    Thanks Not the true candycane laces but I think the green/red will work. Try and swing by Oakbrook on the way back from #DaBears! No vintage shoes...but a vintage jersey.

    Coincidentally my pair of AE shell Grayson just arrived yesterday. On the right here, with Alden 563 on the left. Both color #8 but very different in color and tone. Sorry about the gloomy lighting, it's about to start raining here, which I never complain about. Total for both: $106. 77353774-5E08-4E1A-83D7-C0F8A978358E.jpeg

    And you brought home a W vs the Pack. And a division title. And at least 1 playoff home game too. On to SF next week!

    Shoe schedule for the week inspired by members.

    Monday - Short wings. @Shoonoob ''s display last week reminds us all why it's an underrated style.

    Tuesday - Passing on the torch. Your son/male family member needs a pair of shoes. He is your size. Which pair do you clean up for him? Why? Courtesy of @CWOyaji

    Wednesday - You have a date. With a fellow thread member. Which shoes are pulled out for an evening of food, drinks, and good company? All activities between consenting adults. Courtesy of @Jiqea and @Paul902

    Thursday - Thrifts and finds. A pair of shoes you found while thrifting, and you cannot believe your luck in terms of condition. Why would anyone have donated these beauties? Inspired by everyone.

    Friday - The beginning of the end. Your time has come. You are being moved to an old age home. You can only bring one pair of shoes. Remember, comfort, versatility, and fashion, will matter. We know @davidVC will be bringing those Aldens. And calf high socks and shorts. Inspired by @mreams99 and @davidVC

    Cribbage tournaments, dates with Cindy Crawford... You need a good pair of stompers.

    I look forward to everyone's contributions as we head into the holidays.
