apparently Alden is no longer mixing shell and suede, or at least #8 with suede due to bleeding of the die into the suede.....as a result the make up was changed to #8 with alpine grain saddle

this is reportedly a thing of the past as well.....get it while you can unless you want to have them chaged after purchasing

That's a bummer. To me the new style isn't even comparable.

I say Alden can solve this issue and do a Snuff Suede with Whiskey Saddle. Shouldn't be any noticeable bleed. I saw we spearhead that campaign. "The Whiskey Saddle" or the "Marcus Brody" (In keeping with an Indiana Jones theme)

The split in the welt on one of them is lifted up though so it could caught on something .. the mark on the toe stands out .. I can't see how this would be acceptable on an almost 600 dollar boot .. i sent an email to context clothing with pics .. waiting for their reply. I spoke with them on the phone and they were just like whatever .. i can send them back. I really like them but that mark just looks weird.

So, I took my older 403s and tossed a thin coat of black dye on them to black out the stitching and freshen them up. I'm not sure if before or after is better...

I think they look great. Still a bit of a brown undertone, it seems.

Thanks. They're still chocolatey in tone, so I need to find a good lace color.
