Save the Alden boot for when the season requires them or when they're on sale.
I am thinking of selling "not throwing out lol. $300+ a pair" all my Common Projects, and just buying both these shoes. I don't wear low dress shoes, they just don't match my style of usual wear. I wear Flat Head jeans, and Outlier pants for bottoms, and plain W+H t-shirts or plain designer dress shirts every day.
What is your opinion on the Hard Graft boots? Picture them with 5mm flat black waxed laces.
