Bonus: These were advertised as having a single leather sole (and are pictured as such on the J Crew website), which was not my preference. I was happy to see mine show up with a double leather sole!

You know what that means? Some other sucker got a pair with no sole at all!

Anyone else pre-order the Alden Indy boot in natural chromexcel with commando soles from Leffot? Been dying lately and want those bad boys to come in already!
post #17826 of 122416

I just bought my first pair of Aldens, an Indy 404 from the Shoe Mart.  I just wanted to find out if it is a common occurrence to see some scuffing/scratching of the leather lining on Alden shoes.  I've attached a picture of the largest defect which is a nickel size rough patch in the leather lining.  This is not an Alden irregular, but is supposed to be first quality. If the rough finish is a common occurrence then I'm ready to start wearing them, but if not then I'll return them to Shoe Mart.  Thanks for your help.

Those sound nice...

I have them in natural, they are awesome. I suppose I could add a commando sole to it if I want?

So for someone who's generally an 11 but on the cusp between D and E, what suggestions are there? Of course, I assume LS won't have E widths stocked, so really the question is: 11D?

welcome to the forum, call or email tom at ls with your questions

Plaza and Leydon need to be swapped. No way Plaza is smaller than Leydon

They are black and double leather soles, I'd say pass. I would kop if they were #8 with single sole.
