Mike and I both are in trades that can get messy at times and sometimes we want to sport nice shoes while working. While discussing Alden's, @mikefite had an idea for a leather cover for boots to protect them from ink, dye, dust residue, etc.

After a couple of mock ups, here is the first concept. A veggie tan leather boot cover. This one was shaped to the Barrie last for a custom fit and also added two snaps for easy on/off action. I also left the leather clean so it can be tattooed on.

Simple, classy and traditional was the goal here, and I think we got it. #leathershoecovers

There will be 10 made for 10 exclusive tattoo artist to be worn and tested.

What's your thoughts?

randythecobbler Leather Soul Custom Alden Wingtip Boots in black lady calf with antique'd leather soles and antique brass eyelets.

Thank you @blacksailstattoo for allowing us to visit and shoot at your place. The Alden's seem right at home there.

Alden week has come to a close but I do have more of them that I will be slowing working on. I will also be taking in more orders for the next #aldenweek.

randythecobbler Speed hooks or all eyelets, which do you prefer?

Joe didn't have to choose since he went with both options for his Alden Semi-Brogued CapToes. The upper left is in a dark brown Alpine grain calf leather and the bottom right are the classic burgundy horween leather, color 8s. Both have new brass hardware and antiqued burnished edges.

Alden week continues... #aldenweek

  •   randythecobbler @bothrops1 options is what I'm all about ha I've seen a couple of boot guys lace them up here at shop and it takes real practice to get them up fast, tight and right. 2w
  •   aerosurferlv @randythecobbler I'm more of a hook man myself. I think they're easier to lace more comfortably... With my all-eyelet boots, I find myself having to retie them a time or two during the day 2w
  •   madesupplyco Dayum! That classic burgundy! 🏼 1w
  •   phalanxinc81 @mdubsonsf can you identify the burgundy shoe for me as I am trying to purchase them. Seems like different stores refer to them as different names. I've gotten parajumpers, jcrew captoe, etc. I like the captoes with the brogue design and in this color. 1w
  •   mdubsonsf Do you want it with antique edges or black edges. Most refer to this as either a Perf Tip Cap Toe Blucher, Naval Boot or Parajumper in Color 8... 1w
  •   phalanxinc81 @mdubsonsf I like the antique edges (the wood look) I like the gold eyelets and hooks aa well. Such a timeless shoe. This will be my first Alden and I doubt my last. They sure are pricy. Right now I'm trying to find the best deal. 1w

Photography and footwear, both favorites of mine. : @keniel_muzik

Here we have a fully restored pair of Burnished Tan Alden Seven Hilly Indy Boots, exclusively from @needsupply for @mikefite.

There is more to come with these since restoring them was just half the project. #aldenweek
