If Alden won't correct this, perhaps you could redye them black. Not sure if that would work...

The area where the waterlock touched the golf shoes turned purple ffffuuuu.gif

I've currently got said area covered with corn starch in hopes it pulls some of it out.

The use of cedar shoe racks will prevent this. I recommend them.

Very nice looking shoe. I'm thinking about picking up a pair for myself when I return from vacation at the end of the month.

^ You can get them at Jos. A. Bank for a song, especially when there's a sale.  I think I got ten suits, fourteen shoe racks, ten ties, handkerchiefs, belts and dress shirts for like $8.

FWIW, I recently had the DC Cigar captoe and the Cigar Chukkas at my place and the DC boots were VERY dark by comparison (almost black). The chukkas had much more brown and even some olive green tones to the shell and were far more pleasing a color to me. I had really desired the captoe boot with commando sole but shifted my thinking to either a chukka or PTB after having them in-house. 

 

My Ravello chukkas are due to arrive today. I am a bit nervous regarding the color after your comments about them being quite dark and not as red. I will post some pics when they arrive.

Ravello PTB from Alden SF today.

Ryden i wouldn't worry about it until you see them I'm sure it varies from pair to pair. I think i let the photos of others ravello offerings influence my expectations too much.

Waiting for me at the door today:

 

Very Nice! I have had those in my cart twice a day for the last couple of days. I have hesitated to pull the trigger because they are only 2 eyes and several on here even recently have mentioned slippage and a loose fit. And I have no idea how the Barrie last will fit me except to start half a size down. For my first Alden's I could see those fitting perfectly into my collection, close to truffle but not quite. Your thoughts?

Alden SF Cigar LWBs for this pre-Blizzard Thursday here in NYC. Some interesting colors starting to come out now in these. I've also included a pic from my first wearing of these for comparison.

FWIW, w/ my NatCXL Indys, if you get a tree that really fills the toebox and pay special attention to brushing them out after every wear, the wrinkles won't ever become overly obvious.

Got them from Leffot. I got shoe trees, and though I likely won't polish after every wear since they are brand new, i certainly will polish since I don't want the leather to crack.

I haven't put trees in my Indys boot, you think I should?
