Are these "Michigan Boots" new (via Ben Silver)?

I am with DV. Your Black Mac's are the pinnacle of Black Shell.

The Ravello LWBs are awesome. Great pickup eye heart NY.

Not sure if that particular model for Ben Silver is new or unique but I'm pretty sure the design has been around. I like it.

^ The 9.5 Michigan boot was on the latest seconds list.

Big fan of those Michigan boots as well - too bad there's so few pictures online. 270 degree flat welt, it looks like? And white toe stiching, or perhaps tan?
post #90640 of 122416
Does the welt get worn down from resoles or general wear. I guess what I would like to know, does a resole of a brand new unworn shoe have a detrimental impact on the long term longevity of the shoe/boot?

Every time any shoe is resoled it has a detrimental impact on the longevity of the shoe/boot.  If possible, look back at @MoneyWellSpent's posts on this topic.  It's not necessarily the welt that gets worn down but rather the stitching from the goodyear welt process that weakens the upper's connection to the sole.  MoneyWS 's terminology is much more precise than mine.

 

At the risk of upsetting @sinnedk, this wasn't meant to brush you off by making you sift through throusands of pages.  I suspect MWS will chime in.

Can someone confirm the shoes in this picture are Alden's? Which model are they?

That conversation is old now, I've moved on

Maybe I'm lost on this one.  Is Kathy doing a ravello boot on commando?  I might actually like that more than the Day Tripper.  I suspect it's too late for me to get in line if she is indeed putting in a run of these.  Interesting to know for the future though.
