Ditto. Totally out of place on that makeup, too, IMO.

Beautiful boot. Tone looks awesome in that light/pic. And people not wearing their boots because of the weather is ridiculous IMO - rock 'em!

Excuse me, but do you sell MAN SHOES? I'm a MAN, and I really need a pair of MAN SHOES. Do you sell them?

Agreed. My crepe sole Aldens are my go-to Friday shoes (comfort) and wet weather shoes.

Would color #8 longwings work well in both casual and more formal environments?  I work for an IT company, so it isn't suit and tie every day, but I was wondering if they would work for the rare cases I got to wear a suit at weddings, interviews, etc.  I'd rather avoid black shoes, since I feel like they're more limited.

Rob - Were you picking up a two-piece for the little lady at the shop next door? Or is that where you go to get your knives sharpened?

And let's not forget, they're good for picking up all the crap you walk on all day and bringing it back into your home. As you might guess, I'm not a crepe fan either. shog[1].gif

Yes, they're very quiet  .  .  .

^^ If you are looking to be 100% accurate it should be "knifes sharped" (I couldn't bring myself to type that...)

they are both very early models, a pity that they havent pusblished the black or the natural one in this size, or one with crepe sole. before i had owned the roy boot and 403 in size e and d, but they where to big for my small feet.
