Hey guys. I've learned a lot on style forum. And this thread also. Ive purchased 3 alden boots. 1 of which was from a guy on styleforum. Ive read some wonderful advice on here as far as sizing and polishing goes. So here is what i want to do. I purchased a pair of Alden plain toe balmoral in dark burgundy (color 8 i believe) model 934 from a thrift shop today. They are a size 10.5 b/d and i believe there are on the aberdeen last. Yes they need some work ( both have plastic toe caps, 1 has a heal cap, other heel cap is broken off). the soles have wear. and the colors is not perfect. they also don't have shoe laces, have multiples light scratches, and a lot of pigment around the lace holes. I want to offer them up to somebody who would get some use out them for cost plus shipping. as they are 2 sizes to big for me. I DO NOT want to see these go up on ebay. I paid 6$ for them so this is the chance for somebody to get some shell shoes for around 20-25$.
Will be uploading images in a minute.
***edited to add rules as I've had multiple PMs within seconds. Im going to give it tell noon tomorrow then chose someone at random to receive the shoes.***

Looks like no more 8.5D @docalden2013
I think these boots will be used a lot! Congrats to all who got on the pre-order so far.post #88692 of 1224168/9/14 at 8:06pmQuote:
The seller has actually just ended the auction for the Cigar Pitt. Pretty disappointing, as these were my size.post #88693 of 1224168/9/14 at 10:35pmi decided to send the black indys back to leffot and get on the natty cxl pre-order - at least i hope did. i made the transaction over the phone but haven't gotten the paypal invoice yet. for those wondering, the guy a i spoke to (paul) said that a C width would be no problem.post #88694 of 1224168/10/14 at 5:20ampost #88695 of 1224168/10/14 at 5:58amQuote:Originally Posted by cincikid
CXL: You can do either Venetian Shoe Cream of Saphir Renovateur. Nich Horween recommends VSC but Saphir is just as good or probably better (though it is much more expensive as well). Some people would also use mink oil on CXL, particularly on natural CXL.
Chamois: You do not need any shoe care products since it is saturated with oils. I brush mine once in a blue moon.
You did not provide any information about your third pare, but you can go through one of the numerous SF threads dedicated to the shoe care, like this.
Many thanks for the answer. Now I сan catch a break.
The third one is Shell Cordovan Long Wing Tip. I bought a Burgundy Cordovan Paste Wax or it's good to use some Saphir too?
Thanks for the link I'm going to dig it.
Oh and one more thing, I've searched a bit but do you have a list of acronyms sometimes it's hard to understand what are CXL, LWB, LS, NATCXL?
