Alright, I am going to switch the topic... What are all of your firsts?

 

First "Nicer" Shoe:

Allen Edmonds Walnut Calf Player's Shoe

 

First Shell Shoe:

Allen Edmonds Walnut Shell Strand

 

First Alden Shoe (if Different):

Alden Color 8 Tassel Loafer (My wife calls them the mustache shoe).

 

Happy Holidays,

Mike

I think we all can agree Mike was very generous to try to set this up but the overwhelming response is impossible to fill in one round, assuming this can happen at all. I believe it can happen but it will, as Mike said, be limited. Whether that is 8, 12, 16 or more, who knows. It's a long way off and any number of things can change. The various other ideas floating around are nice but it is the relationships between Mike and Kathy, Kathy and Alden, and, obviously, supply that will tell. Long way of saying this topic is already pretty well flogged unless and until we hear back from Mike.

Dang, you did come out with a bang!!! It was hard for me to justify my first Shell purchase. But once I did, it was all over! Now I pretty much have no more Calfs left (I actually still have my Players Shoe because they were my first shoe)...

I'm kinda glad I did it that way. If not I'd have a bunch of calf shoes collecting dust. Right now I only have one pair of calf shoes that I wear periodically because they have a dainite sole.

My first three Aldens were:

975 (since sold because it was the wrong size)
Ravello PTB (sold, one of my worst errors)
Ravello tassels ( still going strong)

I also bought a suede PTB from J Crew during this time period that I still wear

These are nowhere near first, but I like em:

You have a pic of your Ravello Tassels? Those are one of my favorite shoes. Unfortunately I am a 11b on the Aberdeen last and not many people make that shoe or purchased that size...
