post #93436 of 122416

So a few weeks back I was asking people if anybody had seen Aldens with a ripple sole. I didn't hear that anybody had seen a pair out there. 

After some research and planning, I bought a used pair of Alden round toe natural CXL's and had my local cobbler put the Vibram tan Ripple sole on them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think they turned out great!  

What do you all think?

If you like them, that's all that matters.

Wear them and enjoy them.

Exactly.  I don't get the whole ripple sole trend. Reminds me too much of Earth shoes in the 70's

Hope everyone is having a good week, and for those of us who had Monday off, a good start of a short week!

New acquisition from AoC over the weekend. Much more sleek compared to LWB though on the same Barrie last, probably due to the 270 welt, lack of storm welt, and lack of fudging.

Shortwing blucher in #8:

Same design in Ravello or Whiskey would be amazing biggrin.gif.

Cigar LWB under overcast sky for today:

Can you feel the ripples when you walk on them?  (This is a serious question, not a joke.)
