post #14566 of 122416
Looking for a pair of Black Shell PTBs in size 9D. Anyone who has a pair looking to get rid of them please let me know. I'm looking for used, as I don't want to spend a huge amount. I have a pair of C&J Handgrade Captoe Audleys (9447-12) that are barely worn that I'm looking to replace with the Aldens. So if someone reading is looking for this specific swap, please let me know. The C&Js are BARELY worn. Maybe 10 times total and are in immaculate shape, size UK 8.5E.

Starting to like the Grant last more. Apologies for the crappy iPhone photo in flourescent office lighting. Cigar captoe boots with commando sole & Marcoliani OTC cotton socks purchased on B&S.

finally decided to buy the shoe i've wanted for years but never pulled the trigger.

975s are in the mail.
post #14572 of 122416
it was my first alden purchase ... once you start you cant stop hah
post #14573 of 122416
i know the feeling. i've started and stopped many times with alden. i've owned/own black shell chukkas, cigar chukkas, AF84s, PTBs, and the list goes on.

just for some reason, never pulled the trigger on the 975s. gonna throw on some navy laces and rock with the RRL officers.

This may be an old topic, but I have been away on vacation and have to chime in.

Bryan has been nothing but the best when I visit the store. He knows so much about Alden's and has taught me so much. Always courteous, friendly, and patient with my tons of questions!

It wasn't busy that day, but even when I've gone in on busy days, he's taken the time to acknowledge me immediately after seeing me in the store and coming over to help me as soon as he had a free moment.

+1. Well done, Lagsun. The Grant is one of my favorite Alden lasts. Its got the comfort of the Barrie combined with the "sleekness" of the Plaza.

Thanks. I purchased them from SF member HorseHide. I heard these were a special makeup for Alden DC but don't quote me on it.
