I guess I was trying to say that you will likely get less wear out of your boots the next few months anyway. Better to wait for what you really want (cigar or natty CXL boots). I guess you can wear shell boots in spring / summer but my cigar captoes on commando soles will be boxed up around May or so in favor of other options

These perfectly epitomize what a black "office" shoe should be. Fantastic. I'll be getting a pair as well, I'm sure.

They look to me like the BB Aldens (M58 last, really like that last):

These are BB but they are model 2161 from a few years back (which, correct me if I'm wrong, were all made on the Aberdeen last). I believe the newer M58 last was a recent change in the BB line.

I got them on sale from a BB retailer in Maine I believe... it was a while back so can't be sure

That shoe isn't made on the M58 last... which you would have known had you looked at the first review.

No, that reviewer is wrong or posted his review on the wrong shoe.

The perforated cap toe is on the Snap last (below link). I do believe the above straight tip cap toe shoe is the M58 last.

Forgive me for I'm about to sin. I'm going to invest in a pair of shell chukkas. I really like the Alden Cigar Chukka, but this one by AE has really caught my eye. And it is about $100 less. Help!

That looks outstanding. AE is well reputed around here. Good to see they are branching out with more shell colors.
