    nice shell Aldens Get Smart. Despite the fact that #8 is not a "rare" shell color, I always think that it does look nice new and aged.

    i know, if I had the option for calf I would go that way. I think cordovan is overrated, but I have no problem buying it if the rest of the shoe is good.

    the brogue boot is AF-79

    size 8E on Leydon last. I normally wear a D but the E actually fits real well esp since I had intended to use an insole for added cushion

    Those Officers Indy's are beautiful.
    No wide sizes though?


    Thanks, and sorry, we just did this one in mediums. If you've never worn the Tru-Balance last, then it is pretty wide compared to most.

    Quite possibly the best looking boots I have ever seen. Would gladly trade my 1000 Mile Wolverines for these Indy's.

    It's been an Alden week

    burgundy calf laceups on Plaza last w/ flex welt sole. These might be the single most comfortable dress shoe I own, like wearing sneakers.

    Man, I've been reading this thread too much. Just ordered the Ravello shell wingtip boots from Shoemart. Can't wait.
