Continuing this train of thought, we should run a poll of which Alden shoes get the best reaction from wives/girlfriends/girls at bars/any other potential love interests. Similar to a huge thread on Basenotes (the cologne forum) on "Which cologne gets the most female compliments." Everyone list their top three.
1) Leffot Navy CXL Greenwich Boot (almost every time)
2) Cigar Captoe Boots
3) Leffot Color 8 / Alpine Grain Saddles
Other good ones are color 8 wingtip boots, Leffot antique color 8 longwings, and ravello tassels.
I have only ever gotten complimented one one pair of shoes. My whiskey LWB. Almost everytime I wear them.
My wife's favorite pair of mine seems to evolve. At first her favorite pair were my Alden CXL PTBs. Now it is my whiskey LWB. She likes my #8 Indys too...
