NAMOR: I've really enjoyed all the pics of the black shell and these nst lace ups especially stand out in part because they look almost gunmetal gray, even green. Is that the light creating that effect or have you actually noticed a change in the color? I'm debating on whether or not to leave some shell shoes out in the sun..

I have numerous black shell models, shoes and boots. None of mine have ever shifted towards gray or green (personally, I wouldn't want them to). However, I have never left any out in the sun.

Don L: #8 NST Aberdeen today

Nice. In spite of all special make-ups and in spite of all exotic colors, this is still one of Alden's very best models. If I had to get rid of all my Aldens (not going to happen), this would be one of the very last models to go.

A green day today.

Good luck with those, Beatlegeuse. I have been considering a pair myself. Alden DC tells me they (and other Alden stores) stock C widths.

Thanks, and these are actually a C width, which is the only reason I got them. D width would have been too wide for me. I had been debating getting these from Alden SF because I saw C widths in stock, so when they showed up on the 2nds list it was a no brainer for me.

Looking good tifosi. I'm wearing the unlined Brown CXL PTB I picked up from TSM 2nds list - maiden voyage today. These things are insanely comfortable right out of the box. I'm getting a tiny bit of heel slip, it's barely noticeable and I'm sure it will go away with a few wears. And I can't spot what the defect is that makes these 2nds. I've seen first quality Aldens that look worse than these.






I almost pulled the trigger on a pair of those from the seconds list, but wasn't sure on sizing as I am not familiar with the leydon last. TTS?

Maybe by the time I figure out my size in the different lasts, I'll have money to buy some shoes smile.gif

These are actually Barrie last, they were listed incorrectly by TSM on their 2nds list.

hi there,

Great pics all around the past 2 days gentlemen!

#4 WT Boot for me today.

I seem to always wear the same socks with these boots. These boots consistently get complimented when I wear them, as well as few snide comments from the black square toe slip-on crowd.

Great boots love the color. Might I ask where you got them?

Thank you. I was lucky enough to get them at the Shoe Mart, spring of 2012. Extremely limited run.

10.5D? Mine are ravello, but I think I'd buy a #4 too if I found a pair.
