We are an asian alden retailer so our initial costs for Alden are higher but we do take out %10 VAT and with the currency exchange right now it doesn't hurt so much. We stock E widths a lot because asian feet tend to be shorter but wider than caucasian feet. We are very happy to hear you guys like our models. We try and stock both classics and get creative with others. I think the green came out great and will probably get it for myself.
