Great analogy, great answer. Thanks for clearing this up for me. Makes much more sense now. I'll know to size down for my first pair. Thanks again.

Looks as if there is an invisible man in those boots; the way they are positioned on the stairs. satisfied.gif

I believe he meant that they way the boots are staged on the steps it looks like they are on someone's feet standing there.

The second pair of something I'd buy that is a half size off! Oh well.

Hello all.  I've been lurking these forums for months, using your wonderful photos for ideas on starting my own Alden collection.   About six months in and I just ordered my fourth pair; some Color 8 9015s.   I only have three others so far (966 wing tips, 1493 chukkas, and 403 Indys), and absolutely love each pair.   I'm sure I'll post some pictures of the new 9015s when they come in too.    Cheers!

Some great choices, all three are classic and you can wear them easily with a lot of different clothes.  :fonz:

Thank you, Unipair.   I originally discovered the brand (and these fine forums) when researching tan shoes to go with a new suit.   It was supposed to end there, but we all know how that goes once we find fellow enablers.    Next came the Indy's (I'm a HUGE Indiana Jones fan and couldn't resist) and then came the Chukka's out of pure impulse.   I really couldn't be more happy with any of them and all have proven surprisingly versatile, as you mention.  

 

I can't wait for the 9015s.   They'll be my first pair of cordovans and in a color I likely wouldn't have considered before, thanks entirely to the photos posted here.

This ought to moisten your pallet until they arrive.

sinnedk - great pictures of some great boots

sazon - I've had water spots develop on some shoes but not on others. I wore my Brooks Brothers wingtips today in the rain with no issue. There doesn't seem to be a way to tell when spots will develop. They do go away over time though

bassplayrr - Welcome to the forum. You have three classic models, including the underrated 966. I don't own any Alden burnished tan but have always liked the color. I am considering adding that very pair.

What if your sausage is bigger than any bun could handle?
