    I'm thinking more of 9.5 D if my heel is slipping, isn't that right?

    As of today, thinking to order Leiden and Tate in 9.5D. Not good?

    When I was 19, and a sophomore in college, I was hired by a local bar to be a bouncer (University of Illinois has a bar entry age of 19) where I worked for 3 years as an undergrad and 2 years as a grad student.

    There were a number of benefits to working in a bar, but my favorite was the ability to buy pitchers of beer for $2 from any of the 4 campus bars owned by the same company. If I had $10, I could drink like a king. Sure, it was usually just Bud Light or a Miller product, but sometimes one of the bars would have Leinenkugel or Harp on tap (this was pre-microbrewery time). But the worst decisions were always made after we decided to drink Ice House beer. I think their slogan was something along the lines of twice the alcohol content as regular beer. Man, I miss those days of making poor decisions.

    So, I never had to slum it with Thunderbird or MD 20/20, although I did have to clean up after ladies who drank too much Boone's Farm. And, as great as it was working in a bar for all those early years, I'm pretty sure hell looks like a ladies' room after closing time. I've seen things that still haunt me to this day. I always had a beater pair of shoes that I'd wear to work. No way I'd ever set foot in there with new kicks on. Although we did have one bartender who alway wore black-and-white spectators behind the bar. I'm not sure what brand they were (probably something cheap), but they looked cool as hell.

    They do have navy suede in my size but I don't know how I'd ever wear them. Gotta hold back since I have Loden pair that has been on the chopping block and just realized I never listed on the bay. The blue is nice though........

    Also see the grantham all the way down to $127.50. Definitely not my cup of tea but surely there are a few this would interest.

    I didn’t realize today was flag day. Well, I guess if ever there was a day to wear these...:

    Great color pairing today guys!
    They've got navy suede in my size as well! The only reason I hesitate is I already have the Sonoran chukkas and an NST Alden boot on order in blue suede. I've repeatedly made attempts to purchase the blue suede strands in the past but they're never in stock when on sale. Crap. I need another pair like a hole in my head. Thoughts?

    I am pretty sure I have the same blue suede nst on order with you. Plaza with brass hardware through AoM? I'm doing my best to hold out. I know this is one of those price is nice and shoe is nice but will I wear it type thing which I think the answer is "limited wears".... trying to hold off.

    @smfdoc @Joe Schmoe I did not find any SMU in your sizes. Hardly any shoes at all in your sizes.

    Made it to both tent sales this morning. Identical to past years except hardly any SMUs. Best deals were on the third party makeups. I ended up with RL suede sandersons and B.B. Dukes both first quality for $99 each
