As always, compared with what? Their leather selection, construction and finishing are all well behind, say, White's. Saying 1000 mile boots are behind Alden is pretty ridiculous. I even kept a pair of redwing Beckmans for kicks but would never let a pair of 1000 miles back in the house.
Great comparison. When comparing to something of approximately the same price, I would also say the Redwing Beckman is a much better boot. When thinking back on shoe and or boot purchases I have made if I had it to do all over again the 1000 mile boot isn't one I would do again no matter what the price was.
