Today I offer a personal favorite from the collection, and they are boots that demand to be worn. Originally from AoC, these WTBs on the barrie last are long discontinued. I have worn them sparingly and I had the famous cobbler-house, Jim's in Manhattan, install brass hardware for that extra panache and to perfect the aesthetic. This was an additional $200 or so out of my pocket. My sunk cost is your gain.

Makeup: Discontinued WTB from AOC
Leather: Black Horween Shell Cordovan
Last: Barrie
Size: 10D
Condition/Wears: Excellent condition as depicted in pictures below, worn ~3-4, always stored with boot trees. Haven't been worn this year.
Price: $570 shipped with insurance, tracking, and signature via Venmo/Paypal , final sale. Add $30 for the box (to account for the higher shipping cost due to the weird Alden box dimensions and USPS box sizes). Boot trees not included.

I'm open to offers if you're keen to get these into your stable!

I sold some other Alden shell in this thread a couple of weeks ago so I have positive history here.

Album:

I also have some unworn green shell shoes from Carmina if that's your thing, just DM me!

For Sale or Trade:

Offering my J.Crew x Alden PCTs in color 8, one of the great makeups, in a size 8D (Barrie, of course.) Much to my chagrin since these run a little small compared to other Barrie boots, these don't fit me. Worn 5 times and walked about 3 miles total in. The bonus is these BOTH have a partial Horween stamp on the inside tongues, as you can see in the pics. No box or bags on these ones, boots only, without trees.

Looking for $525.00 shipped in CONUS. International shipping would be at cost.

If you want to trade, I would be interested in a few things:
-Alden color 8 shell boots in an 8D Barrie on leather soles or the indy/neocork sole (no commando or crepe), especially plain toe or cap toe boots.
-Alden LWBs in color 8 on antique-edged leather soles, size 8D Barrie
-Crockett and Jones Coniston tan scotch grain boot in 7.0 UK
-Carmina shell LWBs on detroit last, size 7.5 (8.5 US)

Feel free to make me a trade offer. Theres a lot of other boots I would consider but don't want to list here. Thanks!

I have very odd feet, in that I am an 8.5 OR 9 in damn near anything Alden. Can wear either so that is why I sometimes have both sizes, even the Podiatrist I go to has said "You have odd feet"
