Since selling the Dalton I did find some Alden laces and threw them on my Eagle County boots and love them, I highly suggest them for the guys who bought MTO of the Eagle County.



Love these laces. Where did you get them?

What are people's experience on shipping costs when buying from the shoe bank? I've been charged a few times and not charged in others. Not sure why the inconsistency.

I don't think I've ever been charged for shipping. They have awesome service despite the fact that some of the seconds I received should be deemed thirds or fourths. I always ask about shipping though before I place an order, so maybe that's why they never charge me?

Shipping from the shoe bank has always been free from my experience, but returns are $10 per box.

I emailed Alden SF and inquired about purchasing a few pairs, mentioning that a pair I had broke. The SA ended up sending me 4 pairs for free.

The are the brown flat waxed.

Finally got around to unboxing some black Jeffersons that I got from Amazon. Through a combination of sales and codes, I ended up paying $175 for first quality Indy line shoes.

So my review: they fit great, look and feel superb. The Indy leather upper really is astonishingly better than their regular "custom calf" offerings. If you're doing a calfskin MTO any time soon, it is definitely well worth the extra upgrade to use the independence leather. The finishing is so much better, and it just feels a lot sifter and more comfortable.

I know people have mixed experience with Shoe purchases on Amazon (and the black hanovers I also bought to compare are definitely beat up quite a bit) but I must say that these are flawless. Can't believe I got such a great deal....

I saw that deal and was gonna pull the trigger just for the heck of being able to get such an awesome deal. I refrained though because they would probably only be worn once a year, and I have other gaps in my shoe collection that I need to fill. Absolutely great deal though if you wear suits/business apparel regularly. Enjoy your new shoes!

Snuff suede Neumoks, a great looking shoe. Look at that edge color, amazing!

Loving the boots I see in this forum group… thought I'd share a short video of my new purchase. The Long Branch Boot in Dark Brown. More updates to come. 

Watch in Higher Definition for better image quality...

I used the whole weekend to darken my chukkamoks and I really like how it turned out. Wore it with burgundy chinos to mass today.

Wow, videos take sharing to a whole new level. I would love to see more videos in other makeups, especially MTOS.

~~Nice boots! Any problems with the soles separating?  Read in the reviews that is happening quite a bit.
