    You lucky bastard. I'm stuck, because I live, here in MPLS. NO GOLFING TODAY! Wouldn't cha' just know it, snowstorm. The sailors curse and the squinty eye on all those who can play golf while I suffer here in Odin's backyard. Good justification for purchasing some more Alden shell. Right? Speaking of justification, does anyone believe the Leffot Naval Boot and the J Crew cap toe are dissimilar enough to warrant owning both?

    the insole will compresses a little, but not by much. still, this could potentially alleviate the problem. are your toes going numb? gut feeling is return and get one size wider. and the bowing doesn't look too bad--nothing like what you see on the AE thread.

    Damn, I was hoping there was another store to check out down here.

    Anyway, the next Hunt Club sale on Alden is in July.

    These definitely aren't my style, but what exactly makes them bad for traveling?

    Here are a few pics.

    dddrees: They were due for a re-sole. I wore the heck out of these.

    meant from the perspective of getting through security, where the other poster iirc was looking for a solution to not have boots that you'd have to untie

    Thanks for the pics. It looks like they did a great job. I am highly considering swapping out the sole of my Indys for these

    Cigar LWB today. And just for fun, today's timepiece (which I rarely wear, but am rather fond of).

    I really like Dainite soles. I'll consider something like this when I need my next resole. Thanks for posting the photos. Let us know how they wear for you.

    Forgive my ignorance on this... the boots look great, and another impeccable job by BNelson. What, though, is the purpose/benefits of Dainite? I am completely unversed in this material (beyond knowing what it is).


    Looking good sir. Carry on. :slayer:
