    I favor Plaza over Barrie as well.

    Thanks and I totally agree! However, with Aldens newer laces, exposed eyelets are 100% a must. Got to sometimes work within the bounds of what is available. Barrie in 10.5B isn't too bad though. ;-)

    I rewinded just to watch it again. Looks like a "non-branded" version. A different gold crest and what looks like "Foden" or something similar written on it.

    They actually appear to be Church's Foden model shoes, at least the box says Foden. But, the shoes do look very Alden so perhaps they used Alden for the shoes and a different shoe box so as not to be advertising for a particular brand.

    Fair enough, not quite Alden.

    I need some Whiskey LHS's resoled at some point. Frightened that Alden might change the White Vamp stitching as they did with my 8's. Anyone have Whiskey or Ravello Recraft experience w/ Alden LHS's? Would be great if Alden would Recraft without the dying process. I've seen BNelson stuff but some of the stitching looks off to my eye. Could be poor photo's though. [​IMG]

    Looking good in your Black Shell LHSes today. I haven't resoled any shoes with Alden yet.



    Both are looking good. Hope you are enjoying the game.

    Just guessing that he means speedhooks will destroy new laces

    Not that this is ground breaking news .. but it's always nice to have the wife fond of at least one Alden Shell. She absolutely loves my Whiskey LHS's for some reason. Pretty nice considering the Shell collection.
