Lined or unlined in just the forefront part of the shoe? The sole is different as well, correct?

***The official Alden thread *** Share enthusiasm, reviews, sizing, advice, and photos. - Page 6963post #104431 of 1224162/28/15 at 3:36ampost #104432 of 1224162/28/15 at 8:09amOne of my finer Alden moments this am. Walk into a small crepe resturant in AA and the (college aged) hostess says "I really like your boots (CXL PCTs), they go great with your jeans (selvedge)." I immediately handed over my wallet as a tip.
This does not bode well for my Alden purchases...post #104433 of 1224162/28/15 at 8:15ampost #104434 of 1224162/28/15 at 8:17ampost #104435 of 1224162/28/15 at 8:40ampost #104436 of 1224162/28/15 at 8:49ampost #104437 of 1224162/28/15 at 8:59ampost #104438 of 1224162/28/15 at 9:02ampost #104439 of 1224162/28/15 at 9:03ampost #104440 of 1224162/28/15 at 9:12ampost #104441 of 1224162/28/15 at 9:14ampost #104442 of 1224162/28/15 at 9:20ampost #104443 of 1224162/28/15 at 9:22amQuote:

As some here has said, there are two stores that are owned by the factory. Alden of Washington D.C. (Typically referred to Alden DC) and the Alden Shop (more commonly referred to as Alden SF here).
Alden DC does not have any web presence at all.
Alden SF used to be an independently owned retail store and owns and runs the aldenshop.com domain. That is the only way to actually buy shoes from Alden Shoe Company directly online.
The Alden Factory also runs a website aldenshoe.com that is for information only and does not provide any web sales.
Kathy is the manager at the Alden DC shop and is a great and knowledgeable individual about shoes, Alden and shoe repair. She also is the one to typically manage the stores special orders including shoes and boots made out of Exotic Colors of Shell Cordovan.
Jim is the manager of the Alden SF shop and is of a similar stature to Kathy. Both are great.
Outside of the Alden Shoe Company, there is a whole slew of fantastic independently owned stores that carry Aldens. Several of them are Alden only shops.
See my signature for the FAQ post as it hopefully should answer many of your questions.
called the dc store today and spoke with kathy. she put my name on a couple of list for upcoming boots!
