I'm sending in my 975s today to Alden Restoration. Hopefully I'll have them back before the begining of 2015. I'll post the after photos when I get them. I'll miss these babies, but I'll get to wear my 990s and 986s that I've been too much of a wuss to wear. I know, I know, we buy these to wear them :-)
They have upped the price to $169. I really wish they would charge $150 and not throw in a pair of shoe trees.
