Alden QC: Would you be happy with receiving this pair of shoes? - Page 2

post #16 of 104
I wouldn't send them back to Leffot. Alden can fix those. I once had a pair of #8 shoes with one lighter than the other. I purchased them that way, at a discount. Alden charged me a small fee to fix them. They turned out perfect. If I had purchased them for full price, I would have demanded that Alden fix them for free, since they are no longer available. Maybe go through Leffot for this resolution, but if you really want them, they can be fixed.

send them back, thats ridiculous, who the hell makes shoes like that, i personally am not thrilled with alden quality to begin with, this just proves it, maybe they need to be come more like AE, bigger with better quality control may be better and cheaper shoes for all of us

I'm almost there with you.

I bought a pair of shell punchcap boots and the stitching started to come apart after 1month. Upon further inspection in sunlight, the sides of the boot looked like they had been painted on by a 3 year old with a crayola paintbrush. Like, swirls and almost looked like writing.

Shipped those back about 3 weeks ago and seems like UPS has lost another fucking package.

those boots deserved to be lost though so fuck it.

PS: send those back moo. Jesus, that's almost criminal. Couldn't pass as seconds.

i would be fucking furious considering how much aldens cost.

i can get matching shoes for $40 surely they can do it at their prices.

no doubt, I have seen plenty of seconds, and nothing comes close to that. even as seconds they are not close to acceptable.

I'm still thinking there is like a 10% chance of this being a photoshop

at the end of the day it is your money/taste and you need to buy what you like not what the peanut gallery says but I would advise taking a good, long look at how and when you would wear those and make sure they work for you as part of your wardrobe.

Wow. That's really bad. I would send them back for a full refund. There are plenty of other companies that make nice looking saddle shoes.

On a separate note, this thread made me glad that I decided to go with AE for my #8 cordovan longwings.

im sure Moo will call around to see what can be done. I would hate to give up on a pair like this. Still really funny though

I was just looking at those on Leffot. That's not cool at any price but for $550+tax/ship, that's disgraceful. It's insulting that Alden QC didn't stop these from being shipped out. WTF did they think? That no one would notice or care? Send those back and I hope you get a refund for your shipping too. These posts are making me gun shy when considering Alden purchases.
