I wouldn't crease shoes I knew I wasn't going to keep. I ordered a couple shoes in different sizes, with the intention of keeping the one that fit best. They looked like they'd already been tried on when I got them, and I walked on carpet only enough to determine whether they were the right size.
I took these pictures for the enjoyment of thread followers.
Just listed some black PTB 9901s (size 9.5E) on eBay - excellent condition - starting bid is $0.99 if anyone's interested...
Hate to duplicate my post from a couple days ago, but I wanted to use my better camera and natural light to show just how great these ravello cap toes came out. The quality of these shells are top notch with almost no color differentiation between the two shoes and no bad spots, brush marks or other issues that is often seen with shell. I love this shade of ravello and it has always been my favorite shell color. Kudos again to Kathy at Alden D.C. and the SF members who got this make-up done!
Worthy of a double post, looking great & wear them in health.
Still bullshit - why would you crease shoes you know you're not gonna keep? Makes it a huge hassle for the next buyer to have to return and the store now has a pair of non-new shells.
That isn't really fair to Pappa. Brand new shells crease so easily. Just putting your foot into the shoe and standing up will put a slight crease in them. I've tried some on at Alden DC and it's virtually impossible to avoid and their salespeople there know this. Besides, the crease on that #8 PTB pictured earlier hardly qualifies as creased. Adam from Alden of Carmel would not cry foul with that.
