Now THAT is a gunboat.

So if a 975 is about $650, what if we put a devlish twist on it and said "Let's say you were only allowed to have a shoe collection valued at $2000 total (excluding sneakers/work out shoes)?" 

 

How many Aldens would you end up having?

Pitt Boot Color 8.Cigar - $685
LWB Color 8 antique - $685
403 chromexcel - $485

$145 left in my pocket.

Interesting. Good to know of a good SE MI cobbler, too. Personally, I would have let him polished them; I bet they'd come out amazing. At least throw some conditioner and Kiwi on them to give them some color, maybe?

0 or 1. I'm fond of the $400 #8 PTB's seconds I got off TSM.

 

Certainly not a long-wing. The only value-proposition to Alden is in their shell shoes, and a LWT has to be the worst platform to showcase shell IMO.

Shell Indys have not been on my want list until I saw these.  Absolutely magnificent!  They are now on my list.  Not sure if I should thank you or not. Enjoy.

LWT?  Did you mean LWB?

Disagree on both counts. Alden is quality, shell or calf.

 

I think the #8 Shell LWB might be the perfect platform for Shell

 

I only have Whiskey Shell LWB's and I love them and look forward to the aging/patina process to make them even better.
