It took a while to make up my mind on my next pair of Alden shoes. This is my fifth pair and considering that own shell in color 8, ravello, cigar and black and I was looking for something that would go with my dress pants and shirt attire. I am extremely happy I got the #9901 in black shell cordovan. The shoe is person is just very beautiful. Pictures definitely don't do it justice. Black PTB in shell cordovan is so deep, rich and luxurious. Its a shoe I cant help smiling at. Its a shoe that elevates me.
Shots before going on maiden voyage. Thank you RTP, Thank you media hound, your video was inspirational and thank you Uncle for your guidance always.
Nicely done. Black shell, IMO, is a perfectly valid option "on the table" whenever one is considering a shell purchase. Many overlook black shell models in the same way they overlook various color 8 stock models.
