In fairness to shoemart AND to Horween, there's another player in this and based on what I have heard, they seem not so enthralled with making whiskey shell shoes. I have no idea why, but there CLEARLY is more whiskey shell out there then they might have you believe.
The propoganda about the shortage has spread to Alden retailers who pass it along as fact.
