Whiskey PTBs

 

I finally got my Whiskey PTBs in the mail today and was super excited (all day) to get them.

 

I got home and opened them up and started photographing.

 

The green box of joy!

 

My new Whiskey PTBs!!!

 

Again, unfortunately when I took this picture I saw a scratch (HORROR) on the toe area of the left shoe.

 

Here is a close-up of the scratch. It does not look like something that I could just buff out as it looks like it is at the dye level.

 

My poor new scratched PTBs. :-(

 

So, what do you think I should do? The scratch is clearly in the highest visible place of the shoe.

 

Thanks!

Quick question for you guys. I won this pair of LHS CXLs in #8. I used Renovateur on them, but is there anything else I should be using?

I stole these for $36 on eBay. smile.gif

I just saw on Leather Soul's site that the snuff suede LWBs were just restocked. Did anyone here submit a pre-order for those about 22 months ago? I remember they were offering pre-orders for it when I ordered my tan suede LWBs. Hopefully, now that the snuff is here, the tan shouldn't be too far behind!

Nooooooooooo! They look absolutely gorgeous, but unfortunately I think you already know the answer to your dilemma. As you say yourself, it's in the most visible part of the shoe. Truly sorry.

Thanks, yeah. I am a little bummed. I was very much looking forward to these. I am going to ask Kathy what she wants to do with them. I don't want to buff them and return them or reno them and then return them unless she tells me to.

nephew,
I am unable to tell from your pictures- is it a scratch?
in the tanning process for the exotic colors the defects in the shell leather may not be totally covered.
if this is the cause there is nothing you can do to cover the mark
if those were my shoes, I would keep them
post #65366 of 87725
I apologize if this has been covered but I am new to Aldens and certainly this thread. I've found the Alden boxes to be very small. It's almost impossible to store my shoes in them with shoe trees.
So what do you do? Is it detrimental to "stuff" them in there?

I'm inclined to agree with Uncle. They are, with the exception of the scratch, lovely indeed. Might you cover the scratch with a couple layers of paste or polish? Over time, I wonder if the scratch will sting you less as other scratches, scuffs and patina sets in.

 

If you're truly ready to part with them and they're 8.5d or 8e, please don't hesitate to reach out. :embar: sorry, couldn't help myself. I've been itching to make a purchase all week...

As of last week Alden DC still had the Whiskey PTB's in 8E ( my size too)...I decided in favor of the Whiskey LWB's though

I personally don't store in boxes, rather on shelves (with trees)

 

but you are right.. I can't see storing in their boxes with trees being feasible
