alden does not make black shell with antique edge any more.
You can find it; it's just really rare: http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/alden/45164h-plain-toe-boot-black-cordovan.html
edit -- but I guess since that's on crepe it's not really the edge, just the welt.
Do you guys find black shell hard to wear with everyday business casual-type stuff. And I mean that one the more casual side of casual. I think a makeup in the Indy boot with commando sole and speedhooks would be a pretty boss winter boot. Contemplating either that or the No. 8 chukka for my first shell purchase.
My wife tripped over and stepped on my Tankers this morning on her way out (my fault though for leaving them in the middle of the entry lol) and creased the shaft on them. I had a mini heart attack though when I saw them and now I will have to go on a brushing spree on them to see if I can minimize the creases. Such interesting issues to have, I suppose that means I am very blessed :)
