    That's one hell of a run for a newbie! You have a collection that most Alden faithfuls would envy.

    Don't keep them if you are not sold on them.

    The 2 boots in question are actually quite different. IMO, the TSM boot on the grant with captoe (straight tip) and leather sole, is perhaps the dressiest boot Alden makes.

    This is a phenomenal post. As an English Teacher, I can say I wish all my students were "weird" like you.

    It's called being a sentient man.

    Bateman prefers Allen Edmonds. Silly serial killers.

    I am either a 10.5 or an 11 in the Indy. I ordered both to see which is the better fit. On both when I stride my heel rubs up the boot on both. Can someone tell me how this shoe should feel? The 11 seems to have less of this effect but is slightly loose and when I lace it up there is probably only a 1 inch gap between the lace but not sure that is what to go by

    Thanks

    Question - I'm totally new to chromexcel, and looking into getting my first pair. Any suggestions on the best makeups? I'm open to boots and shoes. Seems there are a few shades as well? Would love some opinions....thanks!
