Sending them to the cobbler to put some commando soles. Wish it came with them...

Alden NYC - Madison has a similiar makeup with commando soles. Last boot on the bottom The Alden NYC boots are on the Barrie last while the LS Jumpers are on the Trubalance.

Everytime I see that Cigar captoe I want it even more. Not enough cash for a pair though shog[1].gif

Anybody know if they have 10 or 10.5 left?

Settling for Ravello isn't so bad  .  .  .

Hahaha, "settling" for Ravello... Never thought I'd hear that one.

Hi guys,

Need some help identifying the lasts of a couple of Aldens.

The first pair can be found here http://shop.tessabit.com/shopping/men/alden-oxford-shoe-item-10134743.aspx

467

Never seen a pair like these, with a double sole...


Second pair are from The Shoe Mart, but for some reason they've left out the description in the info box:
http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens_medallion_cap_toe_burnished_tan/pvc-ald-mxsdlc-22720_ald_m_medallion_cap_toe.html

350


Thanks!

Seems I found an answer (Aberdeen) to the Shoe Mart Cap Toes in a previous post.

You guys are going to re-sole them as soon as you get them? Why not burn out the factory sole first?

Just seems a shame to 'waste' 1 of 3 possible resoles (over the life of the shoe) just for a bit a tread confused.gif

If it's traction you need, topy them.

If it's simply just for the looks, well I guess there is no other way than to get them re-soled.

In case anyone is interested, Frans Boone has some fresh preorders available online in Cigar shell. Delivery expected in the fall. I couldn't resist the PT Boot in Cigar.

Anyone have pictures or further details?  Closed heel or 360 welt?  Speed hooks or all eyelets?  Maybe I'll try to contact them later and find out.

Looks like this is the link for the boot referenced above:

http://www.fransboonestore.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=337_389&product_id=694

Unfortunately, it doesn't have any pics or seem to answer any of your questions. They have a lot of pre-orders up on their site right now, including a couple more Cigar offerings, as well as a Ravello boot on the Plaza which looks pretty nice. Although, the Ravello boot looks more like Whiskey to me - maybe they already have the same boot in Whiskey that they are going to be offering in Ravello now, but it's not in production yet so they show pics of the Whiskey version online?
