Agreed. I don't like anything with buckles, but I kind of like the George boot. Would probably buy it if it were in a lace-up model.

I own a now-discontinued black shell boot on the barrie with storm welt. It is the exact same as a chukka, but for the fact it has a single buckle and no laces. I like it quite alot.

If anyone is looking for a pair of Cigar LWB, I've got a new pair in my sig.

what happened to that pair of day trippers in 11d for sale on ebay...what did they go for?

These were my first shell shoes almost two years ago. I bought these and Ravello Wingtip boots from Shoe Mart.

Cigar LWB - They still get plant of wear and are some of my favorite casual shoes

Thought that the Alden Community might like to see some other variations of Shell.

Pictured Below:

Top Row: Alden Captoe Boot in #8, Alden Ravello WT Boot, Alden Indy in Cigar, Allen Edmonds Dalton in Walnut Cordovan
Bottom Row: Carmina Monk in Navy Shell, Allen Edmonds Bradley in Burgandy Shell, Alden LWB in Cigar, Allen Edmonds Dundee in Cappuccino Cordovan.

Not pictures is a pair of Alden LWB in #8 and a soon to come pair of Carmina in Ruby Shell.

Well done Pastor, well done.

To me it looks like the color closest to the Cigar Indy in the top row is the cappuccino shell in the bottom:; not the cigar LWB!

Outstanding collection!  Is it me or is there not much of a difference in color between your cigar Indy and the Ravello wtip boot.  I have both the the ravello and cigar LWB.  If they both had the antique edge (my ravello has a dark brown edge), I'm not sure most could tell the difference without a close look.

A shame as I really like that loafer style (full strap).
Thanks for all the responses everyone. I like the tassels but a little on the fence as they just seem a little dressier than the full strap.

Have you tried putting a pad on teh back of the heal instead of the tongue?

I was also watching that one out of curiosity (I am awaiting my Day Trippers from Leffot--WTF?)  Maybe mr wigglr knows something?:
