HaHa. Even then it requires careful planning. Stores frequently have more considerations to keep in mind. I also don't know how many new designs they are allowed to submit a year. Also Art has to approve all designs before they go into production.

Never hurts to try.

If you're interested in group MTOs for brand new designs, I'm sorry to say but Alden is not the brand for you. Enjoy the stock models, and the special makeups that certain retailers offer, but don't expect to get a bunch of guys together in order to convince Alden to make a new design. Case in point, the Thor boot that we tried to get Alden DC to make a couple years ago. That one had a ton of interest (maybe too much) and it couldn't get made.

I saw an Alt Wien boot in black shell, so I reached out to the retailer and suggested the color 8 / Antique makeup. Curious to see if they'd consider it.

I've learned that "no," doesn't always mean no; it sometimes means "not right now, but ask again later or come up with a good argument."

Carry on.

I know there was an MTO list from about 7/2103 with 8-9 people interested. Is this a boot anyone would like to see happen?

I would definitely be interested - BUT don't hold your breath. I helped set up 3 Group MTOs for unique Alden makeups through Epaulet and we are still waiting going on 3 years.

But more power to you if you can get it done.

I believe that was a Leffot makeup. Need Supply has a version on crepe sole and Barrie last.

Morning sun and color 8 are an awesome combination.

Thanks. Leffot was in 2013 and Crepe sole is a deal breaker. Can Neocork be changed by B Nelson or others to commando?

I don't see why not.

I don't have first hand experience, but from what I've heard, B Nelson does not have the same sole that Alden uses.  However, I understand that Moulded Shoe can resole with OEM commando.

post #81494 of 122416
I assumed the OP meant Commando-esque. It sounded like a more general question of whether or not the neo-cork can be re-soled.

That is good to know about Moulded.
