Wish i could find an 11.5E

thanks for the kind words gentlemen.

the bb sw fit me tts, same as the Tremont and plaza. they seem to be a bit longer and not as round as the Tremont sw.

The first is a hole in the edge where the commando sole meets with the leather......it is probably the size of a pencil tip.

 

The second is a tear in the tongue that goes completely through the leather.....hard to tell the length but it is about 1/4 of an inch.

that's disappointing. I would keep them.

I think the Alden shortwing balmoral model is in Grant, not Tremont.  At least Citishoes describes it as Grant.

I don't love those.  At all.

Didn't even realize that I forgot to add the picture of the sole. I added it.

It's Tremont... very different than grant.

This is the same shoe but in color 8...

I like the #4 but would rather have cigar, ravello or even #8, they would likely all get much more wear for me.

 

Although if they were my size, I would probably be in since they will be so hard to find when my tastes mature enough to realize how awesome #4 is!

You've got a winning lottery ticket there, friend!  If you don't mind me asking, why have you decided to give them up?  Do you have other shell flavors in the same boot?  I hope (and I think you will) collect an absurd amount for your boots.  All the best...

My wife and I welcomed our first, a daughter, a few weeks ago. She came a little early and had to spend a week in the NICU. That whole experience changed my view on things. Realized I don't need high end shoes that I wear maybe once a month tops so I am getting out of the game.

congrats on the daughter!

 

my prayers are with your family that she has a healthy upbringing!

 

if you were 11.5-12, I'd gladly have doubled your current going ebay amount, knowing the reasoning for your taking a step out of the shoe game.

this is just a matter of curiosity:  it seems like a lot of people on here tie their LWB's really tight, to where the lace panels are really close together and the lace loops are quite long.  To me it kind've makes it look like the shoes might be a half size too big?

You have a far richer lottery ticket in the NICU, my friend!  :nodding:  Nothing approaches the wonder of parenthood.  All the best to your new family!
