Coincidentally, I have the same Alden Balmoral. I actually much prefer Balmorals over Bluchers, but find that with Aldens I somehow always end up buying Bluchers. I do apparently have 3 pairs of Alden Balmorals. Semi-Brogue Cap Toe on Plaza in Black Shell, Straight Tip in Cigar, and Perf Tip in Color 8.

You are absolutely correct in that the two models function very differently.  Enjoy your alt wein my friend; you wear them quite well!

Much thanks!

I loved my Alfred Sargents but Aldens Barrie and TruBalance lasts seem a much better fit for my feet so I'd rather have Aldens for my semi-casual needs. I have kept 4 pairs of dress shoes that aren't Alden - brown Churchs, black C&J, walnut/tan AS and a black captoe AS. Come to think of it, I can't remember seeing an Alden Balmoral, at least not posted in here anyways. Hmmm . . . 

 

I need to wear these more often this spring...
