Hooked on shoes...your thoughts?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I've been reading SF for about a month; I'm totally addicted to the boards and especially shoes. It started with the POLO sale and the Mackays that I couldn't track down. Hopefully I'll find a pair in brown sooner or later. A few days later I picked these up from GVH. What a great store. I wore them for the first time yesterday and maybe it was just me (probably) but it seemed people were looking at me feet all day. I also just won these Aldens on ebay: I'm a little hung up on the fact that they're used but they seemed like a fair deal and worth a shot. I was wondering if there was a way to tell if they are cordovan and also if anyone knew what model they were. thanks. any advice is appreciated for a shoe newbie.

I don't know what model they are, but they don't look like cordovan to me. Cordovan has a very distinctive style of creasing, almost wavy.

The Alden shoes are "Norwegian Front Blucher Oxford" in black calfskin (model # 961) made on the 'Aberdeen' last.

(Aberdeen runs pretty true to size, watch out, models that use the 'Barrie' last are about 1/2 size big.)

Made in England, why do you ask? Do you happen to know the maker? I thought they might be C&J based on other posts here.

I haven't received the Aldens yet, so if you're asking about the boots, my first impression was that they are little narrow.
