I'm happy to have enabled an Alden purchase!  I'm positive you will enjoy them.  They feel a bit more substantial than my other Alden boots which I really like.  I just wish they came with eyelets - but I plan to change that very soon.  Enjoy and don't forget to post pictures!

I would have preferred matching eyelets but it wasn't enough to dissuade me. Like you, I can always add later.

I'm not worried about the heft though I do have aconcern with the last. I was one of the lucky ones to get in on jcrews 30% off of their initial run of color 8 indy's. I ordered what was my normal Barrie boot size of 9D and never even tried them on as they looked enormous and I took an immediate dislike to them. I grabbed these in a 8.5D so we'll see.

Will definitely post pic's. Strangely enough, I wore my Leffott dovers yesterday as well. Easily one of my favorites.

@sazon They're one of the new boots from unionmade. Ill consider myself lucky that the box contains a qc issue rather than the shoes. These are pretty flawless which is awesome.

They're "kudu" like the indy 404. Its pretty waxy and seems tough. I was on the reverse chamois boots from b+m too but I put down my deposit before i had my sizing nailed down. Its going in my regrets pile. Although now Im now waiting on the snuff suede boot so its not all bad :)
