It seems like it would be something they are getting private labeled, made by 3M or someone similar.
I agree, BK. I HIGHLY doubt that Alden makes it. It's probably something from Kiwi or similar.

When I use it, it smells like something familiar but I can't quite place it.

Smells like Armor All to me.

Love these. May try to score a pair.

I need those grey pants I been eyeing so I can more shoe colors like this.

That might be it.

I will warn you that the Alden Madison version doesn't have the brass eyelets - they are hidden. I returned them because, personally, I like MrDV's version better. MrDV, where did you get these from?

I'm wearing mine, from Leffot today!

Looking good guys!  I'm going to have to jump on these down the road.  Carmina has a similar LWB which I also like...

So lets say I wanted to overpay for a pair of 9.5D or 10D Cigar boots - Jumpers, Cap Toe, Indy, whatever I could find.  Where would I look?  This might be a total newbie question, but I don't see anything on ebay or here.  Is this just that rare that they rarely get listed and when they do they disappear?

Possibly http://www.fransboonestore.com/

But, you are asking a lot.

Cigar is hard to come by "at the drop of a hat".

However, if you do not prefer the variation, there is a simple way to even-out the light colored (almost pink) shade where color 8 shoes crease.
1) Wipe down with warm, damp cloth.
2) Apply very thin layer of color 8 paste wax to area and let sit for a couple of minutes.
3) Buff with soft cloth.
4) Apply another very thin layer of black paste wax to the area and let sit for a couple of minutes.
5)Buff with soft cloth and brush.

I have NOT done this to any of my color 8 shoes, but a local Alden dealer does this for customers who complain about the creasing and discoloration that comes with the creasing.  They get good results and their customers come back for more shell!

Thanks for the info. I'm not so concerned where I'll try and do this evening out but I'll keep it in mind in case it continues to bother me.

Who has the Cigar Chukka made up? Is that from ShoeMart? If so is it a style they replenish ever 6 years or so?

There are some available in Germany. Might not be so much more expensive if you don't get hit with taxes and fees.

It says they're in E width, but I'm not sure how Germany measures their widths, it might actually be D? (Since there are also EE available, wouldn't make sense to me to only have E and EE widths.)
