Agreed. They provide a military-esque sturdiness. I can't wear square-toed shoes, as I'm stocky.

I think these are the Carminas:

You make a very good point. I guess secretly my 'rule' keeps me from buying too many shoes per year. As we've discussed before, Alden shell is very addictive. nod[1].gif

I recommended a c/t blucher because it is generally considered a bit less formal than a c/t bal; additionally, in the case of the black shell 2161, it is a c/t blucher that is certainly formal enough to be worn with suits. I do.

nephew,
i do like the b & h look (big and heavy look) but it is all personal taste. barrie last versus the aberdeen last or plaza last. the alden last give you the opportunity to go from sleek to gunboats
