Alden group MTO shell Indy

Details of the boot are still in the works.
However, anyone seeking wide sized boots or narrow, will have the opportunity to order in this multi-width MTO

12 pairs confirmed are needed to proceed.
PM if interested you will be added to the list.

Stormy day here so I had to break these out for a spin. Cordovan Tanker Model M6903HY. The website said Barie, I wrote Alden and they said they were Trubalance. It's weird because this retailer has the exact same boot on its website in Trubalance Model M5904 called Indy Work Boot. The Bureau I have to believe would be correct. I think the help at Alden might have misspoke. Either way comfortable boot.

^ The squared off nature of the U-stitch makes me think TruBalance. Barrie U-stitches tend to be more curved.

Agree - I've never seen the boxy stich on anything but TruBalance.  I'd also tend to trust the Alden folks over a stockist...

If Alden says it's Trubalance, it's Trubalance.  Retailers don't always know what they're talking about (see, e.g., J.Crew's "Horween Chromexcel shell cordovan upper").

 

Plus, that stitch shape is always indicative of Trubalance. The last shape is also a giveaway - too rounded to be Barrie.

Looking for some opinions. Thinking about thinning my collection out a bit. Which would you guys keep Epaulet Ironside Indys or Leathersoul Vintage Indy?

Random question but does anywhere wear these sockless or only the unlined ones from BB?

Yes, I sometimes wear them sockless, no issues, no problems, no worries.

Alden is accepting GMTOs again? :slayer: 

 

Any limitations on the models and leathers?

It's more like a retailer is agreeing to submit a run of 12 pairs if they are committed.  I don't think you can do them in any rare shells (I mean, you could if the retailer and Alden agreed, but it would be a very very long time for the order to come in).  Most Alden shell runs are for 12-24 pair now.  Some rare shell runs are only 6 pairs.
