A unique kiltie make-up an extra perf wingtip from Beams along with some vintage Atoms (none of the pics are mine). I really love the large punching on the Atoms, and the finishing seems a bit more refined than today's output.

Thank you, I don't actually own them yet. I figure I should be able to get them looking half decent.

What do you guys use for shoe trees for your Alden boots? I have lots of regular shoe trees, but no boot trees... but I'm not sure if that's important for boots that just go over your ankles?

I just use standard shoe trees on all my Alden boots, seems to work fine for me.

so rad, i prefer smaller perforations. kiltys are interesting. maybe not with a long wing...seems a little gauche. i like the exposed eyelets on the top atoms

Some of the guys in my office wear those same shoes, but with tassels on top of the kiltie.  Tassels, kiltie, short wing.  Only other difference is that they are not two-tone.  Either all black or burgundy (they call burgundy cordovan).  Needless to say, I don't live in the most fashion conscious city, but at least I can say that I'm not originally from here.  People also wear striped shirts with striped suits and striped ties.  I could go on for days...

This fashion mistake is committed by many men, in many cities. And it's always unfortunate.

Since the thread is currently discussing a few fixes to shell that have been accomplished, riddle me this. Do you think this is salvageable?

Deer boning should help. Try Google " deer bone cordovan".

A little polish (gasp! on cordovan!?!?) will go a long way with that kind of surface abrasion imo. As always a good amount of brushing too!

Another possible alternative is to have Alden re-dye the shoe if/when you send them back for refurbishing. This might be worth consideration if the aforementioned suggestions do not resolve the scratches. Good luck!
