To minimize the slip, I've adopted the lock-lacing pattern.
Try it out, it'll lock in your heel without noticeabley squeezing your forefoot.

Great casual look! Really liking these boot!
I've seen a few pairs of blue suede Alden's here and on the suede appreciation thread. When I contacted Alden, they stated that these were made at the request of an Alden retailer. Can anyone give me a lead on an Alden retailer selling blue suede? Much appreciated.
