Neutral cream is probably the way to go, but a cheap alternative is the AE Light Brown Cream. I used it on the veg tan leather and whiskey today without a noticeable change in color (just apply evenly). I used the AE Dark Brown Cordovan Cream for the cigar. $8 each, free shipping.

 

I mix in Reno occasionally, but I've had two shoes now where the shell was so dry it seemed to remove some of the finish in a spot. Learned my lesson...I'll always do a few cream applications first.

Breaking in my first pair of Aldens today. Color #8 Plaza last slip-on chukka from LS. I still have a long way to go as far as Mac-ing them.

Not everyone's cup of tea, I realize, but I'm pleased with them. Next week my second pair (Whiskey NSTs) arrive!

I wear these casually. #8 plaza would go better w suits IMO.

Hate to :deadhorse:...but  damn!! These so stunning. For me, they fall in the top three shoes/boots in the thread...or any thread!

 

And another nicely composed birds eye shot.

didn't the shoemart have that exact boot in stock a few years ago? i recall there was a full size run up for quite a while.... must have been the time everyone was dead set on trying to save money on aldens and not worried about cordovan colors smile.gif.

j gilbert has navy suede chukkas as does unionmade.

 

Edit:  I just saw the follow-up post with the ever-important information that you are looking for an "e" width.  That knocks out unionmade, which only orders in "d" widths.  The J Gilbert model was also a make-up and, typically, to get an "e" width, you have to pre-order the required size.  You should check to see if J gilbert has your size, but they may not have many "e" widths.

That's a brave first pair of Alden ! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

To be honest I'm surprised at how great those look in the wild.
