post #53461 of 94155

Can anyone recommend a simple dress belt that will match Alden's Burnished Dark Tan calfskin?  Is Allen Edmond's Chili-colored belts close?  I recently purchased the following pair but I'm having a lot of trouble finding an appropriately matching belt:

I found a tan leather belt from torino which matches very well. I purchased it at mgoldberg when I purchased my alden tan ptbs.

Thank you so much!  I was curious whether the Saddle color would work.  Looks like it will.  I don't have any belts by Torino, but they looks nice and the price-point is great for US made.

My leather soles are black now.

Are my shoes ruined? or should i resole them? Or should i just wear cheap pointy guido shoes to the ivy next time? I'm very sad because everytime i touch the sole of my shoes when im brushing them, all i can think of is the piss that is touching my hands. Please help frown.gif

Leather soles are gonna turn black/grey/dark from wear anyways.  I'm like you though, somewhat of a germ-a phobe.  Unless anyone here says otherwise, I'd spray the soles with Lysol to disinfect, being careful not to get it on other parts of the uppers. Leather soles are like sponges sopping up anything liquid.  However, I'd still wear them without babying them too much.

 

You could go with a nice pair with commando soles; they're hardly noticeable...

 

 

Hang in there and enjoy your shells my friend!
