    What colors go best with shell cordovan #8?
    The beauty of # 8 is that it goes equally well with both navy and gray, making it an ideal suit-shoe color. It's very versatile.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Double Waterloc - The double oiled leather sole on this boot is supposed to enhance durability in the wet, however I'm not sure how effective this really is in practise. The oiled sole gives greater traction overall, compared to a regular leather sole, but it is also softer and appears to wear down alot easier too. Does anyone have any experience with Alden's Double Waterloc Sole?
    Pretty much bit you on these.

    Putting the order in tomorrow.

    Sup?

    bad news ... my #8 longwings developed a "rough" spot on my left shoe size of a quarter. the DC alden store is sending them back to the factory for the weird discoloration/defect ... i should have took a pic
    - great service from them, and then alden will just ship back to my house when they can buff/fix the spot

    good news ... my #8 LS 5th anniversary boots and the black SF boot came in today

    thanks tom [​IMG]

    Some of my calf Aldens from before I started to keep track of lasts.
    So damned if I know. I got them from the Shoe Mart a few years ago.

    So I received my black Indy boots today in size 7.5
    I tried them on with a pair of medium weight boot socks.
    My big toe hits right around where the white stitching curves around the toebox. Does that sound about right? There is def some room but I feel that the 7s will be too tight.

    they ship to USA but they charge an abnormal amount because of the conversion rate and their shipping costs plus there may be an import tax on it when it arrives. i asked about some NST cordovan boots from them and it was literally 200 on top of what i would pay at Leather Soul (except leather soul is sold out)

    Eh black cordovan is kinda boring. Cordovan is really high shine and gets the waving, it's not for everyone. Have wanted a calf boot that I can wear with denim or dark trousers when it's wet and also that look kinda sleek.
