My god that's terrible. It looks like two completely different welts. And that took a lot of balls for the salesman to Say he "Noticed a color difference." Good thing you can return them.

Wow, these look like the bomb-diggity. Congrats on the pickup! I'm not sure I can pull off the look myself but they are sweet.

Thanks! I'd been looking at the shell version for quite sometime, too, Mike. When I saw this one on Plaza I decided it was too good to pass up. Do you happen to know if the Brick + Mortar LWB in dark brown "Regina Calf" is the same as this leather (TSM calls this one a soft, tumbled scotch grain)? I almost ordered that LWB from Yenni too.

Thanks! This is my third or fourth monk strap shoe, including one I had in college many years ago, and I honestly think they're not hard to pull off at all. Always enjoy seeing someone wearing a pair of monk straps!

Shit...Ain't nothing "Poor" about them.

In my opinion they scream punk rock scene, 1980s London, Dr. martens Ass - Kickers. And that is exactly the look I was drawn to since they were introduced. So while Rydan and his gang of merry men are out there kicking shit with there new and improved Pitt Boot, I'm gonna be kicking ass with mine.

The RydanFan boot is more military, officer vibe with the, no pun intended, commando sole. I was going for more of a Fight the Power, question authority look. Not to mention the crepe is, IMO, slightly more comfortable than the commando sole.

But I'm glad you got in on them:)

That is just f--ing crap!  This is what I was talking about the other day.  Just no excuse for this type of stuff to make it out of Alden's doors!  I feel vindicated and saddened at the same time.

Glad someone on here picked those up, such a great makeup for less-than-ideal weather. I'd have done the same if it didn't come so close to a pre-order that I'm already on.

New Epaulet x Alden Taunton boots. I was looking for something that would be great for the handful of rainy days we get in Austin. Pretty happy about these -- the alpine grain is a great color.

One looks like it has a flat welt, while the other seems to have a storm welt. Bizarre?!
