***The official Alden thread *** - Page 4928
Coincidentally, I have the same Alden Balmoral. I actually much prefer Balmorals over Bluchers, but find that with Aldens I somehow always end up buying Bluchers. I do apparently have 3 pairs of Alden Balmorals. Semi-Brogue Cap Toe on Plaza in Black Shell, Straight Tip in Cigar, and Perf Tip in Color 8.
I am glad these semi-brogues continue to receive so much love and play here. Mike, you wear them well. Keep up the good work.
I laugh a little because these "grail" shoes were hiding in my closet untouched for years.
it was totally impulse. I hadnt been in any non work related internet stuff for a couple days, and finally got a night to 'catch up' and saw that PSA. props to @Shouldaville
I definitely need a black single monk shoe like the least ever in the world, but I'll wear it just to get at least one use out of it. not a big black shoe fan (still haven't worn my jcrew cadets from the original discount they offered lol)
my buddy from out of town asked for a quick family pic today and laughed at how someone could need/acquire so much lol.. some will just never know hehehhe
(most of have seen)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Lol... I didn't even notice the TV. Do you really store them like that?? Awesome...
thank you gents, and as I've mentioned a couple times recently in this thread.. if folks are 11.5barrie/12TTS... I might be purging.. not at this point now, but life changes have put my mind in a place where I grab some 405 indys 6 days out of the week, the rest can gather dust for all I care. I have some immediate family health issues that I might be able to prepay off ravello alone for awhile, and am now weighing the options.
dont feel inappropriate to message me directly if you are 11.5 barrie/TRU/12TTS and I'll set your info aside. cannot guarantee I'll put anything for sell, but if I do, my SF family gets first dibs before ebay vultures. No disrespect intended if I do not respond immed, my mind is just in another place right now.
I'll be MIA from the thread for the bit while I work through some stuff, but will gather PMs and respond accordingly if I deem necessary.
take care you guys. everyone be safe please :) shoes mean little in the gran scheme of things, trust me.
I think it's fair to say you have the unwavering support of all of us at this forum towards the betterment of your family's health issues. Material goods are indeed meaningless.
Sorry to hear about your family, but glad to hear that you are prioritizing properly. Best of luck and hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks! I do enjoy them very much. Definitely my favorite of my 3 black shell shoes.
Amin, you have done yourself well with your collection to date. All are looking well.
