    Read that article and now I want one of their shoes, even though their toe seems a bit too round.

          I reviewed a pair for Dappered awhile back. As an Alden guy, I was seriously impressed with the quality and value. The guy that started GS, his dad retired from Alden.

            The Bespoke Shoes Unlaced blog you linked to in your review is my new favorite website! I spent a couple hours reading the blog there.

            Thanks
            WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

              Do you know if GS has ever done a LWB in #8 shell? I'd like to get into the shell game and like the shape of the Alden last but I'd honestly appreciate something a tad more affordable than Alden.

                Hmm, can't say I've seen one. I know they've done Shell before, so I'd reach out and see if they can.

                  Meermin does shell long wing shoes sometimes. Much less than Alden. If you see a model you like, you can request email noticfication of the next MTO group.

                  Here's one in burgundy:

                    Will do. Thanks!

                    Appreciate the link! Do you have any experience with their Japanese shell? I seem to recall seeing differing opinions on r/GYW regarding how they age/deal with day-to-day life. In the end I do prefer a more casual/bulbous/gun boat last shape for this pair of LWB, I think.

                      An extremely well worn pair of red wing chukkas.

                        I don't have any experience with any shell.

                        Also, I don't have any Meermin shoes. A friend has a couple of pairs he likes and also has the same typical comments about them being hard to break in.

                          Personally I prefer horween shell to shinki, granted my only experience with shinki shell is from meermin.

                          I think grant stone shell is pretty similar to alden in price, I’d just get the aldens for the horween shell unless you don’t like alden’s no. 8

                            I also have two pairs of Meermin myself. Definitely not the most comfortable out of the box.

                            I do like alden's color 8, you are right though I should probably just pony up for those.
