    Pricing is offensive. Too bad.

    Thanks for the VSC review and the review! I think of all the boots in this thread, these are my favorite. They have a great patina but look very well maintained. I have these boots on order at JC can't wait until the come in! Great boots and great pics!

    I love the patina that emerges between the perforations and the lacing on this particular boot. The shade of color 8 created by the creasing is stunning. These are my favorite Alden boots. (I only one one pair) [​IMG] Wear often and in great health my friend... you too patrick_B!

    Whether Reno, VSC, or another conditioner, treating the outsoles from time to time, shoes and boots, has worked well for me.

    I agree!

    Patrick: Great job with the VSC. I have been waiting till I ordered a pair of shoes from somewhere that carried it to get some. I mainly want it for my CXL, but maybe I'll give it a shot on shell.

    You know I've never really noticed it until your post. I use trees so I'm not sure why it happens. Perhaps a combination of my gait and that particular boot's manufacture.

    mmmmmmm captoe plaza!
    I was just in contact with Yenni on Friday about the shell Indy order. Not the good news you heard. I guess another month or so won't hurt.
