Thank you.

OK. I'll post if any update.

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.

 

Thanks.

Which store did you get those from. They do resell shoes which have been tried on or returned from customers with a bit of imperfection but those are the worst I've ever seen. That's totally unacceptable. How's the condition of the soles?

 

Thank you, Steve.

Thank you guys.

 

Alden Madison said I can send the shoes back and they will process a refund for me. I decide to send shoes back to them.

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? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Does it feel soft or hard?

I am a real estate appraiser so I won't be wearing these while digging ditches or anything but they will see frequent wet grass and the occasional construction site with dirt and mud. Is this the wrong boot for me?
Would I be better off considering the Ironside Indy? I dig it, it has the commando sole, but I am worried the chamois will stain with all of the waling through wet grass I do.
Thanks for any insight.

I have owned crepe and found it to be an excellent bad weather shoe. I know others have shared different experiences, but I found it to be the most comfortable and practical of all the Alden soles. Just not the most aesthetically pleasing. At the jcrew price, they make great kickers and actually cost less than the Ironside.
 
Any chance you (or anyone who ordered the JCrew Indy) know what last it is built on?

Huge thanks to  @inn8chiro for letting me pick up his Leffot Day Tripper in Chamois! :slayer: Great boot paired with @Rogue Territory RK ISC Trousers.

695 GBP.

I love those Leffot Trippers. Such a great make up. I hope to snag a pair the next go around.

Are these the 403 or 405 Alden Indy? 

Those are Ultimate Indys. So the leather is the leather they use on a 403. Leather Soulf just has these made with a commando sole.

My shoemart 2nds arrived. I'm really liking these casual suede ones. The crepe some is really comfy. I do see why they are 2nds though. There's a small cut on the suede near the tip of one of the shoes. I'm fine with that though so will most likely end up keeping these.

Nice, interesting makeup with the suede, brass eyelets, and crepe soles. Must feel like butter with those materials! Congrats, I would keep them too.

They do feel nice. Like someone else suggested earlier in the thread, I can wear them as an alternative to sneakers since they're a very casual makeup and have the crepe soles.

 

I also got these CXL LWBs on crepe that I'll be sending back since they are a bit too similar to my tobacco chamois LWBs on commando. It appears that when they were doing the sole dressing on these, they came up on to the welt on one of the shoes which made these 2nds. If anyone wants these, let me know soon otherwise I'll be returning them to TSM. They are 8.5D on Barrie.
