Anyone have the Alden 816 casual shoe? It's a great casual weekend shoe--very comfortable. Can also be a good walking shoe for travel. The only problem is it squeaks big time. I think it's the tongue rubbing against the quarters. Anyone have this squeaking issue and know how to stop the squeaking? A pic of the shoe:

I don't lace them that tightly, and even if I did these should be able to withstand tight lacing. I can see this type of thing happening after lots of wear, but not after the first time out of the box. I'm sending them to Alden for repair, and I like your idea of replacing the speed hooks with eyelets. How long did they take to do the job when you sent yours in?

I've heard putting baby powder in a shoe can stop squeaking.

Anyone know of stockists that carry (or do pre-orders for) LWBs on the Leydon or Grant last (besides Epaulet's Leydon Suede and Natural CXL versions)? My sizing research and false starts are leading me more and more to here...

Yeah, preferably shell LWBs. I'd be interested... maybe I don't have to go Barrie for my first Aldens ha.
