Agree, that is a beautiful sample of Whiskey Shell.

Wow, thats a jump, good luck to him. I was eyeing his Cigar NST 6 eyelets. First was no sale at 700, now at 680. Guess I have a few more months to wait.

Some of his are reasonable though.

Some dunderhead is trying to flip a pair of #4 Atoms (short wing bluchers) for $2,000 on eBay.  Fellows, I am all for free market capitalism and the like, but if you are asking that kind of price for used shoes, they should at least be refurbished.  

 

Best of luck to the optimistic seller and any marks willing to meet that price for a used shoe.  Smh...

you must have missed the boots that went for over 3K 2 weeks ago.

I did not miss them.  I saw that successful sale and still find it curious at best. 

 

This is what we call in my profession "dumb money".  When Alden reverses course and reissues special batches of Color #4 shoes, these purchasers will realize they overpaid handsomely.  Moreover, at that price, you could probably commission or purchase shell of this color from Horween, deliver it to a higher-end maker, and have new MTO shoes made. 

 

I do not get it.  Paying a price that would otherwise get you approximately three pairs of other "rare" shell.

^ A $2k BIN with best offer will likely result in a much different actual selling price.

Cigar CTs Maiden Voyage. Had to get these out before the full NYC summer hits.

Maiden voyage of new color 8 4020HC from Citishoes. I've been looking for a #8 NST boot for a while and was super happy to hear they actually had one in my size! They included woodlore epic twin tube trees, but they don't really fit the barrie last so I'm not sure what to do with them.

Those are nice. I wish I would have gotten in on that.

My obsessive particular nature wishes you would fix the twist in the laces, though.

Cigar LWB


Sold a pair of these before. Regretted it. Now I've corrected that mistake thanks to Alden NYC...

Awesome boots - enjoy them. They were my first Alden boot purchase and I wore them extensively the first year or two I owned them. They are very versatile and will get a lot of complements. After acquiring more brown/color 8 boots on commando soles, I have sold mine (for not that much less than I bought them three years ago) as I probably only wore them three the past twelve months. However, I could see myself getting in on another run a few years from now...

I think out of all the pics I've seen from the most recent Cigar LWB run from NYC, yours are the best shade. Mine look a little darker than yours, I was hoping they would have been a little lighter.

Black vs antique edge makes a huge difference on color 8 shoes. These look entirely different than the Leffot tankers (which I have)
