    Do you own any Alden?

    Dude RW pales in comparison. After handling them I'm just not impressed.



    Yes, I do. Do you own any Redwing? I have the GT - awesome boots.

    I have Chromexcel Indy and Tan Suede Longwings on order. I just sold a pair of 904s.

    Red Wing Boots are not crappy at all. The Timberlands I had were crappy, and they lasted me 10 years. My Red Wings will probably last me a lifetime, as I only rotate them once a week.

    I can only afford one pair of cordovan shoes right now and I'm trying to decide between the longwing or PTB in #8. Any thoughts? Which is more versatile?

    Depends on what you already have. Longwings are kind of a classic though. I think I am picking up a pair these next couple of weeks.

    I agree, I get a lot more use out of my longwings.

    Just get whichever you like best. They're both nice shoes.

    I personally think longwings are over-rated in terms of versatility, though, esp for young people.

    That's a hard to find shoe, but not my size. Where did they originally come from?

    Not sure where they originally came from. I bought them new from Greekgeek. Very nice but I'm just a boot guy. If I can sell them I'm going for the next run of the Plaza wingtip boot from LS.

    Yes. You can find GreekGeek's original post in the B&S forum too.
