Whiskey Wingtip Wednesday == Win Win Win
These are fantastic. What is the style number?Never quite sure with what to wear these. They are a mix of styles. Both formal (oxford with closed laces), but casual (double sole, pretty round last, lots of brogueing). I figure they can go with anything from more casual suits down to nicer jeans. Nobody to meet with in office so Momotaro jeans it is. Peach boy and cigar.

Boston checking-in.I am from Boston. While shell is a very durable leather, I personally don’t and wouldn’t use any of my Alden, or nice footwear in general, in the winter elements.
It has less to do with getting the leather wet than it does with the salt treatments that are used. Regardless of the quality of the leather or the shoe care products that you use, even minimal salt exposure can permanently damage your footwear.
When commuting during a storm, I will just wear winter boots and change into my nice shoes at work. On non storm days, I use SWIMS over shoes or the SWIMS mobster boot overshoe depending on how much slush/ice is on the street.
