A while ago I nabbed these shell BB PTBs from a thrift shop. I posted them here. The soles were at the end so I sent them to B Nelson. I opted to get the crepe soles on them. I just got them back and they look great. I commented that these look almost cigar like but Alden/BB never made them in Cigar. Just burgundy and black. I'll take a pix of them in the sunlight when I wear them to see if you can still see any burgundy.

They don't have that leather cover on the tip that some of the Alden crepes come with. Also, many of you commented that crepe is as heavy as a double leather sole, but these feel pretty light (lighter than a new dble sole?). Sorry I didn't weigh them beforehand. I asked for a darker crepe and Nick complied. I didn't want that orangy or yellow crepe.

Took 5 weeks to get them back. Total damage was $150 (shipped both ways). Thanks, Nick.

nice. im always intrigued by refurbs. b. nelson did a great job here. Id prefer to send a couple pairs back to alden for refurb but I dont want them to touch the uppers, which they probably will. B.nelson is slightly cheaper however they dont replace the insole

Alden doesn't replace the insole either. BNelson does nice work.

(...just like Columbus) Yah, instead of slaughtering Native peoples, you're participating in the slaughter of horses.  I'm okay with the later. :decisions:

 

BTW, those are spectacular-looking LHS.

AoC, I prefer commando to crepe.

This is probably the black boot I would choose! :nodding:

You wear them well Uncle, enjoy often and in great health!

Ha! I *wish* that I could get those RTP!!! Would get them in a heart beat. But they are not an option...

Mac's shoes are like glass. Alden hasn't done shell that smooth for a while.

PSA: For those looking for a great pair of overshoes (galoshes) to protect our precious, rare and exotic shells from wet, sloppy, wintery weather, J Crew has Swims galoshes on sale for $59.50 (they retail for $95).  It's a great value.

I think what you mean is:

Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken;
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He star'd at the Pacific — and all his men
Look'd at each other with a wild surmise —
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

Any other CT town would probably work as well:D

Mike, didn't somebody just do a run of those? I thought, anyway.
For black boots I like the Naval from Leffot and the 4065 straight tip. I had the 4065, but it didn't get much use to I sold it off.
