Breaking the heels off. Zara and Aldo.

Post by Chocolaterain » Sat Aug 15, 2020 2:25 am

Hello everyone,

I've been having some fun with these shoes. I love that you can unscrew the heels and then put them back on again like nothing happened. Well. If the sole doesn't come off :roll: .
Enjoy the pictures!
Let me know what to do with them next.

Not so pretty now. That sole glue was pretty weak.

Great job with them! I love how the Aldo looks a bit worn inside. Good for some rough outdoor walking.
We love to see them boiled and cut up in the end.

For the next, I think most of us will choose the Red LKB! But I want to see them get well worn first.

Thank you vector!!
The Aldos are quite worn but in great shape. The only thing is that they’re terribly uncomfortable, I have to figure out what to do about it, before going on a walk.
No cutting or boiling for them yet, but I’ll go with another pair, maybe even today :wink:
The LKB have been worn and stained (idk how) by the lady that owned them before.

That is a shame, the Aldo looks quite comfortable judging from the soft leather. Perhaps some oil will soften them further (shoe/mink oil to do it properly, baby oil for easy and cheap fix).

The LKB are "better" shoes in material and construction than the rest, they are supposed to take longer to get "well worn". Some sharp gravels and mud will sure speed that up. How do they smell? :D

The issue with the Aldos is not really the leather, on the contrary it smells like good leather. Also the LKB smell very good too, good leather. The issue seems to be the heel is very high and there isn't almost any sole to take the weight.
I've been thinking on wearing them both through some dirt roads, and as soon as i get the chance, the Aldos will visit some mud and a stream.

I'm a bit bussy lately but i've found the time to do a request, but the pictures are still to be processed, so keep them coming ;)
