To the best of my knowledge, only Alden of Carmel carries AF anything.

I don't have any dress shoes with topys, dainite, minilugs or commando.  I know I should avoid the salty wet slush. However, what about just the salt remnants?  Things are pretty dried out here but some sidewalks still have mini salt rocks.  Should I forego my leather soled shoes?

 

PS I do have a pair with the flex welt oil sole, though.

#8 Shell Cordovan PTB

Which one would you choose and why?  I have never owned any shell cordovan items and am unfamiliar with their care.  I plan on wearing these both in a business casual environment, as well as on the weekend with jeans.  I fear that with the shell, they'd be more suited for the work environment than with jeans?

Thanks for all your help!

Go with the color 8 shell PTB. Then consider about 40 other models before the navy one. biggrin.gif

Color #8 in shell is the best ,and shoes from shell cordovan is something else  than the rests, especially after time !

#8 shell is much more versatile.

That shine!  That luster!  Those argyles!   Hmmm.  Anybody ever notice you never see mdubs and Uncle Mac together in the same place at the same time?  I wonder…

hi, I have both pairs. I would recommend the shell ptbs. classic pair which you can wear with jeans and/or  business casual all work week long. the navy jcrew works well with chinos. I wear khakis a couple of times a week so the navy works for me.

That's hilarious!  But I can see the navy going well with chinos.

Reveille, my recomendation is to purchase the PTB in shell cordovan first as others have said. You won't find a more versatile shoe especially in color 8. I have the color 8 and the black shell.

I was lucky and found the PTB in whiskey at Alden SF. They are on their way to me.
