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

I know creasing is unavoidable with CXL but I only wore these for a 2 minutes in my apartment and say the cracking (like super dry skin). Is this something i should just ignore or would it hurt to put some VSC or neatsfoot oil on it to condition it back up. Think sitting in a cold warehouse for weeks could be the cause?

 

 

I know this is probably you first big shoe purchase after reading this thread and seeing people's anally maintained boots. Just don't worry about, these are shoes and shoes are meant to be worn. Alden makes their shoes tough so they can take a beating, they are not piece of art meant to be brushed and pampered. Here are my Indys after 3 continents, 2 monsoon seasons, 4 heels and 3 years. 

 

Just enjoy your shoes!

From the side...these boots are actually more beat up in person if you can believe it.

What kind of leather is the boot in the top row, second from the left?

My babies are in. I took a shot in the dark at 8.5D on the Aberdeen and it fits me like a glove. One of my favorite lasts I've ever tried.

Here's a cross post from Instagram.

Preordered the Leffot Cooney boots... Alden NYC is holding a pair of black Indy calfskin boots, in still undecided on those - owners, how much do you wear them?

Next up are a dressy color 8 blucher, a black blucher (I don't see the Leather Soul shortwings getting made anytime soon) and maybe black tassels.

That would be Horween's Tobacco Chamois leather. The reverse of the same leather is used for the LWB, 3rd on the right of the bottom row.

Fantastic!  Congratulations to everybody who got these - been enjoying all of the pictures being posted lately, along with stories of 3 hour drives and border crossing, etc…

Congrats, Bobbo. They look great! 8.5D fits me really well too.

@DiscoVolante

outstanding collection sir. 
I actually did the exact same thing! Just when you think Frank is in the dumps, he'll make just the right move and just the right deception. Looking forward to seeing how he will get the DNC's 2016 nomination. Btw, your cigars look great DV!

Alden x Harrison Cigar Dover on Plaza. Never disappointed when I reach for these.

I love this model of boot. They are Aberdeen, great fit, lightweight and the boots breath with all that hand stitching. I wear my #8's in this makeup more than any other boot. Very excited to get these in Ravello.
