OK thanks a lot! Yeah I'm not sure why they termed it wish listed in my purchase confirmation email.

I am not the kind of guy that likes to send things back so I would probably take a really soft old toothbrush and see what happens. To me it looks like where the other shoe was rubbing it during shipping and should not be an issue.

They are plain toe shoes. Thanks for the tip but unfortunately it didn't work. I will continue to try and see what happens

I found a suede cleaning kit at Off Broadway shoes. It is a stiff brush and eraser.



So either return if you cannot live with that or try a stiffer brush.

I personally like the way suede plain toe's look with a little character so I have not used the kit much.

I think they are worth it if you've got the funds for another color 8 boot.  The NST generally run a little narrow so the barrie and the size up to TTS should be great. fing02[1].gif Good luck my friend...

Is this something normal that should brush out? Or is it an issue? I naturally tried brushing it with my finger a bit to see if it was a bit of extra material that would wipe off, but it didn't.

Reposting for a little guidance


Have you tried using a suede brush yet?  After brushing and applying the water-proofing, suede protector, it may not be as noticeable.  I can't really tell from the picture how bad it is.

Any idea what last this is? The seller doesnt know. Looks like grant or barrie. Im thinking most likely grant

Definitely grant.


It certainly looks like the 4060 (grant).

We are still early in the patina department but here's my patina Sunday entry.

Happy Easter to everyone on this very special Sunday!

ArtofWardrobe, I applaud you for your excellent idea to initiate Patina Sundays, but certainly the following guidelines are appropriate...

1.  Posted pics need to be your own (otherwise I could simply search through the internet).

2.  Pics shouldn't be artificially enhanced... Sorry El Argentino, while I absolutely love your snap speed pics, I was hoping to see aged shell and natural patina.  But by all means, keep posting those amazing looking pictures!

 

If I am out of line, forgive me.  I'll just observe and read.smile.gif

Love these!  worship.gif  Are they 974's or BB? I'm guessing BB.  I've been looking for this pair for a while now.

haha - I understand the point of Patina Sunday would be to show patina as TTL as possible, so I wouldn't snapseed those smile.gif Today's post wasn't meant to kick off Patina Sunday, just a standard shot from day's activities.

The writing inside says just 974. However, Mac pointed out to me that these are a six-eyelet pair, as opposed to the standard 974 which is five-eyelet. So they're either the BB version, or really, really old. (Ebay snag, so TBH I'm not sure).

Water spots and editing rules be damned. Sorry dudes, eggs have to be hidden and the kids must play.

Love the ideas brother, keep them coming. I know not all who follow this thread own Aldens so I thought it would be a good opportunity for those guys to get involved as well. But I'm cool with posting personal collection photos only, if that's what the group decides. Either way I'm hoping to see a lot of beat-to-shit Indys and golden brown whiskeys.

Edit: comma added after "only" for clarification

El aren't those the ones that you painstakingly restored... I think you had posted some before and after shots (and some progress shots too)... They look awesome...
