I've decided to give shell Cordovan's a shot and have narrowed it down to the Alden of Carmel Square Toe Norwegian and the RL Darlton Wingtip. Drastically different styles, but both are appropriate for my work environment. I'd go with the double outsole Alden's and not the Commando Soles. I prefer the Alden's styling, but the RL shoe is over $100 less expensive after discount... I'm leaning towards the Alden's and hoping to snag the RL's on sale later or maybe on ebay. Any input from SF'ers who own either or both shoes?
