I always go on Ebay and look in men's shoes under cordovan see if there's some hidden gem. I had the 721 and it was well made and a beautiful color shell. That being said it's a workboot. If wish that all of my RRL workbooks were in shell. I wish that all of my Viberg service boots were in shell
I've sort of been converted over to cordovan over the years and whether it's a boat shoe or a chukka or a balmoral or a LWB or a sneaker (joke), it's always more fun in cordovan. If a $750 workbook in cordovan is now $530; I'll pass it along so that if it helps one person; at least it helped somebody.
It's a little crazy that I throw a bone out there and immediately it becomes a contest between my post and some Alden. Wolverine Cordovan made by Allen Edmonds are not as nice as most Alden shell offerings. At the same time, there would be no PSA if these things were being sold for list.
The point was that they are 30% off. I like a lot of Alden's, but some I would never pay list for many of them. I like the Wolverine 744, but would never pay $750 for it.
Alden's are up there with my favorite shoes. Wolverine makes workbooks and this particular workbook, one which is carried by Leffot and other specialty retailers, is now $530 down from $750. If you like it, great. If not, also great.
If everybody dropped PSA's for hidden gems (like the one that I made for the J.Crew Ravello LWB with gold eyelets or, just a couple days ago for the Ravello Cap Toe Jumper Boot or the one that I read about the Viberg/Leffot service boot in shell #8), this forum would be so much better....IMO
positive vibrations......I'n'I vibration yeah!
