Whiskey Chukka Boot
Model：Whiskey Chukka Boot (prod. code: 8C)
Size： 9 1/2 D
Shop：Alden Shop of San Francisco
After 2 years and a half of waiting, I finally received the notice of the delivery from San Francisco. Since probably this was the model I wanted the most for quite a long time now, I should have been excited little more but this announcement was just after I purchased 2 pairs of rare shell models within a couple of weeks...
I think I noticed the existence of this beautiful chukka boot through Barneys New York model released in 2011. Since I love chukka boot the most that time, I really wished to get one but I finally needed to give up after intensively sought on the market. Recalling how I was crazy about Whiskey Chukka boot, this acquisition must be one of my goals that I wish to achieve before I die. 😄
Chukka boot requires flawless large cordovan shell and even a small scratch or spots gonna make it scrap. I can easily imagine how difficult it is to make such a beautiful boot in the factory... This chukka boot is just amazing...
By the way, this Whiskey shell has a lot of spots... Since this one is really transparent, it clearly shows pores on the surface. 😅
I rather prefer pores on such a transparent shell as Nick explained it's a kind of the sign as high quality cordovan, but it looks like freckles on the face. 😄
Well then, I really wonder what is the next goal after this... 🤔
