1/2 of what we pay retail, 1/3, 2/3, etc.??

 

 

Thanks,


it's around half

Creasing will happen... it depends on the skin it was made from and also how your foot biomechanics. It is almost impossible to have symetrical creasing. Concern? I don't think so.

Leffot also has nice looking Color 8 with antique edge trim.

I'd definitely like to go with the antique edge and black leather. Is this a rare combo? Can it be custom ordered?

Greetings.

 

Like some others, I seem to be developing an obsession with a #8 cap toe boot with commando sole. I like the look of the Grant last. My normal shoe size is 8.5D. The only pair of Aldens I own are All-Weather Walkers in 7.5E, which fit very well. In fact, I'm wearing them right now. Sky Valet has the very boot. What size would more experienced Alden buyers recommend?

I'm relatively certain the antique edge with black is not available on stock models. Also pretty certain you can't custom order one offs, so would have to look for someone doing a preorder on one.

Rather than rack your brain on trying to get rid of the color variation, appreciate the cordovan for what it is, a natural product. The only corodvan color (well shade) that doesn't do this is black.

I've seen some color8 wing tip boots w/ light antique edge at Unionmade. They were so tempting for me, and the boots look super nice in person!

And here're the indy shoes in black. Though it's not the antique edge, but the welt is natural.

And I don't think Alden can be custom ordered. Hope this helps smile.gif

Those broken-in AF53s are almost enough to make me forget the captoes.
