I was in Houston back in January and saw them there. I suppose it is possible that they were old stock color 8 that looked darker and more brown than usual, but the dark brown edge I am pretty sure of, which makes me think the dark brown shell is correct. Color 8 LHS typically come with black edge. Also, the soles were significantly thicker than the shell tassel mocs that sat next to them on display. Could it be that C&J or another maker produced this model?
Black Fleece had a reddish brown shiny calf one, similar to the RL shell loafer. By C&J. Really nice pair, my Dad almost bought it.
It had Horween Shell cordovan stamped on the sole. Pretty sure it was Alden.post #50073 of 1224165/6/13 at 12:15pmpost #50074 of 1224165/6/13 at 12:31pmpost #50075 of 1224165/6/13 at 12:33pmpost #50076 of 1224165/6/13 at 12:44pmpost #50077 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:00pmpost #50078 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:09pmpost #50079 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:09pmpost #50080 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:09pmpost #50081 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:09pmpost #50082 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:17pmpost #50083 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:48pmpost #50084 of 1224165/6/13 at 1:57pmQuote:Originally Posted by Distorbiant
These boots got a lot of hate in this thread last year.
I got my hands on a pair. Not sure if I should keep them or not though.
On one hand, I could really use the college money.
On the other hand, no other shoe I've owned has foot as good as this one.
i'd keep them if you like them. that's a unique alden make up. it doesn't matter as much if others like them or not.post #50085 of 1224165/6/13 at 2:01pmQuote:
I have mixed feelings. From some angles, I love em. From others, not so sure. I'm certainly not used to having pebble grained leather on a boot and it throws me off a bit.
e: How they look on feet (not my pic)
