Looking good Dog in your Jumper Boots!
They did a great job Matt, sounds like we got another good source of repairs to go to! They look fantastic and hope that you wear them in good health.My first recrafting. I purchased these used and were in need of a resole so after some conversations with Bill at Larossa, off they went. They came back a couple days ago and wow do they look incredible. I had the full works : sole, welt, cork as well as refinishing the uppers. I love how they maintained the beautiful cigar shade without over polishing. Not sure how they did it but the patina is left while looking nearly new. Bill has a true passion for what he does and comes highly recommend by me.

Your WT Boots are looking just superb.
Chipper, your George Boots are looking great and have a nice shine on them.
Nice alternate Jumper Boots Dog. Looking good in Chamois now!
My first pair were the simple 901, the perforated tip balmoral on the Hampton last, which technically isn't a balmoral. It was my first serious shoe. After that I moved to English shoes for dress shoes b/c I prefer their lasts with a suit. But, I came back for the Indy, and have since added a few more Aldens, one boot, one oxford, one slip on.I love the enthusiasm of this thread. I’m going to purchase a pair of Alden shoes (not boots) this fall and would appreciate anyone’s input on their favorite and/or first pair of Alden shoes and why. I recognize that’s a loaded question but suspect the gentlemen on this thread would be eager to share their thoughts. TIA.
well said, but we wouldn't be here if we didn't have a "thing" for shoes/boots, would we. Wife thinks its a kind of sickness, but I remind her of her 40+ pair of Birkenstock type sandals by a variety of companies and she is silent. Although, truth be told, I own more footwear than she doesIf you think that's a lot of shoes, wait until you hear what some people on this thread have in their closets.
