I was leaning towards a pair of Indy boots but don't really have a need for a boot and am not a huge fan of the look with non-denim so I was hoping to get another pair of blucher's in more rugged form.

 

I've kind of narrowed it down to the 2 below and was hoping to get any input/ advice/ etc on either or both models (or any other Alden that may be similar..)

Thanks!

 

PS: so many amazing shoes in this thread..


After a shoe as simple as a calf black PTB, why not mix in something a little more interesting...

I actually was in your boat with the Indy.  However, I found them at a price I couldn't refuse earlier this past summer ($300 BNIB) up in Baltimore.  After each wear I consider them more and more comfortable.  I am convinced it will be the most comfortable shoe/boot I have by the end of this month.  There are a plethora of Indy variations, but I am extremely pleased with the 403.  BTW, I almost never wear denim.

Good luck to you my friend...

 

ps  There is absolutely nothing wrong with your original thoughts on your next Alden purchase.

Sweet! I got the shipping conf. on some CXL dovers I ordered from Haberdash. Thanks to whoever posted that Black Friday code. Pix when they arrive. We'll be able to give the shell boys a run for the money, lol.

So Gents....

Do you have any suggestions for replacement laces for boots?

My black captoe's laces are fraying, and will soon break.

Should I contact one of the factory stores to purchase replacements?

I do prefer the thinner flat laces for these boots. 

I thought about some round waxed laces, but nothing seems to be readily available.

Email Alden at general@aldenshoe.com with your address and what you're looking for, and they are usually happy to mail you a pair of laces free of charge if you ask nicely.

If you're up for trying colored laces, try Benjos.com. Quite a variety of colors to match Aldens of various shapes and shades. Also look to shoelacesexpress. I was told last month that they'll be offering flat waxed boot laces in both "normal" and colored styles

I agree with the chomexcel comment, but I personally prefer leather soles: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens-plain-toe-blucher-brown-chrome-excel/pvc-ald-mxsclp-95080_ald_m_plain_toe_blucher.html

 

These also are beautiful (and there is a sale): https://korvue.haberdashmen.com/products/arthur-unlined-leather-dover/4545422

LHS Family Shot:

Cordovan Calf / Whiskey Shell / Cigar Shell



I picked up the barely worn Cigars for $203 on eBay. There are good deals out there if you're patient.

I hope everyone on here had a fantastic Thanksgiving and a great start to Hanukkah if you celebrate it.
