    Yes, they are. So comfortable, too. Thanks, guys. I agree. That stain is not worth an extra $250 (full price). Definitely keeping them.

    For cotton argyles, BB is a good place. I can't wear wool socks.

    Received my irregular Unlined Chukka's in Snuff today and I'm really happy with them. Only defect I can see is a small scuff on the inside part of the vamp. Absolutely not at all fussed with this as I'll imagine I'll do a lot worse to them in no time at all.

    Now, I'm thinking that as they were such a steal, I might send them off to B. Nelson for an upgrade to leather tipped crepe soles... Yum.

    I'm wearing crepe shoes today. They're great, for me anyway. A bit chunky for something like an unlined chukka though. I think you'll like the flex welt.

    Hi Folks, I just got this pair with a bunch of Alden caring products yesterday. And I've been trying to search and found out the shoe cream is not recommended for shell cordovan. What about Alden Fine Boot Cream Dark Burgundy? Has anyone ever use this cream with your shoes? Thanks for any advise.
