- TASSELS MTO Grade by Alden - They are the BEST executed MTO by Alden for TASSELS so far, par excellence! We all went speechless, when they were unpacked from the shoe box... - This amazing Ravello Cordovan is reckoned to be the rarest Shell from Alden Shoe Company. - Unbelievably well-balanced in colour, tone and shade. Excellent in leather density and smells real nice :-) - Comfortable Barrie Last with a less formal open-lacing look and feel - Flex welt system (weather proof flexible oiled sole) - Speed Hooks Eyelets System
Double Waterloc - The double oiled leather sole on this boot is supposed to enhance durability in the wet, however I'm not sure how effective this really is in practise. The oiled sole gives greater traction overall, compared to a regular leather sole, but it is also softer and appears to wear down alot easier too. Does anyone have any experience with Alden's Double Waterloc Sole?
bad news ... my #8 longwings developed a "rough" spot on my left shoe size of a quarter. the DC alden store is sending them back to the factory for the weird discoloration/defect ... i should have took a pic
- great service from them, and then alden will just ship back to my house when they can buff/fix the spot
good news ... my #8 LS 5th anniversary boots and the black SF boot came in today
