From what I can gather, it looks like this was a 2010 run for LeatherSoul: http://leathersoul.com/2010/11/22/alden-shoes-4x4-ptb-lsw/
I wonder what the price was back then and how many were made - rarity of makeups usually drives up price too (which we all know color 2, 4 are RARE as is, especially for Alden). The market for rare shell (and yes, a lot of Asian market sellers) is definitely booming.
It's amazing to be able to sell a shoe (even cigar, whiskey, ravello) that you bought years ago and sell for no loss (even well worn) or make some profit in come cases. I might have to do the same when my kids go to college lol
