The Official Alden Indy Appreciation Thread - Page 10
I wish my feet would keep my 403s looking pretty in the toe box like you guys. Mine get all distorted along the stitching... I guess due to foot shape/flat feet. Anyone else have this problem? I suspect it isn't as bad with the 405s and other less stretchy leather models.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Are you using shoe trees? My 403s has multiple folds as well, but not as shown as yours. It might be fit/feet as well, my left shoe creases very differently than my right shoe.
Mine at 6 months old, okay I really need to step up the game on photos
Indeed I am using shoe trees. Mine are also 4-5 years old vs you 6 months. The creases don't bother me so much as the stitching just looks uglier when it's all splayed out like on mine as opposed to a nice clean arch on others'. I'm wondering if I should be taking a 6.5 narrow as opposed to a 6 regular.
They're looking great. Only a little bit darken, very nice color.
Who sells a really good 5mm waxed lace? What I'm finding out there looks to be (A) not very waxed (B) not very nice or (C) not 5mm (or sometimes all of those things...)
Do you have the link for those laces? Looking pretty good.
What did you do to get that nice shine on them? They look great….I have a pair of natty CXL chukkas I just won on Ebay and need to spruce them up like that
They've been through a couple sessions with Alden Boot Creme, but mainly I just wipe 'em down with a slightly damp cloth and brush them every once in a while. I also brush them pretty thoroughly before and after every wear (which I do with all of my shoes).
