Great looking LWB's!
Well, the Alden bug has officially taken hold of me. Thanks to you guys and your awesome pictures and advice, I could no longer contain myself to lurking status and have instead been beset by one of the worst shopping sprees I can remember going on, the fruits of which I've decided to post about.
My apologies for the crappy iPhone pics, but I got a patient cancellation and am thinking about Aldens instead of doing progress notes. Here is yesterday's booty, the Color 8 975s sent by CitiShoes. The Indy's came the same day and are the Ultimate Indy's from LeatherSoul Beverly Hills (I'm loving the Commando soles!). I'm going with the Mac break-in procedure and am having fun researching shoe care products on the Hanger Project site.
I'll post more pics later, but in the midst of last Friday's snow storm, the UPS folks delivered J.Crew's brown CXL LWBs and the snuff suede LWBs. I feel like I want to change shoes between each patient I'm seeing...
I didn't understand it before the packages arrived, but I can now see how it feels like one can never have enough of these darn shoes!
Quick question: Has anyone used colored laces on their Indy's? I stopped by the mall today and picked up red Benjos laces, but can't tell if they should go back or not...
browse this thread and see what shoes strike your fancy. that's what began my fledgling alden obsession...page 1 of this thread. any major gaps in your AE collection (for example, are you missing full strap loafers or perhaps split toes)? how much shell do you have?
where you live also influences whether you can try on shoes in-store to get a feel for what size you are in the different alden lasts.
Rare break in the weather today and the snow on the deck melted so I took advantage
Thanking Uncle Mac for turning me on the these
Thank you sir!
