I figured that was what he put his foot in.

Meanwhile, these arrived in March after several months of waiting, still breaking them in.

Alden #8 Shell Cordovan plain toe high boots. Still hand sewn in the US of A.

Problem is it's way too hot to wear them these days.

Thanks. I agree. Classic design with nice contrasting shades of brown.

I haven't really walked very far in them. They have very little cushioning for walking. The sole design and the fact that they are made as narrow as possible makes them ideal for operating the pedals in the tight confines of an open wheel race car.

Sorry about that. I made the post from my phone and the images looked normal. After viewing them on my PC, they were indeed ginormous! Now fixed.

I am addicted to Superga sneakers. So far I have two pairs but I intend to have a rainbow of colors eventually.

(Hopefully the pic isn't too big. I opted for the smaller size.)

I thought that they are made thin sole so that you can feel the pedals for better modulation and control.

I saw these on Zappo's about a week ago. Maybe even the same day you were looking at them. LOL.

I'm looking for a Crepe soles shoes. I want something with a very soft cushion. They have them on those Desert Boots style shoes. But I'm not sure I like how they look.
