It would be nice to see them restored if only for sentimentality, even if they are past their useful life.

Vestbash, yr gramp's kicks are so dope. Love the fraying of the double stitch. Too far out

not alden but perhaps one of you may be interested

not mine but incredible deal for a whiskey plain toe boot

^^ Those are pretty nice.

solid construction too. the cost of the shell alone is couple hundred bucks. it also looks lighter than whiskey shell, almost like "natural" shell which looks milky white

Too bad they aren't my size...

+1. I'd be all over those in a second if they fit.

Thankk.  That notion does indeed deserve some serious consideration.

Bakes, I doubt that your photos ever go unnoticed.

So kind of you to say so.

Here is an idea, if they decline the project.  Make them in to a lamp.  Get a piece of wood, stain it.  Nail or screw the shoes to it.  Get a lamp rod and put it between the shoes (or through the heel of just one shoe if you want a smaller lamp) and get lamp hardware from any hardware store. Then get a shade for it.

 

It would preserve the sentimental value, display the character, and be a cool piece of decor for a shoe fanatic.

8670C Grant last.  Any ideas?  Image is missing from the 2nds list.  Thanks.

Excellent boot. Cheers to you both.

I'm intrigued by the idea of an Indy style boot on the Barrie last (nice pick up, ubiquiti). Here's a comparison of my color 8 Indy (Trubalance) and black shell Naval boot (Barrie).





 

I am hopeful that these image confirms why i have to go up a width from truebalance to barrie due to tightness in the toes.

I noticed Bakes.  :inlove:

 

At some point I will acquire either this shoe or the straight tip bal (minus the perf).  Did you consider both of these also?  If so, what did it for you?

Repp,

I am having the same debate right now. I like how these are simple, but have a little flare...
