    I'm assuming this is all mechanized somehow. . . with moving shelves and conveyors . . . or an entire room wing of your house devoted to storing these shoes . . .[​IMG]

    mcarthur: I've never seen a NST chukka boot from Alden. Is your pair some sort of a special makeup?

    Not really - they seem pretty similar - it's only the Aldens that seem to have that 'hard baked' shine.

    I don't know if that is the result of years of brushing on your part or what. I've no experience with a new pair of Aldens.

    Alfred Sargent Hamish from the Shoe Healer arrived today. Walnut calf and Harris tweed on commando.
    Probably won't be wearing them until fall but I knew I'd be sad if I didn't get them.

    This is such a great shine I can almost make out your secret stance in the right toe.
