They are the very first Alden Fan shoe from Alden of Carmel and made in 1996. Aberdeen last. Whiskey shell body with mahogany shell saddle.
It is a wonderful shoe in so many ways.post #79113 of 1224164/18/14 at 6:21ampost #79114 of 1224164/18/14 at 6:35am
And even though I have a hard time accepting the idea of putting my feet in someone else's shoes, I would have been seriously tempted to buy those if they had been in my size.
An even better idea is bothering Alden of Carmel so much that he works with Alden to resurrect that Fan shoe.post #79115 of 1224164/18/14 at 6:43ampost #79116 of 1224164/18/14 at 6:44ampost #79117 of 1224164/18/14 at 6:50amQuote:Originally Posted by Buckeye Nation

So glad I pulled the trigger on these......thank you to whomever posted the information on the Leathersoul "spring cleaning" sale!
I wasn't sure on the Hampton last, but really like the look and they feel great.....the humus suede is a bit darker than expected but I think these will get a lot of wear.post #79121 of 1224164/18/14 at 7:30amQuote:Originally Posted by tsekh
Ended up ordering both pairs of suede Indy shoes from BB and Haberdash to compare. Received both pairs tonight
BB lists the color as tan and Haberdash lists its pair as milkshake. They are 100% the same color. The BB pair comes with unwaxed tan laces while the other pair comes with waxed white laces.
The BB pair is definitely on Barrie last. The Haberdash one is on trubalance. Overall I like the Haberdash lined version more, especially the lighter color outsole, and I'll return the BB pair.
I have the BB pair, and they are too tapered to be Barrie lasted. I suspect that they are on the Aberdeen last, and I recommend folks size TTS.
Very attractive shoe, although I haven't totally figured out what one wears milkshake suede with, without doing the Southern dandy look. Any advice?post #79122 of 1224164/18/14 at 7:53ampost #79123 of 1224164/18/14 at 7:54amQuote:
CXL is pretty waterproof by nature.
If you really want to, you could use some olbenoefs or similar to make it even more waterproof and seal the welt area with boot wax so that no water can get inside from there, but that is really only necessary if you are going to be standing in puddles.post #79124 of 1224164/18/14 at 8:14amThanQuote:Originally Posted by Bakes11771
