Our first Shell Cordovan Alden makeup has arrived! Upper is Color 8 shell, and we used a medium brown sole to give it a cool contrast. Barrie last, double leather sole, flat welt, all round eyelets. There's 22 pairs available.

Alden for Epaulet Brixton Boot Color 8 with Light Sole: $680

Beautiful boot - FYI you need to update the text (title is ok) on your website (the description still refers to Ravello)

And the captoes are definitely on my list. The plain toe Indys, as well. I'm afraid the shifter will destroy the stitching on the trad Indy.

Thanks, the Indy toe stitching is cosmetic only so it won't hurt the boot if you break a couple stitches. I asked about that when I had regular Indys.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find captoe dress shoes (blucher or bal) on the Barrie last? I know LeatherSoul had one or two custom makeups but I think they're sold out. Looking for an 8.5D or 9D. Thanks in advance.

Alden DC has a few makeups that might be what you are looking for as of this afternoon when I stopped by to pick up Cigar Captoe boots on the Grant last. Give them a call.

I'm really liking the recent forays into Color 8 with natural or antiqued edgetrim...the LWB, Leffot Tankers, Leathersoul shortwings, and now these Brixton boots.

Now if someone can bring in some Color 8 Indys with natural or antiqued edgetrim + commando soles....that would really be something!

(I wouldn't be mad about a black Pebble/Alpine-grain Indy with antiqued edgetrim either.)

Would anyone be interested in a pair lightly worn Alden JCrew plaintoe bluchers (barrie last, 8D) for a good price? I picked them up from a member and theyre a tad too small. have been worn a few times and I had toe taps and heel taps installed. Shoot me a pm if anything.

The Shoemart seconds list had a number of captoes supposedly on the Barrie last in my size (not the same as your size). You might try to look for the seconds list in your size and see if there are any available.

^ Agreed, I'm really digging the trim on these Brixton boots, but I still think I'm going to go for the Ravello version over these.

Unless you already preordered them I think they are all spoken for besides a size 12. Might be a long wait for a re-reorder.


NAMOR: Again sweet captoes.

The short answer is wear them. They are boots that are as good or better made as the ones soldiers wore in WWI, every day in the snow, mud, heat and doing all kinds of labor intensive tasks.

BUT, If they are new why risk getting water spots. I have a pair of black cordovan boots that I wear in the rain and snow and they now have what we call water spots. I knew that this could happen and am not mad, and i still wear them all the time. But would it bother you if this happened? Scuffs and scratches can be smoothed out….I have seen this. Some people never get water spots….some people say their water spots go away….but what if you get them and they never go away?

As for hiking a light trail these boots would be as good as or better than most boots out there. If it is not going to rain and the trail is good I would just wear them. You sure will not have to worry about a snake biting through them! nod[1].gif
