I would expect when it does explicitly say "first quality"....

These are like... third quality

"First quality Alden" is more or less an oxymoron anyway so... really it's a moot point.

Put the darker shoe in front of a window that receives (direct) sunlight, once in a while compare the two shoes. Once they match, you are rolling.

It will take some time...but from my experience with return policy's this would be considerably quicker.

I was once in the same position, buying a light brown pair of AE's off the Bay.  The vendor at least acknowledged a 'slight' variation in shade as a consequence of one of the pair being a display model.  It was a good deal more than slight when I got them - very similar to yours.  I really liked the shoes and decided to keep them and try what I could to get them more closely matched.  Mistake.  Nothing really worked.  Best I could do was diminish the mismatch somewhat, but I could always tell and it always bothered me.


Send them back.
