    Thinking about visiting Union Made and checking out some shell chukkas. Can these be dressed down, way down, with jeans? Anyone have pics?

    Yes - every shell color, in a chukka boot, can be worn with jeans. It is a nice look.

    Basically all Alden shoes can be credibly dressed down with jeans except certain styles really intended for dress (balmoral wingtips or captoes, etc). Of course, many can be dressed up as well. At the end of the day, relative to what most people are wearing, almost any Alden will look "dressier" than normal with casual jeans and t-shirt outfits (most people are wearing converses or whatever with such outfits), but if it is your style, go with it.
