These are fabulous 👍
Perfect color..

I Like to think about what I have and need and how a new purchase will fit into a rotation and be worn most often. Many times that helps with the decision. Failing that, have a few drinks get back online and buy them both! Honestly though I don't think you will make a wrong decision either way. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

 

that typically works for me when faced with these first world problems, haha.

Those are really nice shoes - says well dress professional girl;
Thank you - I reply;

Me : speechless

Funny, that happened to me once with #8 LWBs at Logan airport. The lovely woman in question was about 75 y/o. Her late husband was a shoe guy and she knew they were Alden. It was a nice conversation.

I've said it before and firmly believe that when Aldn is on their game, no one does it better. Just got these back from restoration. Took a little longer than usual, but who cares. I could not be more pleased.......



Additionally, just got these from restoration (via fellow SF'er, thanks @Allen Dreadmon). Not much of a black shell guy but again, couldn't be more pleased.....



Kind of reminds me of these beauties.....

I've got a ways to go, but I'm gunning for you @chipshot. These LHS's are definitely growing on me. I especially like the sockless look you sport so well.

Two great stories. Would love to have been a part of either conversation.

I was at some airport a couple of years ago and some stranger comes up and asks what boots I'm wearing (Alden Nat CXL Indy boots, since sold).  He said he was looking for a nice pair of stylish work boots.  I gave him the info and could see him sitting with his wife/partner googling away.  His eyes seemed to bug out and he came over and asked if that was what they really cost!??!!  I guess he didn't buy them.

Congratulations! Beautiful boot! The first pair turns into many quickly. My first pair was in January this year. I now own 5 Alden's in total, deposit on another and on a wait list for another - both with Yenni. AE really seems to be the gateway shoe company😳.
