I think I got them in March/April. Had my eye on them for a while and used the 30% during the BB corporate event. $350. Probably never wouldn't have paid $500 for them.
I discovered that I like fine-nap suede, which is what got me thinking about the Repello rangers that we discussed in another venue. How fine is the nap on your Milkshakes?post #55683 of 1224167/24/13 at 8:29pmpost #55684 of 1224167/24/13 at 8:44pmpost #55685 of 1224167/24/13 at 8:47pmpost #55686 of 1224167/24/13 at 9:02pmpost #55687 of 1224167/24/13 at 9:14pm
Can somebody tell me if this is a pair of Aldens, and if so, which pair? I found it in a google search for Alden shoes, but I can't seem to find a pair that looks like this anywhere else. I don't feel like I've seen an Alden longwing in this color brown with that contrasting welt. Any help appreciated. Thanks y'all.post #55688 of 1224167/24/13 at 9:33pmQuote:
Thank you Uncle. I don't own any edge-trim dressing yet. Will have to pick some up on my next purchase.
Your Ravello captoes are looking absolutely stunning as well. Great pair!post #55689 of 1224167/24/13 at 9:55pmQuote:Originally Posted by barrettdudley

Not sure these are shell. Could be dark brown calf with natural edge and welt. This shoe at TSM looks pretty close...post #55690 of 1224167/24/13 at 10:40pmpost #55691 of 1224167/24/13 at 10:51pm
thank you be.
thanks for the kind words sazon.
thank you rtp.
great looking combo argentinopost #55692 of 1224167/24/13 at 10:53pmpost #55693 of 1224167/24/13 at 10:57pmQuote:
I dont mind, dark brown/black whatever you guys agree on, I'm open to it.
I'm down for normal double leather, or the water loc, or the dainite.
Edited by venividivicibj - 7/24/13 at 11:47pmpost #55694 of 1224167/24/13 at 11:16pmI would be interested in either of these two boots--which seems to be what most people are describing.
The first is plaza and the second barrie.
I believe both are make ups for Leather Soul. I don't have any interest in the Alden commando sole - I am not a fan - so I would opt out if that is the direction.post #55695 of 1224167/24/13 at 11:34pmQuote:Originally Posted by Burton

the boot we are describing is like that, but rather a captoe instead of a shortwing.
I agree, I would rather have the double leather sole, water-lock, or dainite, not commando sole.
