Huge congrats on one of the best. From SW&D to more business casual this is great last and shape is incredible. Check Instagram for Modified last and see some great fits.

We are lucky to own these.. Took Anatomica over 4 years to get this makeup.

My latest and greatest acquisition! It's the 1st time I've purchased pre-loved boots. They have been hardcore disinfected, wiped, and brushed. I have some venetian shoe cream coming in a few days. That should help bring these beauties back to life.

 

Ravello Wingtip Boots. Waterlock sole with vibram on the bottom. It's not the large lug style vibram but rather a thin layer.

re: the Defender I picked some up but before I apply to these Ravello boots (and others) is there any reason NOT to use them for every pair?

Besides hopping back in a time machine, your best bet will be picking up some shoes from Haberdash on Black Friday. They're having 25% off one item. I assume it includes Aldens.

Another option is visiting The Shoe Mart and picking out some lovely 2nds.

The third option is to keep up to date with this thread of Alden Enablers. smile.gif

EDIT: Haberdash sale EXCLUDES ALDEN frown.gif

Just not suede or nubuck per the instructions on the bottle.

Does the Shoe Mart seconds list usually include C widths or is it normally just D and E widths?

Mike, give me the answer I want to hear!

Sir, there is a Seconds list for virtually any size that Alden makes including A, B, C, EEE, ... Just sign up for those lists. With that said, the offerings in those narrow sizes tend to be pretty limited. Like maybe 2 or 3 pairs. Not like the big D size offerings by a long shot.

Thank you Mike. I expected that if they were available on the list, the styles/quantities would be much more limited compared to more common sizes/widths.

Just trying to gauge how realistic picking up rare shades of shell would be, but one cannot predict that.

How often does the Shoe Mart run a second's sale?
