Are you really asking that question on this thread?
Seriously though, the McNeil is a fine shoe but there is absolutely no comparison as far as fit, comfort, finishing, and overall quality. The difference in calf or color 8 shell is about $175 and well worth it IMHO.
well I mean AE MacNeil Burguendy Shell vs. Alden LWB #8 Shell in barrie
Same answer my friend, no comparison... minor leagues compared to the Show (MLB)
