Not to belabor a point, but MilkshakeView attachment 1598058
Have I lost track or is this pair #3 for the day? I'd love to get some milkshake suede and nearly bought that awesome BB pair of u-tips that @mdubs added recently. For now, I will continue to live vicariously since I have a 3 year old in the house and the probability of chocolate milkshake suede is too elevated to chance at the present time.

Yes pair #3, which is not uncommon for me (retired, not much else to do once house is clean). A 3 yr old is more important than any footwear, so enjoy the ride and pay more attention to him/her than to any shoes or boots.

Not sure how technical ivory not being white is, but I expect a dissertation...

Alden offers both milkshake suede and and ivory calf suede. Ivory is most definitely white.

Odd instinct to tell a guy, who knows that he purchased white shoes, that his shoes are not what he thinks. While supporting that with a flurry of links that are obviously a different color.
"White" is apparently a mine field. Whatever happened to eggshell or adobe whites?

And that is what is great about Alden, there are enough colors/makeups/styles to go around. Personally, I like the milkshake/lighter color suede, but totally respect and support YOUR choices in footwear. After all, it's what makes America great, different opinions and respect for all of them :)
Yeah I love those milkshake indys

Was also confused for the "ivory suede" when I saw them first time. Ivory (the color) is also somewhere between tan and white in my mind. However they are definitely the same as the "white buck" leather after a quick comparison.
