I think that it may be a chukka, as that model appears numerous times in other photos on theagatineeyelet, where I believe the image originated.

 

Edit: However, now that I look for it, I can not find it, so please don't jump down my throat if I am mistaken.

That's all folks! That's why it's a bad ad IMO. You don't even get a full pic of the box.

And the site also says that navy is so rare, most people have ever seen it or know of it's existence. Maybe this is an old post? Navy seems to be pretty abundant lately from other shoemakers.

I'm 99% sure that's a whiskey chukka. I remember seeing a post a few years back.

Obviously sans trees for their entire life.

Hey gents . . . . Something of a PSA. 9901's for sale on Ebay. Funny thing is, I purchased this very pair from Shoemart irregular list in 2011. Seller lists defects as "Some small scratches on the left shoe." However, if you look at the photos showing the arch area on each shoe, you can see a kind of clumsy half oval patch. Never saw anything like that before or since and couldn't figure out what kind of defect that was or even if they used shell in the patch.

That is jasonfoote303's photo of Whiskey shell folds while the shoe is being bent. This was posted a few years ago in this thread. 

 

I believe he works at Unionmade and he ran a great but now defunct Alden blog at:

Grant last boots the flaw is how the tongue on one pair shifts from center while the other just always stays centered.

 

I tried different lacing, and they are well fitting. Would roughing up the inner side keep it from slipping?

Last week was tan suede for casual Friday, today it's snuff:

Yup that's what I was looking at. Maybe I'm just sick but that still looks like a dick to me...maybe it's just the angle the photo was taken.
