Yeah. That is kind of my joke. How is that only a $4 price difference. :-) Art if you are reading this, please disregard.

One of those things that further makes me realize, I just don't know art and/or how to value it. I'll stick to shoes.

1. Does Alden make a non-shell NST boot on the Aberdeen last? I love the split-toe design but The Shoe Mart only has shell and it's in black and #8. I'm looking for calf.

2. I need sizing advice for the Aberdeen last. I'm a 9.5UK in Carmina Rain, 9UK in Carmina Robert, 10US in AE 5-Last, 9.5 in Meermin Hiro, and 9UK in Alfred Sargent 109. All are medium/normal width.

I noticed there is a NFB blucher shoe so maybe NFB means calf and NST means shell? Perhaps what I want is a NFB boot? Thanks in advace smile.gif

J. Gilbert has black and brown calf NST boots.

It's all good, gramps.  The @tifosi vs. @rydenfan you're-a-troll-no-I'm-not-yes-you-are-no-I'm-not-shtick is a time-honored SF tradition.  Brings a tear to my eye, it does…

Guess who won the eBay auction for Color 2 LWBs?  Yes, I did say I didn't think they were attractive, but somehow they've grown on me.  Plus, this completes my LWB rainbow.  At $1,424, I think they were a relatively good deal!

Alden and the great shell bubble of 2014.

When shoes that grow on you are a deal for $1400...

My guess is the Alden Police Boot...if you are going off retail value.
