I was fortunate enough to receive one of the latest shipments of Cigar captoes from Alden DC!  This is my first pair of shell so I'm not really familiar with it.  They make a ton of noise when I walk from various parts rubbing against one another - I'm assuming that will go away with time?  Is there a way to make it go away faster?

Congrats! It's crazy exciting to receive your first pair of shell. Squeakiness is part of the charm of the Real McCoy. I have pairs worn 20-30+ times that still squeak. I recommend that you simply wear them loud and proud!

A bit of disappointment today. My first pair of shell which I ordered as part of a group preorder in February was finally completed. Unfortunately my pair was deemed defective and Alden apparently doesn't remake special orders. Looks like I will be shell-less for a few months more.

I feel your pain. Same thing happened to me. But hey, at least you didn't a defective pair and be even more pissed.

Yeah, when Alden gets boots right, they're great. But I know several retailers (one who got out of the Alden game altogether earlier this year because of this) who are fed up with it. Alden has sent them the wrong sizes for pre-orders, and not cared that customers were left high and dry (happened to me). Has sent seconds-quality boots to them, and said "tough, sell it or we'll consider you too whiney to do orders with." Has sent half of a sold-out pre-order to one store and told them they wouldn't be getting the other half of the order anytime soon because they hadn't started on it yet, sorry, tell half your customers they won't be getting anything. And of course there is the "one pair is seconds quality, no we won't remake it and no we won't let you sell it to your customer for seconds price" issue as well.

^TIA. This Is Alden.

The quality control is not very good. Some will make excuses. I will not.

I feel your pain....Same thing happened to me with my Aberdeen Ravello Tankers, my heart still bleeds every time I think of it.....

Congrats on the new boots. Got any pics in the sunlight? How's the shade on this recent run. I got an email on them (after an over 2 year wait) and I might actually be passing on them. If they somewhat lighter than they have been or possibly had some olive tones I might have to reconsider.
