I apologize for the noob question, but would these be the correct shoe trees to purchase for my 8.5E shell indys? : size medium

Probably your best best. Or Shoemart seconds to find the European and Japanese makeups

FYI, alden does not make balmorals on the modified last. Bluchers only.

Gorgeous. Bals are not my thing but these look beautiful and illustrate why Whiskey is so nice. The two-toned patina is very unique and is most evident with Whiskey cordovan.

Fuck Alden. Everytime I am interested in getting a pair there is something that stops me. It has been this way for years.

I decided to have some fun and picked up some in ice blue, etc, and they're.. kinda cool. For those of you wearing similar boots as mine, you want the 54" laces. I ordered the 63" due to a sizing mistake on another pair I picked up locally (I though they were 54", but were 48" and too short), but they look good and I wrap the ankle, but the 54" should be perfect. That little bit of color really does make it stand out a bit more, if that's your thing. I'd like to find flat waxed black laces, but maybe not so much now that I've found these.

I've read a few comments here about not liking colored laces, but I'm kind of diggin' them and am thinking about picking up a pair or two. Thanks for the link!

Allen Edmonds also sells Benjo color laces online with free shipping:

You couldn't pay me to wear it.

So, now I sort of understand why I can't buy any Alden shell boots that I want.

 

(1) there is a shortage of shell cordovan leather from Horween

(2) it takes 1 horse butt to make a pair of shoes

 

sort of puts everything in perspective now.
