Beautiful chukkas!! Enjoy
Maybe it depends on the quality of the work? I sent back a pair of chukkas last year that had been resoled twice by random places and Alden serviced them.
@PChan247 these are great and very similar to a pair I have coming! Enjoy!Friday in the shade

Does it look like this? I suspect they're just from the shape of your heel. The one size fits all contours of RTW shoe heel-cups will often not be ideal for individuals. We have different heel bone-spurs/configurations and when they are pushed up against the heel cup they make most of their contact at the few protruding points. This combined with the fact that the heel cup is reinforced so that it can't easily mould to your heel means you may get points of heightened...
I finally had an opportunity to wear my rig last weekend to a wedding in NC. While it rained like crazy it survived traveling to and from the event. It needs some work on the shoulders but otherwise for the first wear it worked out well. I also added ribboned laces to my patent leather Aldens. The pic was taken before I had a chance to tuck the collar behind the bow. Also at the wedding I noticed most of the younger people in black tie has some kind of contrasting...
Wish I'd seen these before I ordered my bal boots.  I like the punch detail up the area parallel to the lacing (throat? instep?) and the top edge.  Thanks for sharing!This is the internet, it can be hard to control how people take things.  Absent the knowledge that you don't troll much--if at all, it could be taken either way.(Emoticons help if you're into them.) We can agree the boots are nice!
I believe it's a one time charge of around $400. I think it's very useful if you expect to keep purchasing shoes from the company. At first I made significant adjustments to allieviate discomfort in the width. Then over time additional changes were made based on experiences with older pairs of shoes, recommendations of retail store personnel, and additionally Phillip has continued to make smaller adjustments based on feedback from my well-worn pairs.The fit has gotten...
Yes I had this done both normally and during a resole. I bought my shoes on a G last but decided I needed more space and commissioned a personalized last. I'm not sure what they do but I sent two pairs to be "relasted" on my personal last. I felt almost no relief, maybe a placebo effect. Then later when I had the shoes resoled, I asked them to do so on my personal last in hopes that it would yield more space. It felt marginally better but still nothing compared to my...
I recommend the sailor last as well. @Moosicpa had a more casual pair of shoes made on the last a while back and they came out fine.http://www.styleforum.net/t/257353/st-crispins-appreciation-thread/3750_50#post_7868222
