I don't have any boot trees; I just use regular shoe trees in my boots (and I much prefer Rochester trees over Woodlore, too, BTW).
Another vote for Rochester trees. They fill out the heel of the shoe much better than the Woodlores.

Just wanted to share Bartlett's I recently purchased. Leather is soft but not sure if it's just thinner lining. Still not up to par with quality of C&J. Not worth the premium price of $500+, but can't complain since I purchased them for $220. Always wanted to purchase strand's so this is something close, a bit on the orange side.

A couple of walnut McAllister's for comparison..

I think the best thing about modern Horween is how they're doing a bunch of awesome new finishes on their shell.

Gone are the days of black and Color 8, give me more marbled shell, reverse shell, tumbled shell and vibrant colors like green, violet and orange!
It's probably a good thing (for me) that they don't offer those colors. Would be impossible to pass on both of those. They would look fantastic on the Park or Strand.

Not even I know the answer to that one yet. We want to get our stores open 100% and then it's plotting time. Haha.
Walnut, Natty and Shaved Shells would be great. Strand in each would be on the menu. Maybe even a MacNeil.

Nice lineup. Question on the tan boot laces. Where did you get those? I've been on a hunt for months. Seems so obvious but none of the typical lace places have them.

When I see shaved Shell, I only see boots. And then I would pray for a 1A, Fifth Street, or a Hamilton. Any of those would be killer for me.

So those must be whiskey? I have their whiskey laces but yours don't look to be those. Maybe just lighting. I just checked their site recently and they don't carry anything in Tan/Beige.
I looked on my order. Just said "brown."

Nice day for a bootie boot. 5th Street.

Happy Monday forum friends,

All the banter here about the Independence collection did not escape my attention, nor did the concerns about the later shoes quality compared to earlier shoes dissuade me when pairs in my size fell below $200 on sale. I picked up both Bartletts (in brown) and Jeffersons (in walnut).

I've never seen a shoe from this line in person, and I am very happy. I've never owned a Strand (can I admit that), and while technically I still don't I'm pretty sure I could talk my way past the bouncer now.
