I was under the impression these guys sell out of their stuff quick. I shot them an email, though.

thank you sir. I think #8 looks good with just about everything. king is kingQuote:
thanks man. I dont think im any different from many members here, including yourself; we all enjoy caring for our shells. for me though the novelty of nice, expensive shoes has just about ended. when I first joined it was all about keeping your shoes in pristine condition all of the time but i dont have the time and frankly the patience to keep a collection all mac'ed out. im starting to think that if i conditioned and brushed my shoes just once a year they would still last me a lifetime.post #72471 of 1224162/1/14 at 8:37pmpost #72472 of 1224162/1/14 at 11:27pm
I wear a size 8.5, EE in the barrie last for Alden shoes. Most places do not carry widths wider than E for Aldens, and I have heard that you can order wider sizes directly from Alden. Has anyone had any experience doing so, and how difficult/convenient is it to do so?post #72473 of 1224162/1/14 at 11:40pmpost #72474 of 1224162/2/14 at 1:53ampost #72475 of 1224162/2/14 at 4:34amQuote:
Places like Leffot, will let you get in on their pre-orders. Since the EE is not in their standard run, however, you will have to pay full price up front.post #72476 of 1224162/2/14 at 4:51amQuote:
Wow, that looks fantastic! What did you use to remove the creases in the left shoe?post #72477 of 1224162/2/14 at 5:15amQuote:
You won't be able to order directly from Alden.
Depending on availability at the factory, you can buy the shoes through some stores and they'll have Alden ship them to you direct from factory. Believe this is generally the case for standard models e.g. black and #8 PTB, LWB, LHS, etc... I'm sure The Shoe Mart will do this and I'd suspect the Alden stores do too.post #72478 of 1224162/2/14 at 6:20amQuote:
First, there is much about this sequence that is amazing. From a great pair of chukkas to how a little VSC made them look as good as new. I will be very curious how the saphir works out. When I first joined this forum there were a few discussions on Reno versus VSC and I could not imagine anything better than saphir. Well I ran out of saphir a couple of months ago and picked up what will likely be a lifetime supply of VSC. As someone who has used them both I will say that VSC is definitely better, especially if you're after that 'dipped in liquid glass' look, which I like. Will be interested in your thoughts.post #72479 of 1224162/2/14 at 6:44ampost #72480 of 1224162/2/14 at 7:01am
