It took me a while to realize this, but I tend to agree. I'd further restrict it to NST boots on the barrie or plaza. NST shoe or boot + aberdeen doesn't do it for me, though I know for many here it does.

Was just perusing the MC B/S, and was surprised at the number of Alden offerings for folks between 8-10.5 over there. Some deals to be scored on the boards, gentlemen...
post #43716 of 95006

After reading this thread for so long i finally got myself a pair of Aldens with flexwelt.

Really comfortable.

But i only noticed the below after i got back.

I bought it at Alden SF on holiday and now am back in Asia.

 

The wrinkle you see in the pic is only one this part of the one shoe alone and not present anywhere else.

 

This is my most expensive shoe and my first GOOD pair.

 

1- Is this something i should be worried about?

 

Living in a tropical country with bad roads and wet weather unexpectedly always, there will be times where these will get wet.

2- How will these leather soles last? Its my first pair with them.

3- Any protective measures i need or should do to protect the shoe/leather sole in these climates?

 

The Alden store threw in a small bottle of boot cream and told me thats all i need to upkeep them. Not much of a wax n shine person, as long as the leather is clean n well conditioned i am a happy camper.

 

4- So will cleaning the shoe and applying the cream + brush be enough?

By Jove, those look like some brand new Alden shoes. Congratulations! Lace before walking. I find it cuts down on tripping over ones feet. Seriously, the LWB's are the bomb.

I agree (LWB and PTB).  NST on the Barrie doesn't look as pointy (as per SevenFTG's advice months ago).  Not sure where you are getting the Cigar NST on Aberdeen; the ones at TSM are on the barrie.

So if I also agree, that would be +5, right?

I personally like the NST but just like the other two better, LWB being my first choice of the three.

Lwb + ptb = happiness

NST

 

I am a big NST Fan.

PTB, not so much

If the NST was not on the aberdeen in Alcibiades' post, my answer (PTB + LWB) might have changed.

Looks like growth marks in the leather.
They're not going to go away but they're only a problem if it bothers you.
