So you grabbed the 12D in the choco tanker...
12.5 I think, I pre ordered it so I could wear thicker socks...Hmmm will have to check when I get hkme
The color on these is stunning! What an amazing shade. Great boots my friend!
I don't reach for this boot enough! A definite grail boot that I'm afraid to scuff up. Your picture shows how nice these look in use. I might have to break these out tomorrow!
I love this! Great boots! On commando with hooks? Perfect makeup - where are they from? The shade on these is killer.
Boot season for me starts on January 1st and usually ends right on December 31st.
I was wondering if the group would mind helping me make up my mind on the next shoes I will buy. I want something versatile (can be worn with biz casual, suit and jeans as well). I'm heavily leaning towards the Alden 990 Color 8. I love the simplicity of the plain toe but am worried it makes my foot look to big. Just wanted to get some thoughts from the group on the 990 and/or anything else you think would be a good choice. This will be my first paid of Shell cordovan shoes.
I don't see how you'd go wrong with the 990 PTB. They are indeed a roomier (especially in width) shoe. They are a great business casual shoe and fit the bill just right. For something more dressy I assume an Aberdeen or Van Last shoe would be in order but that's not to say that you can say dress them with a suit.
Citishoes and Context both offer color 8 NST boots. TSM does as well but they're on a different last, IIRC.
Granted, my suede Dovers are a different cut, color, and vibe, but they're still Barrie plain toes. I'm an E width, and going into the acquisition, I expected my shoes to end up a lot blobbier than they actually are. IMO YMMV etc. you'll be fine, especially relative to the general population. If your frame of reference changes from staring at a lot of sleeker lasts, well...
If not the 990, the 975 is great or the 4060 for a boot option
They are the 12.5 I preordered....tough to take cigar indys off but figure dinner tonight will be good time to break them in.
Thanks. Yeah TSM is on Aberdeen.
Context was out of stock, but Citishoes and Madison appear to have them.
Thanks! Yes, commando with hooks. AF79 from AoC
