Very nice. Are those pink laces? I would not have thought it but they do look nice.

N.B. that I have not done this nor seen the results. If anyone has had this done, it would be useful to see what the finished boot looks like. But if I would trust anyone to do this, it would be B. Nelson.

EDIT: Ahab I actually think Alden will do it if they are already repairing the lacing system on the boot.
Good info. Thank you applky!

Saw Thor's post. Thank you Thor.

Anyone have any pics of some Alden natural chromexcel with some miles on them? I'm curious to see how they age.

Yes they are pink. I had a Charity Event for Breast Cancer and put those in. I got quite a few compliments on the shoes as well as the laces. You have to show support any way you can!!

^Interesting.

However those seem to resemble the Winn Perry Longwings done in 'Walnut Brown' moreso than the Natural Chromexcel.

I know they look good but I'm debating whether I should keep these. On top of the ankle issue, I'm not a big fan of leather soles so I'd have to put another outsole on the front. (traction issues)
And recent purchase of Indy on top of this pair adds up to a lot of money...



Just tried mine on again and even with a thin sock, no issues. Try not lacing to the top while they break in.
