    god i love the color of the ravellos and whiskey but i feel like it would be harder to pull off. black, #8, and cigar are so much easier ... looks great though!

    They are 9D. But strange enough, they are perfect for my 10D feet.

    Petyot,

    You have no idea how green with envy you've made me. What a spectacular find! Now, because of you, I have to make a trip tomorrow to my local Value Village in a futile attempt in finding something like that.

    Sorry [​IMG]


    PS : Keep in mind that I visit Value Village on a regular basis since 3 or 4 years and those Alden ranks among my very best find.

    here are the chukkas in whiskey...

    these are the only "boot" with a plain-toe that I've seen in whiskey. they also have a blucher shoe in whiskey sometimes available. call the San Francisco store to see if they have them in your size.

    Thanks for the photo Jasonfoote! Whiskey sure looks good...
    I may have to take a trip back to SF Alden.

    Picked up my suede chukka's yesterday from Sherman Brothers. It feels so weird to wear something this light after wearing my Indy's for a couple months now.

    Do all Alden boots have speedlacing? I hate it on mine. I salute Epaulet for their Alden collab without normal lacing. Here's my pair, suede brogues (Alden of Carmel commando soles replaced with double soles): [​IMG]
