post #44071 of 87481
I know that this is for the buy/sell forum but:

1. I am not looking to buy or sell. only to trade
2. this trade request is really only for the Alden community, outsiders just won't get it..

So.. I have recently been wearing an orthotic in my Alden boots with great success in terms of increased comfort and better fit. This orthotic works well in some boots and not so well in others.
At the present time I am looking to trade for a larger size in two of my favorite boots:

1. Alden Wingtip boot Plaza last cigar shell cordovan from Leather Soul. I have size 8 and wish to swap for size 8.5. Worn less than 20 times. Mac method.
2. Alden Wingtip boot Plaza last #8 shell cordovan from J. Gilbert. I have size 8 and wish to swap for size 8.5. Worn less than 15 times. Mac method.

Currently I wear these without an orthotic and they are OK. But would be better for me to have the orthotic with .5 size increase. I have no interest in selling either pair.

thanks

dibs on the cigar LS boots if you decide to sell.

I might consider a Rolex 5512 gilt dial with pointed crown guards for trade. Otherwise the same boot in size 8.5 will do.

If I get hit in the head with something heavy and decide to sell, you get first dibs.

Thank you sir, and good luck with your hunt.

 

The 5512 with pointed crown guards is definitely a great watch for sure.

How would you guys fill in the below?

#8: NST Tanker Boot
Cigar: ???
Ravello: Cap Toe Day Tripper Boot
Whiskey: LHS

I'm interested in answers that are not PTB, chukka, or LWB.

With whiskey LHS already in that rotation/collection, I'm thinking Cigar medallion cap toe blucher or maybe wingtip boot.

I saw some love for shell strands a few pages back.  Which would you prefer... Burgundy shell strands or Alden for BB medallion cap toe blucher in color 8?  I know one is a balmoral and the other a blucher, but indulge me; I'm curious... smile.gif
