My first Unlined LHS. This is one comfortable shoe and my favorite loafer....



We are a business casual shop. I grabbed these from Yenni and they are my new workhorse. 1st experience with plaza.....



Grabbed these from Adam.....

There are some really exceptional Alden retailers but for my money, Yenni and Adam are the gold standard. When I'm just browsing for something new, theirs are always the first 2 sites I visit. In part because of their incredible makeups but also because of the phenomenal service.

great shoes shawn. congrats on getting the nsts.

I think this place is very friendly and inclusive, but you've all seen enough natural CXL LWBs I'm sure.

You forget the purpose of this thread is to enable others to buy more Aldens. Post away.

Good evening, gentlemen.

My first shoefie here.

 

 

My first pair of Alden after 90 wearings.  Just about 8 months old but I've walked more than 400 miles in them.  Keep my feet bone dry in the heaviest downpours.

Your firsts are looking great and are well worthy of being your first shoefie.

That's a stellar looking closet and storage solution.

Look pretty great to me! How do they fit you?

Thanks man. My first and most frequently worn Aldens are on the original sole. Been debating an Alden resole or going with a Vibram through someone else. That crepe is just so comfy though...

Which of these look nicer (one is Alden and the other I'll leave for you to guess):

post #5637 of 10586

I'd reach for the untaped pair on the left, which I assume are c&j

Creases starting to show after two minutes walking.

My softest shell boots so far, very comfortable.
