We have to break to break this news to you gently my friend.
This is how the Alden game works.
1. Find the shoe you are interested in buying.
2. Find a shop that makes them.
3. Get on the list until the next run.
4. Wait and excruciating amount of time. (1-2 yrs.)
4. Buy up Alden shoes and boots in your size...especially the rare ones because you don't know when and if you will ever get them again.
5. Become good friends with @mdubs
6. Find other Alden homeboys in your size sitting on rare models and buy them up.
7. Follow this thread religiously.
As you can imagine...I had fun making this list.
However, know that there is a good bit of truth in every bit of sarcasm.
