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 F&F, 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!
SOLD!

Final price drops! I'd like to get these gone. The post is updated below, with current pricing on the two pairs remaining, with links to imgur albums.

These prices include shipping within the continental US and are valid if sold individually, but if you would like to purchase both pairs, we can discuss discounts off of these prices. Shoe trees are not included (nor is the Alden tote bag). I can't accept returns, so please know your sizing.
  • Alden LHS, Color 8 Pebble Grain Shell, waterloc sole, size 8D Van, 6755, worn ~20+ times (small cracks on topline binding at heel). $445
  • Alden Atom Blucher, Black Shell Cordovan, Leather sole, size 8.5D Plaza, D6530, worn 12 times. $295

finds a pair, shipped from Tokyo, listed for $718. I'm selling these, worn about 6 times, for $250 shipped in CONUS. Model number is 86911H. Full disclosure, I bought these from TSM to test the modified last and the only defect I could ever find is a slightly darker dye on one small spot of one boot toe (picture #2, right boot, doesn't show when wearing)

I can't believe someone hasn't grabbed the pebble shell pair - a fantastic and super-rare makeup...

Today I offer something truly rare and exotic from the collection: my grail boots.

They are Brass-outfitted cigar boots from Alden that have terrific "cigarvello" tones in strong light. These should fade to Ravello with years of wear, which won't be a problem because they are boots that demand to be worn. These are my only exotic Alden boots, purchased originally from a reseller, and they are my grail boots as they do not ship with brass hardware. I had to send them away to the famous cobbler and community favorite, Aram, to install brass hardware for that extra panache and to perfect the aesthetic. This cost $200 to complete. The brass and cigar is the most wonderful pairing in my collection.

Makeup:
Alden exotic with brass hardware.
Leather:
Cigar Horween Shell Cordovan.
Last:
Grant
Size:
10.5D
Price: Forum price of $1050 shipped CONUS via PayPal or Venmo, final sale. Boots will be shipped priority, insured, and sent with signature confirmation.

Condition/Wears:
Excellent condition as depicted in pictures, worn 3-4~ as part of a very large boot collection, Always stored with boot trees. Boot trees NOT included. Boots haven't been worn this year. This run of cigar is exceptionally supple and comfortable.

I've sold shell Alden boots in this thread, but this will likely be my last sale now.


[Moderator's note: Requesting Paypal Friends payment is against Paypal's rules and ours. If you see anyone doing it, please report the post.]

Bumping and reducing to $365 shipping included within CONUS. Would consider trade for Viberg 1035 size 9 or 9.5 suede boots or shoes or 145's or maybe Truman size 9.5...let me know what you have
This so cruel as I've been emailing LS for last few years asking about potential new run of these to get my size and here you are struggling to move them on :(

I've got a pair of 3x worn antique edge color 8 shell PTBs that were made for AoM. Size 9E Barrie. I've about convinced myself that they're never going to fit and they'd probably be better off with someone who will enjoy them more. Never having sold here before, what's a fair price for a pair like this? If there's interest, I'll try to get some pics up soon.

Edit: Paid $788 plus shipping this April during the great covid shoe/belt promotion.

I thought this was one LS yearly orders. Hopefully they do another run so you can get in. What size are you looking for?
