    Another Alden boot, also described as a tanker. Custom make up-#8 shell on the modified last. I think I like it better than the Context or Nihonjin versions.

    Those are pretty cool, do you know what last they are on? They look pretty sleek compared to the other tankers, though they are lacking the NST.

    The modified last... which is not something for everyone's feet.

    I cannot see the attraction in a tanker boot over say the indy boot, or the perfect plaza lasted wingtip boot.
