Could someone tell me about the black boots, second from the very bottom right? They seem like a plain toe black shell? Very sleek looking boot. Overall, very very impressive collection.

has anyone used Obenauf's LP Boot Preservative on their alden shell boots? does the leather soak it up? im anxious to prep for the weather weather. Also for the leather sole'd boot owners, conditioning leather outsoles with venetian is a great way to keep a lot of the moisture rain/snow from soaking into the leather outsole thus preserving the shape and maintaining the longevity

That combo works so well together.

Lovely picture of a job well done. I spent an hour this morning doing the same while the kids commandeered the living room for Saturday morning cartoons.

Stunning assortment Alcibiades! That's a great set of images.

This was just a quick application of VSC and ~45 seconds of brushing per shoe. I didn't even buff, which is usually the final step in my shoe care regimen.







Great shine on these.

Question, and sorry, don't mean to single you out Patrick.
Why is your right boot twisting like that? Do you use shoe trees?
My snuff chukkas seem to do the same and I keep trees in them.

I guess it is more of a royal. Thanks for the comment!

Pricing is offensive. Too bad.

Thanks for the VSC review and the review! I think of all the boots in this thread, these are my favorite. They have a great patina but look very well maintained. I have these boots on order at JC can't wait until the come in! Great boots and great pics!

I love the patina that emerges between the perforations and the lacing on this particular boot.  The shade of color 8 created by the creasing is stunning.  These are my favorite Alden boots. (I only one one pair) :)  Wear often and in great health my friend...  you too patrick_B!

Thx, I am totally happy with these! And big props to Patrick B for taking such awesome evo pics of his boots. I have so far followed in your suit on these and the osb trench boots (pls stay clear of Vibergs, as I only have one other kidney at this point biggrin.gif )

Whether Reno, VSC, or another conditioner, treating the outsoles from time to time, shoes and boots, has worked well for me.
