    Wow. I had the same indent on my Color 8 Chukka firsts from Alden DC. Great deal!

    Was rolling around in some nice Color 8 today. This angle is not the most flattering for these shoes due to the toe wear and the fact that I didn't have time to brush them last night.

    And started the break in period on my Whiskey LWBs.

    No one seemed to notice my three shoes in one day stunt. But I did wait until the end of the day... :)

    Thanks! They look even better in person! I posted a lot of pics of them from my Nikon a few weeks ago. Better looking than my iPhone camera.

    They are actually Seconds from The Shoe Mart. Got them a few months ago. Just been sitting in my office in a box. Finally starting to break them in. For what is worth, I don't know what their "defect" even is.

    Casual Friday ravello lhs.[/quote

    These were an ebay find over the winter, and I was absolutely thrilled with the value that I snagged these for. Tonight I gave these a full cleaning, giving them a "mac" brushing and cleaned up the edge dressing. While cleaning- I went to work on a dark sharpied in spot on the sole, and I found the following: $10.50. Brutal

    Motion for summary judgment granted; judgment for the counselor with the whiskey.


    Looks like it could also be Ron Ryder's boots.
