Another sizing question: I read that most people take the same size in Alden Barrie last as Viberg 2030 last. I wear 11.5 in Alden Barrie and it fits well. I'm talking to a retailer who warned me that Viberg uses UK sizing to 11.5 is actually more like a 12.5 US. So my question is this: when one wears the same size in Alden Barrie and Viberg, is that including the UK sizing? So 11.5US Alden Barrie == 11.5UK Viberg 2030?
Thanks, Skell. Do you feel like the waxed flesh is more tough/durable than cxl?
I must have a Viberg boot, and I'm looking at some upcoming options. I'd like some opinions on black CXL vs waxed flesh. I already have natural and brown CXL Aldens, and I like the material, but it's seems not particularly tough. It scuffs very easily and stretches something fierce. I've never seen or felt Horween's 'waxed flesh' which is flesh-side-out with heavy waxing. Opine, please.
Hello all. Does anyone know where I can get something like this? http://www.denimheads.cz/shop/detail/123/773/Viberg-Boot-1950-Service-Boot#.VCxKTRb2dQc Black service boot (doesn't have to be CXL) with 9+ eyelets and dainite sole with perf cap toe?
Hello. I noticed light colored stitching visible between the upper and welt of my Alden cordovan boots. It looks like the upper might be separating from the welt. Is this the case? Do I need to stop wearing them and get the issue addressed?
I live in Denver (suburbs) and I am aware of none. That J.Gilbert store doesn't carry Aldens. I've called to ask.Denver, well really Colorado in general, just doesn't appreciate this level of footwear. I probably own more than the rest of the state combined.
Google is your friend.http://www.styleforum.net/t/196801/alden-nst-high-boot-in-8-12dhttp://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-for-Context-Tanker-NST-color-8-cordovan-shell-boots-/221467999604?nma=true&si=SV2dNLjfwcxx%252F8DfoDL82is9oqk%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
Post after wearing them, please. I'd like to see what they look like post creasing.
It's probably best to get the style number from inside the boot and then email Alden, as I did with the alpine grain cap toe bluchers which are Hampton. I sent the info to J. Crew who said they'd get this to their web team. I see they have top men on it.
I tried both shoelaceexpress and some on Amazon from TZ Laces Ltd and both were too thick for Alden boots. They're really hard to lace and pull tight.
