    Got home from a week of work travel to a new/used addition to the fam. Adding more non-shell Alden's in the mix. Dark tan (calfskin) WT boot x TSM.

    Come to think of it, this is my first calfskin Alden; all others are shell or suede

    Needless to say, a pair of AE Walnut shell Daltons will be for sale soon

    It is somewhat crazy to think of replacing a Shell Cordovan Boot with a Calfskin Boot, but this picture totally reinforces my preference towards the proportions of the Alden Boot.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, and ideally I'll get lucky and can upgrade the calfskin pair to a Ravello pair ;)

    Agree 100% on the proportions preferences of the Alden WT boot, which is the main reason. Plus I plan to wear these more casually and I think the Alden pairs better with denim

    My shell daltons are still in the box, honestly wont probably wear them. The wingtip/vamp ratio is just off.

    Well done! Those boots look great. Shell is fantastic, but calf is vastly under-appreciated in these parts. There are plenty of occasions where I feel that shell is too shiny, especially since I work in a much more casual office environment. The lower price point and availability are also pros.

    Nice! I'm considering some very similar boot, but eyelet/hooks. Thanks for the useful real-world preview!
