Well I'm having it shipped to mailbox and had a personal code. Had to do it online, back date till Oct 31 2013 - hopefully its more of the brown version. Thank you for taking the time.

Did you just Mac those new slippers or did you cheat and use a little Alden #8 wax a la patrick_b to get that shine? Lol. Congratulations and wear them in the best of health my friend.

beSpiff: Thank you sir. I am loving these on day 1! I wiped these down with a damp cloth and just buffed them a little bit with a soft cloth. So the shine is pretty much out of the box!

#8 Captoe boots today. Figured I'd wear them today since it's in the 70's and tomorrow will be in the 90's!

Did you have to do some yard work before leaving town? Love the PTB's.

Now, do you think they're too dressy/narrow to be worn casually or is that best limited to wider shoes and maybe a little more broguing?

Wear those great looking boots with everything, just not by themselves when in public.

It looks like someone might have to start a stand alone Alden shell boot thread. Nice boots sir, how do you like them?

Really REALLY like these boots. Wish they still had my size. Apparently they are planning another run, but not in the immediate future.
Wear in good health, sazon!

I like these a lot! I really like the way the grant fits. These, I think, are a nice balance between dressy and casual. The finishing on these and all Alden shell is just amazing.

I guess the Alden boot thread could be seasonal...haha. I'd imagine it would go pretty dormant in the summer except for incomings.

Nice boots, tifosi. I have not tried the Grant last yet, but it looks great in your photos. I'd also like to try the Modified last. I was checking out online photos of the Alden v tip/Algonquin shoe (most of which are pics from Japanese blogs or stores) and it looks kind of interesting - and supposedly very comfortable.

P.S. as I sit here writing this, in a pair of Color 8 Indys, and with 3 of my last 4 Alden purchases being shell boots, the idea of a separate 'Alden shell boots' thread makes perfect sense to me.
