Aw that stinks! As others have said, I would not accept paying full price for these. Not sure if you will be happy getting a discount or just returning them for exchange/refund. As stated above, please keep the forum up to date with the outcome and good luck dealing with the merchant, hope they exceed your expectations in addressing this.

Are these the 403 or 405 Alden Indy?

What is the general consensus on when you need to get your shoe resoled? Obviously if there is a hole in the sole, but are there any other warning signs? 

 

I find that the stitches near the toe and left side of my shoes can wear away pretty quickly. The heels look like they still have a lot of life though.

 

Any thoughts?

I would say you still have quite a bit of life left overall. Short of developing actual holes, on leather soled shoes, I usually wait until the stitches near the toe (or anywhere really) are striking directly on the ground (i.e. the leather part around that area of stitching is worn down enough that the stitches are sticking out further than the leather) and/or the stitches are breaking or about to break.

Trunk Clothiers is getting a shipment of whiskey PTB. Has anyone here gotten in on these? No word on pricing yet, but I'm thinking that after UK import taxes and currency conversion, they will not be cheap.

Unless the soles feel very soft/spongy those do not look to me to be anywhere near requiring a resole.

Okay, great. That's what I was thinking.
