Yes, they have darkened quite a bit from new due to much love and wear.

Your PTBs are looking sharp and I agree the Black laces are interesting (in a good way).

Hi alden enthusiasts,
I recently found a worrisome flaw with my pair of alden indy boots.


Is this a significant structural problem?

If it is, how could I go about fixing it?

Thanks in advance for the input

yes! demand a new boot/shoe. Had this happen on a pair of indy boots TWICE, after alden said they fixed it. Finally got a new pair and have had no problems. also make sure that you are sized correctly.

Did you email the same alden store u got the boots from? Or would any alden store do?

brought them to an Alden factory store. I'm lucky to live close to alden dc. I would try contacting the store you purchased them from first. This sort of thing should not be happening on a $400+ boot, and any store that sells alden should take care of you.

^ Before demanding a new boot, worth finding out if that pair is new, used, heavily used, abused, etc.  The boot should be well made and not have flaws but if that separation is happening after years of heavy wear and tear, I think it's worth seeing a cobbler or checking into refurbishing before demanding that Alden just replace them.

 

I don't know what the situation is, just saying that there may be more to it.

I have only had my boots for 5months. I take care of them and brush them with a horse hair brush when they get dirty. Basically only wearing them to school.
I got in contact with them and they advised me to send them in fo a repair which would take about 2 weeks. In your opinion do you think I should do that or demand for a replacement? My boots are size 7.5c which is not commonly stocked, so there might be a long wait time to get a replacement as well.

Did the same issue happen twice on the same boot even after they fixed it? Or did it happen once on each boot?

I am in Grad School about 4 days a week.  If I wore only 1 pair of boots 4 days a week for 5 months straight, I would expect some serious wear issues to develop.  

 

Wear issues to the degree that you are picturing?  It all depends on various other factors as well.

 

But, in reality, I think that the degree of wear you are seeing may not be that uncommon for the amount of wear you are putting on them.

 

Thanks.

Am I wrong or does it seem like Leffot isn't doing close to the same number of Alden pre-orders these days?  (Which, on the one hand, I am grateful for.)

Probably a result of opening a second store and coordinating more trunk shows.

Not to mention leffot tends to get make ups confirmed in bunches so perhaps several make ups will release soon.

5 months of regular wear, even brush them clean periodically....
$500 boots....
Completely unacceptable.
