What do you all think about the chukka on the barrie last with double water lock sole in natty cxl? Would this be a versatile all around boot?

It is causal, so limited versatility in that sense, but plenty versatile within the casual realm.  The color is easy to work with.

 

If you like the chukka style and are looking for something casual that will develop a lot of character quickly, this is a winner.

Hides are also imported from other countries to domestic tanneries.

 

Don't worry, it doesn't mean that Horween is shutting down.

 

I thought the hides were mostly imported as well.  Not trying to start the whole "shell scarcity" conversation again -- just want the shell to keep flowing!  I still have a collection to build...

Since there is no market int he US for the meat (USDA banned slaughterhouses), most horse hides are from Canada or Mexico...

I myself am planning a two week trip soon and was thinking what shoes I would take. I would probably take three - a loafer, boot and a shoe. Probably Leffot tankers, some kind of LHS and my suede longwings. Something like a CXL tanker or even an Indy boo would also be a good travel shoe.

Gotta love Alden today. I bring back my 975s for exchange and the retailer has no more. He calls Alden to see if they have any in stock and they say "Our computers are down...call back later"

It's Alden...not surprised, LOL. They probably have the same computers "since 1884" as well... rotflmao.gif

Sorry, sazon. Hopefully it will get straightened out soon.

No burgundy shell at Alden sf, they do have them in black shell. Check shoe mart if you want the color 8 shell wingtip.

^^ Thanks. Just bought my last pair of boots for at least a couple months. I do want a shell wingtip and will probably be my next boot. I passed on the wingtip on Commando from NYC a bit ago and ShoeMart doesn't have my size at the moment. I actually still haven't decided if I want commando or leather soles.

Not an expert, but that looks like the WELT is coming off.

That pair is done. You need a replacement.

I just got off the phone with Alden...apparently due to popular demand...they're selling an adhesive NST stitch you can stick on all your plain toe shoes. It's going to be available in calf and shell. This will be HUGE for tifosi. Now he can make any shoe an NST!
