He wears them outside, but when he has to cross a stretch of concrete, he crawls on his hands and knees to prevent wearing down the toes.post #45770 of 1224163/15/13 at 5:38pmpost #45771 of 1224163/15/13 at 5:58pmQuote:
I don't think Alden even advertises, doesn't seem to be a need for marketing when they sell virtually every shoe they make and retailers are lining up to carry the brand.post #45772 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:00pmpost #45773 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:07pmpost #45774 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:19pmQuote:
was interested initially, but I agree.. at that price.. I'll manage with the #8 boots I have..
will bite the bullet for a couple more pair in shell and then I'm likely tapping out lolpost #45775 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:35pmQuote:
I have a couple of specialty cordovan make ups I'd like to acquire. I will simply wait for those offerings. It makes more and more sense to acquire the eg galways. Although maybe it's about time I start taking a harder look at calf offerings.post #45776 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:36pmpost #45777 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:54pmpost #45778 of 1224163/15/13 at 6:55pmpost #45779 of 1224163/15/13 at 7:07pmpost #45780 of 1224163/15/13 at 7:07pmQuote:
That's one of the very few things keeping me away from diving into the shell game too early. Lighter colors are really pulling me in, but I don't want to lost the love for all my calf shoes.
