WTF. Bro wrote a novella about a chewed up pair of old boots.
Yeah, I think he's hoping for $1 a word, lol. My favorite part is the pic of the screenshot of some Instagram influencer forwarding the seller's own claim of how old the boots are

Snuff LHS

Thinking about a snuff tassel or dark brown LHS next… hard decisions to make.

My 12 year old asked me if I had worn my new shoes today. "No kiddo, I wore these older ones.. I've had them (unbelieving pause) 14 years. (Expletive) they're older than you"..anyways.. today's grab from the closet". ..


Alden Medallion Cap Toe Bluchers in the classic #8.

Lovely. The 2145 was discontinued before I could get a pair (so the 10eee is one of my lingering grails).

Holy smokes. That's quite impressive that you can come up with that information off the top of your head. As much as I enjoy my Aldens, and shoes overall, I never really picked up much on identifying lasts and models on sight (other than the ones I own and the quite obvious barrie of course). Do you know anything more on those shoes that you'd be willing to share?
