Damn, I liked them when viewing on Unionmade's website.  Love them now.

Also the cordovan indy on the crepe/plantation sole looks pretty outstanding in person.  A lot of the photos on the unionmade website really don't do justice to their product.  In fact, I guess the same could be said for almost every Alden retailer :(

+1
PTBs are a no-regret purchase in any color!

I tried the NST in a shoe twice (cigar and whiskey) and just couldn't get into them. Only like them in boots.

Agreed PTBs are wonderful. Wear mine all the time.

Those are incredible. I bought the indy's they had come out a month ago and honestly I wish I would have known about these as I would have waited. They look great, plus they (I think) have a commando sole, which I love.

Any help?

Question:

 

Is wax a MUST?

 

Maybe i am the only person who doesnt like my shoes super shinny.

Is just the Alden boot cream enough after cleaning and brushing?

 

Any negatives of not using wax besides the shoes being super shinny?

post #45382 of 122416
Wax is not a must by any means. I've erred on the side of Reno and brushing only and have maintained my shoes just fine.

Anybody know of any new releases coming out in shell?

I'd go for the PTB. I don't have a pair, maybe I will some day. The PTB seems like a classic, basic shoe, that almost anyone could use, especially in #8 or cigar.

These look great. I'm regretting not buying a pair of these when they still had my size in stock.
