You can call Alden. They'll ship you a set for about $25, and then have a local cobbler put them on ($15 or so).

 

Aram at AH One Shoes & Repair has the Alden thomas heel and can resole/reheel with it.

I have found some talk about this issue, but not too much. Does it make sense to pull the trigger on these and have a toppy/recessed toe tap installed? Would that impact Alden's restoration service down the road?
If one does go with the toppy route, is that best to do right away or wear in the shoes a while?


I don't have a lot of experience with leather soled shoes outside of the ones I wear exclusively for the office, which don't see much street wear (change into other shoes for commuting).
I usually just put the topy on right away. For walking around NYC I would go with the topy only. I think the topy provides adequate protection for the toe and it's not worth the added expense. I have the topy / recessed tap combo on one pair and probably won't do it again. I choose one or the other depending on the shoes.

The question remains whether Alden will accept pairs that have been worked on outside the factory (e.g. resoled) or had topy rubber sole covers added.

Does anyone have an answer to this? I have a few pairs that could use a resole. If I use a reputable cobbler, can I send these to Alden in the future? I have not heard a definite answer on this.

Question for anyone that has / have any size 7.5d aldens' and would like to trade for 8.5d or anyone that is an 8.5d.

I ordered a pair of color #8 Pitt Boots a few years ago and, to my surprise, they arrived, however, I need a size 7.5d. They are brand new, haven't taken receipt of, price is $775.

If anyone has ravello or whiskey in 7.5d or would like to take them for me please let me know ASAP!!

Are your Pitt Boots from the LeatherSoul order that was done back in early '13? If so, I may have a 7.5e incoming if you are interested in those (I haven't yet received word from LS so I don't know if mine have arrived yet and/or if I am going to keep them once I get them).
post #119498 of 122416
Correct, they are from LS and the date is correct.

Might be interested, however, I need to unload these beauties: don't want t lose my deposit.

Thanks to all who gave me advice yesterday on my boot purchase. I ended up going with these by JCrew because they fit within the parameters that make them versatile and the price was very good. Thanks again for the time to answer my questions and making a noob feel welcome.

Awesome choice!  Where did you get them from, as I know Jcrew has very limited size availability.

Versatility is subjective.

For me, #8 sw boot with antique edge and leefot's tanker would be the 2 most versatile.

I wear mostly:

1 chinos

2 jeans

3 slacks

4 suits (never)



Dark edges feel a bit too formal for me w jeans and even some chinos. That's just me, some folks here wear dark edges casually better than I can.
 

 

 



I happen to agree with DV.  I wore my J Crew PCTs yesterday.  I feel a little uncomfortable wearing them with jeans and some khakis also, but it has more to do with the 270welt/closed heel.  I probably don't wear them as often as I should because I usually go fairly casual.

 

I think I've arrived at the same conclusion.  I've returned the PCT (both JCrew and Shoemart versions) and could never put my finger on it until now.

 

Speaking of antique edge, wearing LWB today with wrinkly chinos.

I have sent shoes with topy's to Alden for recrafting and there has never been an issue.
