J Crew Ludlow Shoes...Alden make? - Page 5

I took a look at the shoes and boots at my local J Crew again yesterday. I still don't see what you guys are talking about. They look like knock-off Alden's with cheaper leather. Whether it's the long wings or the knock-off Indy Boots... They look better in the catalogue then they do in person.

Of course if they are constructed well, then they break in/fit well and they will last and they do look cool (other than the leather when you look up close).. At the $300 - $370 price point, I would rather dance with Allen Edmonds when they go on sale at Nordstrom (or at the AE store) or pay a bit more for full price. AE makes an excellent shoe - almost all of them are made in the USA.

Just an example with a random internet search:
