First ever Whiskey Wenesday for me, finally got around to wearing the PTBs I recently picked up from Alden DC. I got these at a 30% discount because of a small black mark on the right shoe, just below the crease and just above where the lacing starts. It's barely even visible in this picture. Also, it does seem to have a bit of tiger striping on the right shoe, but it's not too extreme and doesn't bother me. Can't complain for brand new Whiskey PTBs at just over $500.
I did notice that these feel slightly roomier than my Cigar LWBs in the same size. The instep is a little high, which is why the quarters are almost touching when laced tightly. I might need to stick a tongue pad in there to help with that.
Along with the Ravello WT boots, I picked up 2 of my grails within the last month! Time for a little breather for at least a few months now.
