i rarely look at the bottom of my shoes and I dislike falling on my arse.
not to mention, it'll prolong the life of the sole if you live where it rains/snows

This look familiar? Description says they are Barrie but to me they look like TruBalance...
By chance, are these uppers black chromexcel or just regular calf?

These are the Alden Indy 401s. Trubalance last, regular black calf with white contrast stiching, black neoprene sole. Fairly common in store model. I think the Black and Tan epaulet model did not have contrast stitching and had a different colour welt.

Yep, Unionmade had/has a version of these:

You know, I thought I had seen it all on the internet, but I honestly had never considered nor seen a men's shoe fetish before.

I just had a thin vibram put on my 975s after wearing a few times. no problem at all. if you're nervous about finding a good cobbler, call a shoe store where you live that sells good shoes and ask who they recommend.

So I'm finally at the point where my shell boots (#8's and Cigar) are getting scuffed up where a damp cloth and horsehair brush aren't cutting it anymore. I know that sparse amounts of paste wax a la the Mac method will get out the scuffs but before doing that, should I try switching to a stiffer brush than horsehair, and if so, which brush would you recommend?

Also, I recall people talking a few months back or so about the potential wonders of buffing with a buffer attachment used with a power drill. Can anybody share any positive results from this and what kind of cloth and method they used to cover the buffer attachment with?

I ask about covering the attachment because I've got a buffer attachment for my power drill but the material (a sort of "wooly cloth" for lack of a better phrase) seems much too harsh and looks as if it would actually scuff the shell rather than buff it. I'm curious if covering it with something like an old stocking (didn't gaga use pantyhose for buffing his extensive Japanese collection?) or a flannel cloth might prevent this.

Sorry if these have already been addressed but searching the thread hasn't yielded much and plus I'd like to hear some testimonies for those who did use a buffer attachment.

That video is scary. Esp when watching not sober

To Alden:

But tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, the brink
You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections

Thanks you. If you're looking into purchasing cigar don't forget about the PTB as a viable option.

Thanks for the info! Was thinking of purchasing them if they were by chance black CXL. Oh well...

Thanks, they are my second choice. Which I may have to choose - I have a high instep and I find it near impossible to get my foot into calfskin/suede Alden Chukkas. The guys at Shoe Mart told me that the cordovan chukkas run a bit bigger because of the nature of the leather and if I get a E that may help.

Before anyone slaps my wrist - I know this is the Alden forum (posted last night but didn't get the pic up) - but Rancourt has been discussed before and i wanted to give you guys a view at a quality custom made quick turnaround made in the USA product - basically the things we should be proud of when we see made in the USA

They do look like they make a good shoe. Looks like they don't do anything that's not a moc-toe?
