I know these don't get a lot of love on here but, I've been wearing them quite a bit lately.



For me they work very well on the biz casual side, probably wouldn't like them with a suit and I'm not too into black with jeans(personal preference) so I can see the argument for lack of versatility. But black shell has a nice glow.

I love these. Black shell is underrated and beautiful.

+1.  Those are great.

Crowdsourcing this. I chew through the heels on my Indys like crazy (3-4 months avg). I can't find any cobblers in my (new) area that carry the asymmetrical heel. Can I source these anywhere myself? Anybody have similar experiences?

Anyone here also have Cleverleys? I'm trying to figure out what size I wear in relation to my Aldens.

Thanks you members of the Styleforum Official Alden thread!  Those of you who helped me know who you are, my hats off to you!

 

See Ya,

Steve

I'd really like to echo Steve's gratitude for the information, enthusiasm and camaraderie that flows so freely on this thread. I didn't even know the difference between an Alden and an Aldo as of 2012. Like Steve, I've collected a fair number of shells and some other great pairs over the last 10 months. I know I couldn't have done it in as educated a fashion without the support, candor and shoe porn that so many of you have offered. Here's hoping for more fun times as we head toward a 2014 that, hopefully, will be full of ravello and cigar Brixtons and other grails we've been seeking.

 

Also, I sometimes feel bad that I don't post pics more frequently. I'm not always by the computer during the day and don't have the time to take dslr pics while rushing around. In any event, my humble contribution for today is a quick iphone snapshot of a recent acquisition: tobacco chamois/oiled nubuck Greenwich boots from Leffot paired with Pure Blue Japan xx-013 selvedge. Went with an 8E instead of my usual 8.5D Barrie; was worried at first when they started out snug, but as of today (4th or 5th wearing), the cork seems to be relaxing a bit, making for a much more proper, if not comfy fit. Great for a yucky weather day like today.
