Heat wave here in MI today, but slushy.

King 975
Suede boot
Other exotic shell option

What do you think?

Thank you

I agree with @mdubs, 975s are a classic and would round out your collection nicely.

Walked into Alden DC carrying my Color 8 Perf Tip Balmorals and wearing Color 8 LHSes. Walked out wearing Natty CXL LWBs. This is the first time I have bought and wore the shoes out of the store.

The Perf Tips need a new heel and the LHSes are getting a new finishing only.

Those LWBs are fantastic. I used to dislike natty CXL but now I am pretty sure it will be my next scoop. I wish I had gotten Unionmade's NST boot.

Will Alden replace just a heel or do you have to recraft the whole shoe?

I would love a full brugue boot in cigar.
975 would have to be with antiqued edge since I already have the 4060 with black edge.

Agreed.  Natty cxl is such an amazing leather.  I think the natty ptb is one of aldens best casual offerings.  On my want list for sure.

Guys, the subject of international shipping has come up several times recently what, with all the amazing make ups at overseas shops. Here's the form - "Declaration for Free Entry of Returned American Products" - Frans included with my saddles, when they were shipped to me "Back in the USA:"




I'm assuming this is what prevents additional entry fees/duty. Probably a standard form they always use - shoes were shipped in late November/early December 2014 but the form is dated 1/14/2014

I don't know how to rotate pics on SF - let me know if you do, and I'll glady take care of it so it's a bit easier to read.

Speaking of Nat CXL, Leffot will have two preorders on Monday

One of my favorite LWBs Mike, congrats!  I'm a little surprised as I was under the impression that Alden DC's Natty chrmxl Lwbs came with a natural welt.  I got mine from TSM to avoid the natural welt.  Enjoy those chrmxl beaters; they can handle it with grace! :slayer:

Not sure if this impacts you, but Alden DC had several D and E widths available for a little over $100 off on Natty and Navy CXL lwbs.
