I like my shoes to feel tight and just can't get over feeling like they would feel too loose?

None of my two eyelet shell chukkas are too loose. Some find that to be the case, but not all.

I had BNelson make the welt on my Cigar LWBs dark brown. biggrin.gif

I'm considering a Suede Tassel.  Already have #8 and have plans for Cigar Tassels, but thinking about suede in addition.

 

I haven't bought a pair of calf shoes since I got my first pair of shells.  That was 8 shoe purchases ago.  I barely wear my calf shoes anymore, but wore a pair on Wednesday due to the threat of inclement weather.  I have Swims, but just think of them as fit for occasions when I get caught in a bind.  If I'm sure it will rain/snow I leave the shell at home.

That is a shame. I would truly like to own a pair, but I have not found a comfortable size on that last.

Good choice my friend. Good choice.

All of my Aldens were bought online. The only somewhat local place I have is LSBH.

I don't (yet) own a pair of these, but I'd definitely wear them with jeans if I did.

Absolutely. JGilbert's plaza lasted color 8 boot on the commando sole is my favorite high boot make up. I have various models in that make up. And I wear them all with jeans, and of course with many other things as well.

Good advice here.

I wear my snuff suede unlined pubs without socks in the summer all the time.
