I agree with this - for that money I'm getting a pretty special boot.  You can really get a a couple pairs of special boots for that money...

I agree. Unlined in summer. The Lined in Winter...

Man I scuff the crap out of my shoes on those high top chairs!!!

Color 4s look great but indistinguishable from some ravello pairs if you ask me. Rarity? Please. It's been discussed here several times that most of us don't know a single other person with a single pair of aldens. If that isn't rare enough for you, spend $2500 on a 1 of 1.
post #117249 of 122416
That being said, lots of people are paying $2500 or more for "rare" sneakers that can't even be resoled. And rare in those terms means only thousands produced. Ha.

What they are replacing:  (J&M Hutchins)


I might have these refurbed with a Dainite sole as a beater pair

Side by side:



Should have stopped down a bit so the J&M is in focus, but...

Your new LWBs look terrific. Yeah, their colors match quite well.

Check it out:

It's about halfway down the page

;-)

I have been slowly working on more posts about caring for shoes and edging. Hope to get a more detailed post with information up sooner than later.

Looking great in your Whiskeys! I have a pair of those socks as well from Alden DC. Pretty nice.

I would contact the retailer who sold them to you. I have had similar issues fixed before.

Need some sizing advise please. I wear a US size 11E in the Allen Edmonds Strand model. In the Trubalance and Barrie last, size 10.5D fits well. What should my size be in the Grant, Hampton, Plaza and Aberdeen lasts? Thanks a lot.
