Love that leather texture and color, would look great on a boot with brass hardware
Waterlock is an overlooked sole, wears like iron, but feels like leather to me. Only thing I don't like is in winter, on ice.Yes they are a different sole. Flex can be easily flexed side to side with hands.. not so with this single waterlock.. like I stated.. really solid shoe built for crummy weather.
Dude, we have very similar taste in boots. Great photos BTW.
Squeak update: no that's not cocaine and yes it brushes right off. Squeak still audible but not near as loud. At this level I'm very comfortable wearing them to work. Since it's self proclaimed snuff week for me these have a few more days to be closer to squeak free. Bonus, they smell like new born baby cordovan

turned out to be a nice day in lower Manhattan
it took me a while to find a calfskin captoe boot in a Barrie last and finally found one. I’m usually a 8d or 8e in the Barrie last, but those were for shell Cordovan shoes and this was my first calfskin shoe from Alden. For some reason my gut feeling told me to get a 8.5d. I’m so glad I did that. I just don’t see how I would fit an 8. If I actually wanted to, I probably could’ve fit a 9d. Is this normal to adjust your size between different leathers?
Grain for a rainy day.
These made me wear them today...
My chosen form to celebrate Flag Day is to go with red, white and blue. A great day to wear the 990s. The colors on the first picture are a little strange from the mercury vaper lights at the gas station. Make it a great weekend and don't forget that Sunday is Father's day.

New pair to me that I recently received from one of our favorite members. Super happy with them
I know this is outside of protocol, but SF won't let me add another line to my signature. Also for sale, Country Calf Wingtip Boots, Barrie, single leather sole, 360 welt, 9 B/D. Model # D6807H. PM if interested, and again apologies for hijacking thread.
Friend and his son coming over this afternoon to go fishing, it doesn't look like it will stop raining. Was going to wear a pair of AE Caen boots, but switched to these, which I KNOW are pretty impervious to water. Last time worn was during winter, as they are the boots of choice to shovel snow.View attachment 1192602
Fishing in the rain was fun, friends son had his first fishing "trip" and caught 4 nice bluegill's and 1 small mouth bass (threw the bass back as it was small). Changed into Brogue "Dusky" boot for the evening. Something about black suede that is nice for an evening boot.View attachment 1192754View attachment 1192755
Phenomenal showing this week guys! Great new samples this week with the Shell Chukka Slippers and the Cigar PCT Boots. Great work all around guys and I loved the shallow Depth of Field pic!
In addition to chip's comment. Flex welt is oiled, but it's oiled for flexibility. It is definitely noticeable from the standard leather and waterloc. Originally they also used a softer upper for even more shoe flex, such as lady calf, that is harder to polish. I think now you'll see it with other uppers as well with the shop specific make ups. My only experience with the build (and the Copley last) is this shoe I recently sold to reduce my numbers.Nice grains! I thought flex meant single waterlock. Not the same?
