    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]

    ill try and throw some pics up

    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.
