Thanks...I plan on visiting my local (Washington DC) Alden store to see what they have to offer. At the very least, figure out my size since this will be my first Alden shoe purchase. Here's to hoping that they have a good selection. Do Alden shoes fit uniformly across the board? Just curious because I keep hearing about shoes with different lasts, etc.

Now that is funny.

Anybody know what Alden is charging for a resole these days? How about turnaround time? I know I could call them, but they never answer their phone and I'm often not able to take a call back so it makes it tough.

$145.

I'm was curious because so many of you are ordering shoes from Leather Soles, ShoeMart and Alden of Carmel, etc.

From AofC on the leydon last:

Gorgeous boot, does this style come in a regular shoe?

I need a nice pair of black wingtips to wear with suits?
Happy Birthday to you. Great gift!

I love that shoe. Do those fit properly? Maybe a little big on the right foot?

Yeah I saw them but I just don't like the look of the crepe sole. If it wasn't for that I would have already placed my order.

I really love these. First, they don't have the typical boxy looking moc toe, there is no stitching and they actually look more tailored or sleek. Second, the sole and heel treatment is far different. They are still heavy but sleek. The description of the shoe says the sole and heel is neoprene and cork, but it's a lot different than the Indy as can be seen. Actually has the appearance of an oiled leather.



I'm really pleased I got these before they were gone and hope Alden does more in this pattern.

Please forgive the poor photo skills.

If anyone has these in a 10D, and need to unload them, I'll take them. These are terrific boots..

Hello Tom,

I heard on the forums that Alden will no longer size down a width when they recraft a shoe. Can you confirm this?

Can anyone point me to a retailer that has a cigar boot with commando sole for sale? It can be any type of boot, but just looking for that cigar goodness with a winter sole. Tried the usual places but have come up empty. Or if you have one for sale let me know (US11-11.5).

Alden DC has some cigar captoe boots on the Grant last with the commando sole. Beautiful boots.

Is there anyone following this thread who's an employee at Alden? It'd be really cool to hear from someone making these great shoes and boots. I think they'd enjoy rockstar status around here.
