NEW UNWORN Alden Natural Chromexcel Indy Boots w/Commando Soles Made Exclusively for Epaulet NYC - Size 11D
Will Ship To: ConUS
RARE Alden Indy boot (11D) made exclusively for Epaulet in Brooklyn, NYC. Looking for $400 plus shipping. Retails for $520+. Would also consider trading for a size 10D too.
The boot is made from magnificent Horween Natural Chromexcel leather built on Commando soles, it will be durable and sure-footed in any number of situations...These are BRAND NEW AND HAVE NEVER BEEN WORN OUTSIDE. Beginning with Alden's beloved Indy shape and comfortable Tru-Balance last, we added the heavy-duty Commando sole.
The tread of the Commando sole is recessed, so as not to detract from the low profile of the boots while providing stability in ill-weather. This special edition is done in beautiful natural chromexcel, a color that sits between a pale tan and a light grey. The oil under the surface gives the leather a handsome "burnished" look, and the color casts change as the leather is worn. These Indy's come with a long lifespan and promise to look great with jeans, wool trousers, and absolutely perfect with chinos. Horween Natural CXL is a wonderful leather. The color is totally versatile and goes great with denim or khaki for a perfect casual look. With wear and care it develops a patina that looks lived in and rich and much better with age. HAND STITCHED moc-toe.
Horween Chromexcel is the original pull-up leather; using time honored techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago. Chromexcel is still produced in the United States using a bark retannage from a proprietary recipe, and then genuine hot stuffed with our secret blend of natural oils and greases. Chromexcel is characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand rubbed finishes. Made to this day with old world craftsmanship, modern Chromexcel carries on a long history of superior comfort and durability.
SIZING-The "Tru-Balance" last runs approximately one-half size big. Order one half size smaller than your typical dress shoe size (e.g. order a 9.5D if you typically wear a 10D).
RECRAFTING-Alden shoes are Goodyear welted and handmade by union craftsmen. As such, they can be easily resoled and recrafted by the factory. When you've worn out the sole (which will take a LONG time), you can return them back to Alden for resoling and complete refurbishing of the upper.
The Original Alden Box IS INCLUDED. Can also include Allen Edmonds shoe trees for an additional $20. Nonreturnable ask questions before bidding. Shipping to ConUS ONLY.
