A CXL grab from the recent seconds blast. I had my doubts, but they're growing on me. Fortunately, I've had pretty good luck the last couple of times I've rolled the 2nds dice. I've had 1st qualities that showed far worse defects than these. It'll be interesting to see what retailer this model shows up at.

REguy, those look outstanding, would be great to see them once they have some miles as well. nice pickup!

Can see why you might have hesitated, but they look great and will certainly wear in well.

What last?

^ Aberdeen. However, for some reason, possibly the stitching, I've always thought the tassel loafers have a pointier toe box than lace-ups on the Aberdeen.

^^ I think that's true, and even more true when it's an NST on Aberdeen.

I have ravello models with each trim - dark and antique. I like both, and I like having both. Personally, I prefer my ravello PTBs with dark trim. Others will disagree. I'm fine with that.

The NST shoe on the Aberdeen is probably the pointiest-toed shoe Alden makes, or at least it seems that way.

Since we're on this topic - I wish I had bought the NST boot on the Aberdeen when TheShoeMart still had it in-stock. My feet can't handle the Barrie last unfortunately...

REALLY? that sounds awesome would love to see. I'm guessing they don't have a website?
