Thanks, uncle.  Wonder how big a wall your shoe/boot rack would require???

I can't believe I'm running out of room for my shoes. I've been saying for a couple of years that no man should own as many shoes as I have. Then, I found this site..........

 

My mother-in-law hated the HVAC vent in her room blowing on her head while she was in bed so she shut the vent.  But that didn't prevent some air from escaping out.  So she taped some cardboard over the vent.  That solved her problem.  But it looked plain ugly.

 

I wouldn't want a vent blowing any heat on my footwear.  If it's not blowing directly on the shoes, I wouldn't worry too much.

After a long day on my feet at work, the 975's still feel as great as I think they look...

I could be wrong, but I have found the glazing Alden use to finish off most of their Cordovan shoes makes wax polish unnecessary. Eventually, the glazing will wear off. That's the time when a little (reads very little) paste wax would be useful.

Interestingly, this glazing finish is pretty unique to Alden, especially the recent productions. I have yet to see that glazing on other Cordovan shoes.

Good or bad, I have found Vass uses excessive amount of paste wax to finish off their Cordovan shoes.

Have not owned a pair of color 8 with antique edge.  The combination looks really good, but not sure I will seek it out.  I think I prefer Cigar with the light edge, but I will never say never.

... Or could it simply be a case of a closet overflowing with Aldens? I grew up with four sisters and I mixed up their names all the time.
