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

One 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...

Two characteristics with Van slip-ons:

1) Low instep.
2) Wide heel cup.

FWIW-The BB version is unlined and built on the Copley and is TTS....

It is also built on Van last in Shell BB unlined. Runs ever so slightly tighter than its lined brother in Shell.

Alright gotta make a decision. Let go of the Cigar Indy's or the J Crew PCTS?

Very different makeups. While does it boil down to deciding between those two?

I like the JCrew PCTs myself.  That said, you can get those again without too much trouble.  Not the same with the Cigar Indys.

DC is doing one last run of 12 pairs for now to clear out the list that she had. She was talking about getting it in when I was the store the first two weeks of Feb.

I assume he meant 975, the 986 is the Color 8 LHS.

Well I bit the bullet and drove to Niagara Falls this morning to pickup the Ravello NST's and then drive right back home! 3 hours and $120 in taxes and I unboxed these.






These were definitely a grail boot for me so I am stoked to have them!

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.

thanks!
