Maybe 2 years ago at the Alden + Unionmade party, a few of us (Peterock, me, Jason from Unionmade) talking to Nate Humble who is the Alden west cost rep about coming out with a 6 eyelet Chukka on trubalance last. Jason submitted the order but we never heard anything back.
Then this shows up a few days ago... kinda cool if we had a hand in the design of this boots.
i'm not gonna lie, these look like old man orthopedic shoes but i kinda want a pair. however, as i am planning for a wedding, the alden budget has reduced to $0.00
