    That looks like an especially nice shade of #8. Rich.

    A true statement, IMO. It also does the same for cigar, but cigar looks wonderful with antique edging. So, in coordinating things with Nick V., I had him darken the welt, but leave the edging as is. The finished product was a very nice compromise. Now, looking at the shoe from the top down, it definitely has a dressier look, IMO. :nodding:

    Hi Nick! I have some new Whiskey LWB's and Chukka's coming. I tend to wear the toes on the double soled loafers and have had recessed metal toe taps placed in those. Do you think I should do the same with these lace ups? Haven't worn a lace up in quite some time. I wear these lace ups a little larger to allow for toe room whereby the loafers I wear 1/2 size down and the toes are at the front of the toe box, more of a moccasin fit. Maybe this explains the excessive toe wear durning break-in. Your thoughts? I would be happy to send them to you for recessed taps... you charge ? for that service. Thanks so much, you are so kind to answer all these questions on this site! Good man!

    I concur. I have this boot - but on the Grant Last - and it is one of the richest color 8's I own.

    Thanks all... it really is a rich, plum-like shade. Will be interesting to see how it develops over the years. It's silly but I love the flat laces & high number of eyelets on Alden boots.

    Now to find a cordovan-esque belt!

    I got my Ravello PTBs at Alden SF about a month ago, was their last pair I believe. Keep your eye out for these, it's seriously my favorite pair of my 10-12 pairs of Aldens!

    Agreed. This is a serious shoe.

    Also got my cap toe boots back from B. Nelson. Top-notch work.

    Mind revealing cost of flush metal toe taps? Looks great BTW.
