Got these from the Shoemart Alden Seconds eMail a few months back. Only $289 and can't find the reason they're seconds. Been wearing them for a little bit now. Love them.

At least you get the satisfaction of having a bunch of people walking around on your design in a few months! Not a bad consolation prize. I'm ordering a pair of the chrome excel jumper shoe. Any other takers on this preorder? Also, anyone have an answer to my tobacco reverse chamois vs tobacco oiled nubuck question? I've gotten conflicting information from two Alden dealers. Someone set the record straight!

Maybe because they eyelets don't line up perfectly? Also they look scuffed and worn.

It's a beautiful day here in San Francisco so I thought I'd take my Aldens up to the roof for a photo session. Here's a taster.

Might be the angle of those pics, but the eyelets are actually pretty straight. I've worn them for the past month...

Are the pictures true to the suede colour as when I look at other models in snuff the shades seems to be more orangey brown.

Has anyone purchased the above model or has seen them in person that can confirm the colour? many thanks for any help.
anyone?

Check for commando vs double leather sole and/or speedhooks.
Other LS cordovan Indys I have (#8, black, whiskey) came with speedhooks and double leather soles.
The Shoe Mart ones have commando and no speedhooks.
