    ^ Very nice. The Grant last has grown on me. Those look black to me? No?

    Yes. Grant last is awesome! The 4060 is an all time favorite of mine. Incredibly versatile.

    I saw those on the bay along with the plaza last cap-toes (at least they look like the same ones). I hesitated, you apparently didn't - nice buy!

    ^ good catch. This is my second time owning this very boot. Anyone remember the back seam split fiasco (alden qc discussion) from a few months ago?

    Can anyone suggest where I can get some laces like those in this pic but in a colour that is close to Alden sand suede? Thanks.

    Hehe, I mentioned that my dad had two pair of cordovan shoes - one for dress and one for work. He was a short haul truck driver - in and out in all kinds of weather. Those work shoes lasted 30 + years.

    ^ Make sure you follow the break-in method. If I'm not mistaken, wear the shoes for an hour three different times, and wear them only on a carpet during this time. Mac can chime in if I messed that up at all, but I did this for my last pair of #8 boots and it worked great.
