    Damn, I liked them when viewing on Unionmade's website. Love them now.

    PTBs are a no-regret purchase in any color!

    I tried the NST in a shoe twice (cigar and whiskey) and just couldn't get into them. Only like them in boots.

    Agreed PTBs are wonderful. Wear mine all the time.

    Those are incredible. I bought the indy's they had come out a month ago and honestly I wish I would have known about these as I would have waited. They look great, plus they (I think) have a commando sole, which I love.

    Question:

    Is wax a MUST?

    Maybe i am the only person who doesnt like my shoes super shinny.
    Is just the Alden boot cream enough after cleaning and brushing?

    Any negatives of not using wax besides the shoes being super shinny?

    Wax is not a must by any means. I've erred on the side of Reno and brushing only and have maintained my shoes just fine.

    I'd go for the PTB. I don't have a pair, maybe I will some day. The PTB seems like a classic, basic shoe, that almost anyone could use, especially in #8 or cigar.

    Swung by Unionmade a couple of days ago to see their newer stocks in person. I was immediately taken by the NST Alpine Grain boots. Now I've never been a fan of pebble grain or split-toe shoes, but for some reason the two in tandem just looked great to me. Here are a couple shots I took at home. I'll try to get some "in the wild," photos if I can ever convince my GF that there are people who actually want to see photos of my shoes...
    These look great. I'm regretting not buying a pair of these when they still had my size in stock.
