Go sockless with Alden LHS in a warm day~~

Spring is here!
post #3709 of 11793
So, 2 pairs of lined 1st quality LHS's in my size, one brand new (black shell), one almost brand new (#8 shell, 986) were temporarily on eBay last night for $375 each, shipped. I say temporarily because they were only on there for about an hour before I bought them. Figured the lined #8 LHS will be better for suits and sock wearing, freeing me up to thrash the BB unlined ones this summer. And the black BB I bought on the corporate discount for $550 are going back, no need for them, since I really only need one pair and lined will be better. So in the course of one week, I've gone from no LHS's to 3, at an average price of $433/each. I'm gonna call this a victory for my feet, and an utter failure for any pretense of a cop-freeze.

I went down a width in the BB model I have.  Tried the D and it was not right.  Went to a C and it is perfect

PSA - The Alden + Context Roy boot in snuff suede is back in stock.  $595 for suede, though!  Not a fan of Context's Alden pricing.

Where as I have to size up. To a 10 in the BB version. how is the shoe not fitting you correctly? too snug or loose?

Personally, I would let go of the LS UI (don't love cxl enough and the vintage is so much more unique), ironside (reverse chamois wt from B+M is a not an indy lol), and color 8 (tanker is cooler, imo). The 405 could also substitute any of the aforementioned pairs because they're so readily available. Thing is, the 405, as common as they seem to be, are a fantastic boot.

 

Curious to see what you choose to do! Good luck

4481's off the irregulars list:

 

Back in on the shell game after selling my 4060's a few years back...Glad to say I bought another pair of 4060s from TSM which will deliver tomorrow (originally bought the incorrect size from AoM 10 years ago!) bringing me back full circle! Also picking up my 4481's from the cobbler, as I took them in for a rubber half sole. These irregulars are impeccable aside from a minor scratch on the right side boot, which should rub out with deer bone.

Now...to get #8 Indy's....

Which 3 do I sell? (Keep in mind I’ve already sold snuff suede Indys and Blue CXL Indys)

1. OG 405

2. LeatherSoul Ultimate Indy (commando sole) modified with all brass eyelets

3. Leather Soul Vintage Indy (similar owned – none)

4. Ep. Nat CXL Innsbruck Indy (similar – Nat CXL PT boot)

5. Ep. Ironside Reverse Chamois Indy (similar – B&M Reverse Chamois WT boot)

6. Color 8 Shell Indy - modified with all brass eyelets (similar – Color 8 shell Tanker)

7. Black Shell Indy - modified with all brass eyelets and mid brown edge trim (already for sale) (similar – Black shell Tanker)

8. Color 4 Indy with Unicorn horn eyelets (similar – color 4 shell flip flops)

Thanks !

Joe,
I would sell 1,2 and 7.
My reasoning...
1. Standard 405: I've never really been a fan.
2. Ultimate Indy w/brass: Strike while the brass eyelet craze is still hot!
7. Black shell: Prefer black shell on a sleeker last and again current brass craze

You can't however sell those Innsbrucks or I would feel like I led you astray with that purchase.

Which vendor offers the 4481? Is there a name in the heel pad? Are you sure these are 4481 and not 4461?

I'm confused. 4461 is the #8 wingtip boot on Barrie with a storm welt and all eyelets, but are those black? Grant last?

Some digging reveals that 4480 is the #8 wingtip boot with all eyelets on Aberdeen. The typical Alden approach of adding a 1 to the end (or changing the 0 to a 1) would yield 4481, which would suggest these are black shell on Aberdeen. That's the exact makeup I am looking for (all eyelets, Aberdeen, black shell)...

Gotta figure out who makes it. Let me know what's on the heel pad, if anything.
