I have been waiting since August for a Leffot preorder on their Greenwich boot in reverse chamois. I have also come close to giving up a few times out of frustration. However, after seeing these, I will definitely wait them out. Seeing yours with a few miles on them has me even more excited about mine. Hopefully mine will age as nicely as yours. Well done.

Looks like the catalogue, not the box, right? I'm lucky my wife accepts (not encourage) my shoes.

I wished you had worn these to the New Years party". I am stunned as we've been trough some heated conversation in the past on Alden's so I press the conversation a bit. We actually talked about them individually and here is what I learned. She said, ya know most women start looking at a mans shoes first, it indicates if he's successful and up on his wardrobe .. Who am I to argue that? I am stoked at this point in the conversation. It then drifts to styles... I find out she absolutely loves the NST, LHS, Tassels and a little less but still likes the Chukkas. HATES the Wingtip design. On one hand I am pleased she even noticed my Alden passion, on the other a bit disappointed in her NOT liking LWB. But marriage is about give and take. Why fight congress? So to that end.

I have a brand spanking new pair of 975's sitting in a box in my closet that I picked up from Haberdash sale at the incredible price of $515. Not looking to make a red cent, just what I have into them. Would ask for PayPal fee and Shipping only. Offered to SF community first. Never worn, box, bags everything. Pictures in sig.

I will then purchase a model she loves... Happy Wife Happy Life

PM me if your interested.

 

Very nice! I can only hope for that conversation soon. I'm keeping it a bit on the down low for now until we find a new house. After that then all bets are off. She's made some comments on my AE's that I have which is appreciated. Only just starting the Alden madness. Not go crazy, just pick up when I can and good deals. As long as she is ok with it and it comes out of my slush fund I think we'll be fine. 

 

I do agree women notice shoes first. However I didn't get started into proper footwear until after we had started dating. So was kind of a moot point, and I can't say oh I've had those for years. Wonder what life would have been like with good shoes right after college, so many possibilities...

Do you guys think it would insane to have #8 shell Indys as 'beater' boots instead of some CXL Indys? Just wondering... rolleyes.gif

Sure! That's how I used mine. The shape of Trubalance doesnt work for me so I sold them.

As long as you stick to it...I always claim I'm gonna use a bout like that as a "beater" then I actualky receive them and they are too pretty and I never do. Learned my lesson and bought some Vibegs. Lol

All this wife/partner talk got me thinking...are Aldens your first foray into "collecting"/hoarding shoes, or are folks here transitioning from sneakers or other brands? I only have one pair of Aldens, but if I ever do get a little collection going, my wife would be used to it given the number of sneakers I have.

Someone here posted few pics a while back on using them as beaters and got them recrafted. Check it out.
