I have noticed in your pictures where you have the mirror in front of your shoes that the toes of the soles almost always look completely flat.  In other words, the common wear that many people either choose to live with, or they put toe taps on to prevent, doesn't seem to exist on your shoes.  Obviously there is alot of variance in the wear in that area depending on people's gait, walking style, etc., but to see almost no toe wear at all is unusual.  What is your secret?

Do you mean JGilbert via the AoC website? I ask only because AoC doesn't currently offer color 8 boots on the plaza.

It's because he does the Mac break-in method!

 

3 separate wearings on carpet so the shoes aren't stiff when you hit the pavement with them.  Thats what causes the excessive wear on the toe of the sole.  (Stiff shoes on pavement)

 

It's been discussed previously

I don't disagree with anything you said. However, I submit that some, even after using the Mac method, will experience much more toe wear than Mac does.

Agreed.  It could also be that he has so many pairs in the rotation that each shoe gets worn less than typical Alden owners.  If Mac wears a pair of is shoes once every two weeks, it will have less wear than someone with a pair the same age that is worn twice a week.
