A family holiday to the USA over Christmas ended up being an Alden pilgrimage for me on the side. It gave me the opportunity to work out my size in all the Alden lasts first hand - no more guessing. I ended up with seven (gulp, yes seven!) pairs of Aldens, 5 of them shell. Today I am wearing my Leffot Natural Chromexcel LWB's which I am really loving. I know my purchases were excessive but I justify them due to the footwear wasteland I come from (Sydney). I now know my size in the various Alden lasts - very dangerous for my bank account indeed.

^ very rare for them to have such a wide range of sizes in stock. None in my size of course, but almost every other size.

Thanks. I'd been dragging my feet about signing up for the pre-order while I researched (and researched and researched...) other boot options. But delivery later this week is so much more enticing than May, and I know I want the Roys. Just placed an order.

I found this thread a few months ago and you guys have hooked me. Just purchased my first two pair of Aldens,

These Indys in #8 and a pair of Cigar LHS.

I got bored...lol This addiction is not good for the wallet:) PTB natural chormexcel from shoemart is coming next week.

Fantastic images! It's clear photography's a hobby as well.

I am wearing my new all-weather walkers for the first time today (thanks again to SF for making me spend more money pointing out the Franco's sale). I obviously don't have a lot to say yet, but they are as advertized. Seeing them in person I think they will make a very handy casual shoe, but for the amount and type of use they will get (bad weather quasi-beaters and casual weekend wear) I am very happy to have gotten them at less than full price. They are a bit lighter in color than the picture indicates - a touch darker than burnished tan (e.g. on 911's).

There is one odd thing that I hope will go away as they break in and I lace them tighter - the leather squeaks like a vinyl couch where the tongue rubs against the lace flaps.

In any case, since they are a classic model but seemingly not well represented on SF I will try to post periodic updates on how they wear in.

simply beautiful...it's pictures like this that made me pull the trigger on my pair of cigar LWBs. Still is and always will be my favorite Alden to come out of that factory. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Anyone have any ideas on who stocks similar boot to the LeatherSoul Vanguard boot...looking for cap toe specifically. I would also be interested in buying second hand if someone has a similar boot they might want to sell in 8D (or close size):

Thanks...JT

as much as the crepe sole was really comfortable and silent, I needed something a bit dressier and how dirty the crepe sole got really bothered me.
