Interesting ...

All of my shell boots are on leather soles - save for my color 8 NST on the Commando sole.

Anyone interested in a pair of 9D RL Marlows? Should be a good fit if you are 9.5D, I also put Topys on them.

thank you

awesome.
i'm looking to purchase a pair soon myself. Just trying to find a way to get a discount of any sort.


Just came from a J Crew store.  They have a policy of 15% off for teachers and students.  When the SA tried to apply it the computer wouldn't allow her to do so.  She thought she could side skirt the issue but was unable to do so.  She said none of there promotions can be applied to Alden or other partnership products.  I know last Christmas some people were able to apply a 25% off promotion but they have since sealed that loophole.  Not sure that I want to pull the trigger, but your pics are killin' me!  Great addition to your collection patrick_b.

Saw this posted on Ebay.  They look great, nearly new condition; 975 (shell color 8 LWB).  But I noticed in one of the pics that the soles do not have the Horween stamp on the bottom.  Any idea how this may be the case?

They may have been recrafted or something. My 975s definitely had that new from the factory when new:

I've had shell pairs that don't have the Horween stamp (that were first quality and not recrafted).

Perfect for wet Northern European pavements!

i have these! wearing them right now. these can take a terrible beating. i've ended up hiking unpaved trails with them. no joke. they can truly take the WORST beating and polish up beautifully. i love them.
