    A question for anyone nice enough to answer.
    On my whiskey shells, I get black coloring on spots on shoe...heel from driving.... on toe and other areas after vigorous brushing (using the Mac Method, always).
    Is that normal? is there a way to prevent it or is it part of the process of the shell aging and gaining a patina?
    thanks in advance for any advice....

    The many photos of brand new Alden's on this forum are pretty cool. But, a pic of a well worn and well cared for shoe is a thing of beauty.

    So typically I have always thought myself an 8D on the Barrie last. When I was in New York recently I was told to try an 8E. I have an 8E Cigar Chukka here (LOVE this boot) and I am unsure of the fit. The shoe itself fits well across the vamp however I am getting a good amount of heel slip. I am unsure as to if the width is contributing to this or it is more a function of the 2 eyelet chukka? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated

    I have those on my Whiskey PTBs too. But I'm not too worried about them.

    1) Many people report heel slippage gets better after a few wears
    2) The two eleyet chukka will fit different than other boots or shoes (a bit less secure around the ankle)
    3) Cigar chukkas are great - the more you wear them, the more you will like them. They are a great way to show off she'll
