What happens to the cork bed in the resole process, is it replaced with new cork?  Could B. Nelson do this instead of sending my LHS Cordo Penny to Alden?  Thanks for the input, it's time for new soles on my #8's.

I believe they shoot new cork in before resoling.  I haven't used B Nelson, but I'm sure they do this.

The shoe trees also seem to keep the rolls and creases down on my CXL boots.

That belt looks great.

Here is the one I picked up. Can get it in 1.5 or 1.25 width and silver or gold hardware (I got both sets of hardware for a bit extra). CXL looks great and wears perfect and the price is right.

the method states that wax should be avoided until it is necessary. the ultimate goal is never to use wax. my whiskey indy has not been wax

Funny that they're listing the color as "Repello".
Repollo is a type of stain resistant finish; not a color.

^ haaaa. ive seen similar naming oddities. hot cup of snuff suede anyone?

post #32517 of 86579

^ is $425 a good deal for these suede shoes?  isn't that about market price for these?

post #32518 of 86579
just about. Alden prices circa 2010. yoox has a 10% discount floating around. $385 shipped for that shoe is not bad at all

The vamps are only slightly mismatched in shade, but its very very hard to tell in natural light. I think the lamp I had on the shoes while taking pics made the reflection on each vamp appear significantly different.
