I am beating the hell out of the three pairs of boots I own right now. My obsession started with the Alden 405s. And then I bought the Red Wing Gentleman Travelers and Tricker’s Stows. Here is an old picture of my boots (from about 8 months ago).
My Red Wings don’t look as clean now, and my Aldens got a Vibram resole about 4 months ago. I will post a picture of my boots in their current condition sometime later.
