WTB: Alden whiskey shell cordovan chukkas, Barrie last

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I am looking for a rather obscure pair of Alden shoes-whiskey shell cordovan chukka boots in 9E. I've already talked to Tom at Leather Soul, Adam at Alden-of-Carmel, the Alden shops in NYC, SanFran and DC. I'm looking for either the shoes themselves or suggestions on where I can obtain them, whether in the US or otherwise. Thanks!

Try Shoemart in Norwalk, CT. They are the only authorized dealer with Alden seconds which might be your best bet to source what you are seeking. Ask for Marta @ 800 850-7463. Good luck!

Thanks Andy. I've talked to Ed Z at the Shoemart and had zero luck there...though I was able to acquire a pair of 1339s and 1340s dirt cheap, which was a nice consolation prize.

I had the good fortune to find a whiskey NST blucher two weeks ago. So I'm feeling lucky at the moment, but lightning doesn't usually strike twice.

For the record, I had the good fortune to land both the whiskey shell chukkas and a pair of whiskey shell PTB this week. Now that ain't bad!

I have a pair of never worn 10D whiskey shell cordovan long wingtip's I got a couple years ago from Alden of Carmel. I tried selling them on ebay a couple months ago for a small fortune (figuring they are impossible to get) but no bites.

Gouging doesn't work out well in this business, I've noticed. Too many other good deals to spend ones limited dollars on. Oh yeah, there's kind of an economic thing going on now, too.
