Looks awesone. Love black shell, sporting some today BB PTB!
Edge dressing is your friend
How do you like them so far?
I'm also looking at a pair of the 40513HC Tobacco Chamois version.
It appears as these maybe even more water resistant.
Shoe tree question:
I picked up a pair of 9.5 c/e alden shoes a few days that I found in a consignment store (someone on this forum mentioned they looked like they are on the plaza last). I have only one other pair of alden boots which are a 9.5 B/D which is what I normally wear but the C/E width felt fine in the store.
When I got the shoes home I took the Alden shoe trees from my boots and placed them in the shoes I just purchased to clean them up a bit and I noticed that the shoe trees seemed to be pushing the sides of the shoes pretty hard..to the point where it looked like they would stretch them out a bit if I left them in.
Has anyone experienced this before? The shoe trees are standard width im pretty sure and dont push the sides of my B/D width shoes. The shoes dont appear to be narrow by any means.
Is the plaza last just much more narrow than the barrie?
thanks for any info
