of nice socks in the photos here, so I bet there will be a lot more good answers for you.

Do spend a reasonable amount and get good socks Worth it considering the shoes. No need to go crazy though.

#8 SWB. Tremont Last - one of the most comfortable shoes ever. Not nearly as heavy as its barrie equivalent (ie - both 11.5, size down 1/2).
