Waiting room, annual dermatology full body skin check. When Dr. came in she noticed my shoes and said "My husband has a pair of AL-DEN boots, he likes them"

Are they legit? Couldn’t find them on Alden model project. Though the model # looks different than what I’m used to.Not my listing and not my size either but stumbled upon these rare LHS and figured someone might appreciate the heads up.
<p>super rare used once like New Alden penny loafer Ravello grain shell cordovan made in the van last size 8,5 b/d</p><p>Retail 1600 euro </p>www.ebay.com
Same, checked and couldn't find them. I do believe they are legit but one of the authoritative members of the group can probably better vouch for their authenticity than I can.Are they legit? Couldn’t find them on Alden model project. Though the model # looks different than what I’m used to.
Interesting thx. They do look similar to this pair though more weathered.There is no model number because they're a single MTO pair (denoted as "CU" where the model number would be).
I have a similar pair and it is a really nice model. I do wish they had the Tan Antique Edges vice the darker Mahogany Edges, but I will take what I can get!!! Cheers!Interesting thx. They do look similar to this pair though more weathered.
She pronounced them Al-Den? Wonder if that's cause her husband pronounces it that way. I've always heard All-Den.
i think what youre describing has happened to me on the quarters of my shellsea boots. it was rough bumpy and dry feeling in the valley of the rolls. conditioning alone didn’t fix it. a deer bone + conditioning did the trick.You're spot on about my issue, grainy/rough texture that's easily discernible to the touch and it has a whitish look in-between the rolls. I'm hoping it just needs to be conditioned and it'll go away.
it's rough but not bumpy and definitely dry. I figured worst case scenario I might need a bone, if the vsc doesn't remedy the issue, then I'll try the spoon method. I've been thinking of purchasing Brift H Ebony stick.....it's look pretty cool...main reason I want it loli think what youre describing has happened to me on the quarters of my shellsea boots. it was rough bumpy and dry feeling in the valley of the rolls. conditioning alone didn’t fix it. a deer bone + conditioning did the trick.
for boning, it took me a bit to learn how to angle the bone in the grooves so that it nourished the leather without scratching it. i got the leffot bone.
i wear my shit p hard and probably dont do enough maintenance tbh so maybe just conditioning will do the trick for you.
hopefully that helps.
