I know there are thousands like them, but these are mine. A dab of renovateur, about ten minutes of brushing and some midday sun:

This is my next chukka... Which should round out my color 8 boot collection (after preordered wingtip/commando and captoe/commando boots come in)

My unlined PTBs in 12C feel slightly sloppier in the heel than these do, and these are a 12D. And I know unlined shoes usually fit snugger than the lined version in the same size. It's probably because I usually lace my boots really tightly up on my ankle.

And I could tell these were brand new, never tried on. They weren't even laced up yet. I know some people have gotten Aldens from J Crew that have shown some wear.


- This is why I like being on J Crew wait lists. So many times I have gotten Aldens in plain boxes, no shoe bags, scuffed up from the Crew. When you're on the waiting list I like to think that the shoes get unpacked from Alden and packed up right away for the consumer with nothing in between

Commando Plaza Safari. Perfect TTS fit on me. Extremely light and comfortable after wearing a shell chukka all day. Still a 10.5 left.

For years, I thought I developed that wear pattern due to my gait. It wasn't until I learned of the Mac [break-in] method that I understood how it happens. With that said, I rarely bother to break in the double leather soles on carpet to avoid the toe wear. I'm far too impatient. I do follow his shoe care steps.

Damn that's tempting! However, I just bought #8 chukkas this week and have a pair of shell AE MTO's that are close to completion. But snuff suede...

Looks like a full size run of wingtip boots in snuff suede on Plaza at Leffot.

Breaking in the shoes indoors will certainly help decrease this, but gait is still a major factor in my experience.  I have shoes that were thoroughly broken in indoors that still exhibit some of that type of wear.
