    I have Alden suede plain toe bluchers in navy and snuff suede

    Im not crazy about the shoelaces they come with, I prefer the laces the chukkas come with.

    Im not looking for crazy colors, any suggestions where I can purchase a good set?

    Thanks

    All of my Alden boots are shell, so in my personal collection I guess I wouldn't have a comparable.

    I really do like these and the fit is great. I went TTS - 9.5D. Interestingly, these boots from RL said 9.5D (UK8.5), whereas my dark brown shell marlows - also from RL - were labeled 9.5D (UK9E). Each pair fits my feet the same. Because they are calf, I will probably have an easier time beating them up - not that I will try to beat them up, just won't be quite as particular about the conditions I wear them in. Overall I am very happy with the purchase - they retail for $1,100 and I got them for $655. Strangely enough, the RL website was selling the same boot - in brown shell - at the same price point.

    So .. I'm hoping that the recent appearance of the Day Trippers will herald the next lot of Epaulet Ravello Brixtons.




    I think this might be a Northampton thing generally? .. all my EG shoes have this (don't have any EG boots).

    I'm not one for black shoes, but that pair is calling to me. I'll have to get back to Tokyo and try them on!

    Gentlemen,

    short question: You guys seem to know where to find Anatomica in Tokyo. I checked the website, and unfortunately it does not have a map with the location on it. Tried to enter the adress into google maps and then having a look at google streetview, but could not find/see the store there [​IMG]. Could be that I am just too stupid, but on the other hand, I found some other stores I was looking for just fine. I am in Tokyo on a more or less regular basis and would love to stop by at Anatomica, so any hint would be highly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    DBate

    I was there one time, albeit recently. It's in or around Sumida near the water. Kashiwa can perhaps give you more precise directions.

    in my experience, tongue slipping occurs because of the way the shoe is constructed. sometimes the tongue leather is just a little bit canted compared to the main axis of the shoe. this becomes quite pronounced with boots, which obviously have long tongues.

    both the left and right tongues on my barrie boots cant to the right of the shoe's axis.

    It's a bit off the beaten track (for retail at least). It's located on the right (south) bank of the Kanda River right before it empties into the Sumida. More specifically, it's in the block of buildings between the last two bridges over the Kanda. Apparently it wasn't there yet when the Google van came through so you won't find it on street-view. There's a few stations around, but it's an interesting walk over the Sumida from Ryogoku (sumo town) on the Sobu line. PM if you can't find it.
