That's hilarious!  But I can see the navy going well with chinos. 

Of course it was all in good fun, but it was and is my honest opinion. thumbs-up.gif

Interesting. Troubling.

This happened after the first wear outside (after the Mac break in on carpet first). I sent pictures to Che and she said its normal. I have a pair of RL chamois shoes that look fine. They are at my office I will post pictures tomorrow.

LoL, funny as we are both Michael W's, but I assure you that we are different people indeed and come from opposite sides of the country.

Ironclad, do not be envious, just search hard and be patient you can find yourself some beautiful pieces of Ravello Shell Cordovan.

Never heard of shoes being Hershey's Chocolate, but I will take it! :-)

Thank you Sazon. The Alden LWB is a very classy and versatile shoe.

 

Have a great Monday and Happy 2014.

Interesting is right, the left shoe looks supersaturated with the oils. 

I wonder if there is a way to make them more uniform. 

I would suggest emailing Nick @ Horween and asking his opinion. 

You may find a positive result. 

You may also want to use a nubuck brush to raise the nap slightly.

Nice PJs... :-) and very nice cap toe boots. Look very clean right now, given that they have Commando soles, I imagine they will get well used.

Thats a fun set of shoes. I like the light edging and brass eyelets on the Navy. Very unique make-up. But I concur, not going to fly with a suit...

DonL, the fit of those Ravello NSTs on your feet must be amazing, because I can not get my NSTs to look nearly that good. Happy brushing!

That most certainly does! The antique edging provides a nice contrast to the upper... Thanks!

agreed! For me it is a perfect foul weather/casual kick around shoe.

Sorry for the picture quality, they are from a galaxy s4. Some are with flash, some are without flash to try to give you comprehensive idea

They are definitely great shoes. I like them a lot and enjoy wearing them. I wish they wore more evenly but considering the nature of this leather, its not totally unexpected.
