Thanks! I need more whiskey in my shoe closet (I know some folks don't like it, but I love it). Plenty in the liquor cabinet already...

my best!

i bought my first pair of Aldens in japan last year:
Alden | Cap Toe Kidskin Boots 41886H | Modified Last | Ships Japan Edition.


 

I like these a lot. Where to kop? Do they still have this model or something similar? 

post #120986 of 122416
I'm looking to buy a pair of Alden Indy(s) - not sure of the preferred plural form ("Indies" looked odd) - and would prefer a commando sole. First choice would be cigar cordovan (pipe dream, I reckon); second choice would be #8 cordovan (also not likely to happen). Since my first two choices likely aren't available without getting on a waiting list, do you guys know of any Alden retailers who carry an Indy with a commando sole?

I promise I've done a bit of legwork myself, but I am definitely not as knowledgeable as many here who know of more retailers and have a better idea what models they might/might not have.

I see the Alden Shop of San Francisco has #8 Indy(s) with the double waterlock sole (definitely a possibility). I also called Leather Soul and they are ordering more of their Ultimate Indy(s) in brown Chromexel with an expected arrival in May (but I'd rather not wait that long).

I saw Epaulet has two styles, but the style/size I like isn't available. I've tried on a pair and need an 8.5M in the Trubalance last. If you'd prefer to not gum up the works of this thread responding to me here, you are welcome to PM me.

While I'm at it (I rarely post on SF and even more rarely post in this thread), I'd like to say I really enjoy seeing everyone's Alden pics. So, even if your pics don't have 35 "Likes", there are probably dozens more people like me who do enjoy them and don't take the time/make the effort to recognize you for taking the time/making the effort to take pics and posting them here.

Get in touch with Adam (@Alden of Carmel) at Alden of Carmel.  He has a preorder for June/July delivery for the following model:

 

AF134 - Color 8 shell cordovan Indy boot, Trubalance last, commando sole, handsewn vamp, matched agatine eyelets and hooks, regular (flat) welt, close heel, antique welt and sole edge. (deposit $275); Sizes available for pre-order, June/July delivery: D width: 6, 6 1/2, 7, 7 1/2, 8, 8 1/2, 9, 9 1/2, 10, 10 1/2 E width:  8 1/2, 9, 9 1/2, 10, 10 1/2  ($755)

 

He has the 8.5D in Trubalance available for preorder. I know you don't want to wait, but the Alden shell game is all about waiting.
