Thank you for the info.

Haha, basically, @MrVenneri

 

Not sure when these will be run again, but contact Ed at TheShoeMart...I believe there is another list to hop on just in case.

Thanks again for the heads up on these.....mine arrive yesterday and look great.

 

Wanted to get the forum's thoughts on the heel finish though.

 

It looks like the rubber portion of the heel stack was not cut cleanly on the inside of the heel.

 

Is this something I should be worried about?

Wow.  I'd like to take those wingtip boots out for a nice romantic getaway.  My naval boots would be pushing the pedals in the two-seater while the #4 are strapped in beside me.  A spirited drive to the Berkshires, nice dinner at a country inn, the works.  Strictly platonic, of course.

Haha, thanks Mike, I'll wear them, just need to wait for the snow to go away.

As @tifosi says, they're from early 2015, they stood untouched for 10 months or so before I could try them on. Luckily they fit, my first boots on the Aberdeen last so was a little worried.

Ooh, man, those boots... (Especially the SW ones.)
MrDV, your collection of Aldens is stunning, but I see no chukkas. Now, I've only seen pictures of your shoes/boots and your pants, but I thought chukkas would go well with your style?
I love them, I first learnt about Alden when researching to buy a nicer chukka.

They are on Ed's to do list again, but they are pretty much at the bottom of it since it was his last run of Ravello.

I wouldn't think twice about that or worry about it in the least.
