    Gents-

    Just learned that I passed the bar exam. I am going to buy a pair of attorney's shoes that will last me a lifetime. I'm going to buy one pair of AE and one pair of Alden. I would love if you guys threw a couple recommendations my way for Alden. Have at it, gents.

    Someone above a couple of weeks ago said that a black shoe is what is mostly the 'uniform' for court...

    Color 8 LWB might be fine for the office though.

    And, congrats! (This coming from the son of the Dean of Admissions to a prominent top 5 law school ;) ).

    BTW, Leather Soul has had more than one 'Attorney Shoe' including Black and Color 8 both - http://leathersoulhawaii.com/?s=attorney

    Congrats - I'll be joining you in a few years :)

    Go black for sure, assuming you're making out to be a litigator. If you're going to mainly work in an office setting, color #8 would be appropriate.

    Color #8 captoes, plaza or hampton last, either straight or perforated tip. For your first pair, no medallion on the cap, unless you really want it.

    For examples, see this, this, and this.

    Lexol makes a line of leather care products.

    Cleaner, Conditioner, and one other product, I forget what.

    It is quality stuff. I use it on my calf, Someone once said that they use it on their shell with good results.

    Its some of the best stuff out there for leather in general. Good for luggage, leather upolstery and the like.
