My imposters... These are my introduction to leather soled shoes; my gateway drug.  Alden for J Crew came shortly afterward.
Allen Edmonds Auburn and Florsheim Pebble grain LWBs.

Happy Memorial Day my friends...


RTP, very nicely done sir

Have a great day all!

Awesome collection photos everyone - I only have one shell, one CXL, and two suedes right now. Hopefully I'll catch up in the shell department somewhere between 6 months and 25 years when all my pre-orders are finally ready smile.gif

CTYGGG, unbelievable collection my friend!!  I am especially intrigued by the whiskey monk strap chukkas and the color 8 saddle NSTs...  very well done!

Nice line-up!  Sure has grown quickly!  It is funny how the Marlows are the only non-Alden shoes that are accepted in this thread.

 

I also like your Calf/Shell comparison shots.  Do you wear the calf much?  I haven't bought anything in calf since I became interested in shell.

Thanks for sharing!  Post pics of your Cigar Cap Toe's upon arrival (they aren't terribly common on this thread, not sure i've ever seen ITW pics of the TSM's w. antique trim) and wear in good health!

The pic of your pristine Cigar PTBs is very appealing to my eye.  Maybe one day...

 

We will overlook the fact that you included previously posted pics, and shots of shoes that you no longer own, but only this once can we excuse that.wink.gif

Thanks for sharing.

 

Is that a Kirkwood?

 

How about the red WTB with brass eyelets?  Oxblood Brixton?

 

Is that a CXL WTB on Plaza?

 

Fingers crossed that they fit.  That is puzzling about the first pair puzzled.gif

 

Is it possible that they will surface eventually and you will have a bonus pair?

However, thought I'd share my family photo of brothers from different mothers on this memorial day.

The All-American Boot Collection:

Nice boot collection!  And thanks for sharing.

 

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed in the turnout so far...


Nice boots Clambake, and I agree Bakes!  I suppose this is a holiday weekend and many are out.
