I have the BB boots. I sized the same as my other Barrie and Trubalance boots.

Question.. Is it possible to change Alden's Commando Sole back to normal double leather soles? Just wondering if this would be an option down the road if the Commando doesn't work out? Same welt... I thought I've seen Mac do this once...

Yes, BNelson and a few others will do this. Alden will not.

nephew,
alden restoration has done this in the past, it is my understanding that they will not currently change from commando to double leather sole. I would call big brother and ascertain there current policy on this matter

Other than leather soles, TSM's cobbler gets all of his soles (crepe, commando, waterlock, etc) direct from Alden. If you want original Alden soles you can swap to double waterlock. Talk to Joe or Ed if you want this done for $115.

I suggest this because double waterlock and double leather are very similar. I do not see a distinct advantage of one over the other.

Here is a pic of my very first Aldens. I got them at an European dealer. And they got me hooked on Alden 13+ years ago... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Edit: The sun appeared, so here is a better, additional picture:

Your Bluchers look great and are very uncommon. Thanks for sharing!!!

Your Cigars are looking great. Am I just tired or do those have brass eyelets? If so from Frans or third party, I.e. Mack?

I guess... I've been wearing my Navals constantly just to wear them out, but to no avail. For someone that dislikes dark shoes, the darker shade of color 8 is a big let down. It's more or less a black shoe to me. 

Your new boots are looking very good!
