Haha. I was going to reserve a pair myself but I'm unsure about  "backordering". I've seen stuff that they've had on backorder an when the date comes they end up pushing it even further down the line. Guess that's the only draw back.

 

And nice tax savings!, that's what parents are for, haha.

 



Gotcha, I went back into google and searched for jcrew cordovan and those came up as a hit. Even though they aren't on the shoe page at Jcrew. So who knows. I don't think any sizes were in stock so it may just be a mistake or long forgotten webpage that when they put in the promo codes forgot to exclude that one collecting dust. Thats going to be my guess. Or could have an order coming in and forgot to take the page down and didn't write the exclusion in the promo code.

The could push it to the fall and that'd be ok with me. I'm in no hurry. Hard to resist a deal.

They were on the jcrew shoe page earlier this morning but they were gone when I double-checked about 1/2 hour ago. My guess is they flooded with orders and took them down, though they are still available in limited sizes for those who are persistent enough to find them

Really wish they were on commando. Reason is that Alden will only refinish with original specs and B Nelson doesnt have low profile commando

Yeah, that's probably what happened. But you're right. A deal like that rarely ever comes around, got to take it. Enjoy them! :D

Hard to pass up as I only have the JCREW captoe #8  in #8 shell and it is a real snug fit...hoping it really does happen....says March 27th....I can then let the cap toe go for sale...then long term can sell the indy when I do get the tanker #8

Lately my go to travel shoes have been a pair of Carmina chelsea boots that never set off the alarm.

This is the biggest downside to Aldens.  I creased my CXL LWB pretty bad shoving my foot into them after security check.  I travel at least once a month and like to pack light.  Wearing non-Alden's and then packing the Aldens sort of defeats the purpose.  Plus, my Alden boots get them most wear on the road as it tends to be cooler than socal.

I got in on the JCrew Indy sale.  This will be my first pair with the Crepe sole.  I have mixed feelings about the Crepe sole, will see how I like them in person.  I've heard they are comfortable, and they likely are.

 

See Ya,

Steve

Crepe seems to generate strong opinions......either you love it or hate it. Fortunately I'm the former. While im conflicted on the Indy style, at this price you don't rea have much time on the fence. Pulled the trigger and 10 minutes later my size was sold out. Glad I did.

Went back and checked and saw the 11 was sold out. I've learned quick its buy now ask questions later.

I was a bit hesitant going off the pictures as they look extremely dull but I'm sure in person they will have the usual glow. I'm slowly coming around to crepe as well. Full price though would have passed. So that was a factor.

well after watching these things for what feels like months and months and always saying no....finally broke down on the price drop.

Traveled proffesionally for eon's in Alden Tassel and LHS with no issue at all. So now the Alden Loafer's set off alarms at the airports? 😂
