^^^really i always liked black cordovan. i feel that the aged old cordovan boots actually have better character buildup in terms of how the shine fades and the creases etc.

but #8's definitely have much better patina/color with wear

I've been using Montana Pitch-Blend Leather Dressing that I bought at Leffot. It does darken them. And I haven't used shoe trees.

Thanks for the roy pics. They look nice. With the saddle dressing treatment they almost look like kudu leather, at least in the pics. Quite a bit darker with less red peaking through than other roys I've seen. Granted, I haven't seen many.

My big toe hits right around where the white stitching curves around the toebox. Does that sound about right? There is def some room but I feel that the 7s will be too tight.

I size down a half in all my Indies. These seem like they might be a touch too big.

Those aren't a regular Alden model or something you've done before, are they? The design is pretty much perfect regardless of the leather used.

My latest pick up. Basically a "Roy" shoe. Brown Chromexcel leather, natural reverse welt, plantation crepe sole. I have a decent amount of boots at this point so I wanted to find a casual shoe. These were the winners!

Got them from Leffot in NYC. My wife and I ended up chatting with Steven for about two hours about shoes. His store is beautiful and his knowledge and selection of shoes is amazing. It was a fantastic experience. Highly recommended!
