    And the prices are pretty damn good for "exotic shell" given some folks like to put BINs north of 700 these days. You 11.5s need to hit these hard and fast.

    Just a different take here, but I found the size down, add a width method worked in the forefoot. However, the heel fit then became too sloppy for me. YMMV.

    I've never seen that style of printing on the insole of any pair (The Alden Shop, San Francisco, all spelled out) and I didn't believe Alden/Horween stamps "Genuine Shell Cordovan" on the soles. Can anyone comment? Seems just a hair off.

    I could, of course, be wrong and they be a fantastic deal.

    I think your Leffot gunboats are perfect. I don't know who started pairing #8 with an antique edge trim, but I am a big fan. Thanks for posting sazon. You got some nice rolls going on there.

    That is one tough looking Indy boot, I'm liking it a lot. Are you a big trubalance last fan yet? Do you or anyone else here know if the stitching on the Innsbruck boot is done by hand or machine? BTW, congratulations shouldaville. Nice score!
