I wish I'd have known! Broke out my Filson 257 for the first day of school today, but alas, no Aldens on my feet...

Why do people not pick up after their dogs? Shit!

stumbled across a post from the dead in this thread--probably the most hilarious thing i have read on sf to date.

I rocked the Filson 257 in brown with a pair of Alden 684s combo today!

This has probably been discussed but I can't really find a definitive answer. I really want a pair of unlined chukkas in snuff suede but I live in Seattle. I've heard that high quality full grained leather suede will hold up to the elements well as long as it is given a chance to dry. Is this generally true? I rarely find my shoes get soaked but they will get a little wet walking around and I will make sure to dry them before wearing them again (always give me shoes 24 hours in shoe trees anyway). Am I just throwing money away or getting stuck with a summer shoe here?

Also went with #4 on the 4th, but with the Saddleback Leather BC

They are pretty minimal. I passed on a pair due to your concerns - they would not see much action outside of summer around here. That and they kind of look like elf shoes...

I wouldn't call them elf shoes, but they are more tapered in the toebox than other Aldens. Look at a full lace boot with a leather liner. Check J Gilbert or Alden of Carmel for something in a commando sole. Personally, I would still spray them with suede protector, but that can change the color of the shoe.
