    I apologize for the noob question, but would these be the correct shoe trees to purchase for my 8.5E shell indys? : size medium

    Gorgeous. Bals are not my thing but these look beautiful and illustrate why Whiskey is so nice. The two-toned patina is very unique and is most evident with Whiskey cordovan.

    Fuck Alden. Everytime I am interested in getting a pair there is something that stops me. It has been this way for years.

    I've read a few comments here about not liking colored laces, but I'm kind of diggin' them and am thinking about picking up a pair or two. Thanks for the link!

    for the tsm #4 wingtip boot, anyone know if they'll let you preorder any sizes outside of the 8.5-11 range?

    So, now I sort of understand why I can't buy any Alden shell boots that I want.

    (1) there is a shortage of shell cordovan leather from Horween
    (2) it takes 1 horse butt to make a pair of shoes

    sort of puts everything in perspective now.
