Just checked with them, Alden not eligible for discount. So its an error, which means they may ultimately decide to cancel your order.
Would have to agree with this.... I wasn't a big fan of the NST style at all until I saw the leffot tanker boot in color 8.... fell in love with the boot, got a pair and they are special - just something about the style that nothing else has.
Honestly, the lighting in the pic has a great impact on how shiny these shoes look. I have several shells that look great, but even better with sunshine/outdoor pics. Like this one, for instance...
I cleaned this pair with a damp cloth and brushed for a minute or two. No reno, paste wax, etc... just damp cloth, brush, buff, and a great sunny day.
