Ha! That's the blob I was referring to earlier. It's what I have on the seconds I just received. It really looks like a blob, though, so I didn't realize it was supposed to be a shoe till you posted this.
So... does anyone know what signifies an Alden seconds? (not that I would ever consider buying Alden or anything apart from AE of course )
Aldens don't seem to be marked. There also seem to be far far fewer Alden "Irregulars," I dont know of any store other than The Shoe Mart that carries them
