You made two apologies that were definitely not needed. Firstly, calf is a great way to "gradually" work your way to shell. That's how I did it. Guys who buy shell as their first foray into higher-end footwear amaze me. Going from $100-150 shoes to $700 shoes in one leap is incredible.
Secondly, the picture may not be as good as say, CTYGGG's, but it's good enough to show that's a great pair of boots there. I don't wear much black and only have a few pair but that pair or something similar is now on my list.
Thanks for sharing.
noy trying to being argumentative but i do not agree with your point. would you feel the same from going from a honda to a bentley
I have much more to learn about shoe maintenance, but if I would have listened to the first person who sold me a pair of alden shell instead of using this forum for research, my shell shoes would have faaar too much wax paste on them. As it stands, I have four pair and have not done anything to them with the exception of the mac method. And they look great.
I know the method calls for very periodically using wax, but is it absolutely necessary?
only if necessary. the ultimate goal is never to wax
So is the sole on the Alden shell cordovan shoes.... well cordovan? Seems I've seen them stamped that way on the soles. If so, are the calf shoes soled with calf? Odd question I know but these Alden soles are harder than say C & J. Why?...
