    I wish the weather here in MPLS would cooperate so I could get mine outside. Extended Mac Method break-in period. Some just call it winter.

    they just take your name and number and say they will call you if a pair in your size comes up.

    I know. It just seems wrong to put such nice shoes in some $20.00 Tingleys.

    Yep - no sense in having them if they can't be worn. I am wearing shell today (with overshoes, of course), and it is rather wet and snowy ....

    They will lighten up over time, but color 8 from Alden - when new - can vary significantly from moderately dark to very dark (almost purple/black-ish). This will obviously have a bearing on how much they will lighten up with use and time.

    I just wear my aldens regardless of weather. I have sold off all of my non-cordovan models so I just go for it regardless of what's going on outside. I do have several with commando sole and one with dainite sole which I wear if it's raining, snowing, etc. Overshoes are not for me.

    cigar plain toe boot on this wet day in the mid-atlantic.

    This might be a very basic question but what should I treat my natural chrome excel Indy boots with? And what steps should I take when it comes to general shoe care? Sorry for the simpleton question but it's my first pair or Aldens and I want to keep them in tip top shape.
