Nice shoes, Don.
One of Alden's best models, stock or otherwise.
Speaking of longwings, thinking of getting a pair in #8. (Ordering your own xmas gifts can be fun!)
So the question becomes - leather sole or commando sole? I really like the commando sole on the AF53s, but is this shoe too formal for commandos? I have several leather soles and am fine with them.
But, I live in the northeast so the extra traction has been helpful so far this fall/winter.
