Thanks.  I'm in MA so we now have warm days and cool nights....

I could use a few of those down here in Tampa! Ehhh...those days should be here in 3 months or so. The coolest thing I can do down here is walk into the Beer Cave at Wawa. Yes, Florida now has Wawa :slayer:

Just got my 1st pair of Alden's: the J Crew shell cap Barrie boots. These things are amazing. BUT I live here in the NW and it rains like crazy (is right now), and have been very hesitant to wear them out of moderate fear that ill ruin them right out of the gate. Stupid, I know, but I'm used to work boots that are built to take a beating (Whites, Wesco, RWs). Any advice/pointers from fellow Cascadians (PDX/SEA/Vancouver)?

Haha! (In truth, I'm listening, bro. May very well be the way I go on the SDs)

I am dealing with the same issue. I don't live in the NW, but we have relatively nasty winters on the east coast. I have 2 pair of shell boots on leather that I plan to wear to work. I don't know if I should carry overshoes or if I should Topy them just for some wet pavement protection.

i just don't wear my cordovan shoes in the winter unless i have my messenger bag with me to switch shoes after. i had a pair of whites for this before now being replaced with another pair of white's on the way. right now i still have a pair of redwing's but weather is still okay in the northeast as of now smile.gif.

I use alden leather defender. It's under $20, protects and even gives a little shine.
I don't wear shell if its really raining. I wear alpine grain when it's pouring.

Man up and just wear them.

Theoretically, cordovan is supposed to be very rugged and very good in wet weather. However, realistically, with shoes approaching $700, it's hard for many to see wearing them in wet weather. Mac recommends overshoes. I use Leather Defender and have a few models that I don't mind getting wet (color 8 tankers, cigar boots, RL Marlows and likely my black NST shoes will fit this category). Outside of an occasional water spot I find dark cordovan shoes fare well in wet weather and shine back up well with the Mac Method. Commando soled shoes (like the Alden of Carmel models) should fare even better. I'd avoid wearing whiskey and ravello in wet weather

Sage advice there. They are shoes...that's what they are intended for right? I should probably take this advice as well.

Cordovan boots and shoe are my go to rainwear...
post #59355 of 91625
The main issue with cordovan and rain used to be water spots. To be honest I haven't had much of an issue with them at all on recent pairs. Not sure sure what other people have seen.
