I don't know if it's the right place to ask questions about Alden, but I have just inherited a pair of them, and since they don't fit me, I would like to know whether they are worth some money or not.
As you may have understood, I'm a total newbie, so any help would be appreciated.
They are a dark burgundy-maroon-brown color, and come in size 10 1/2 B/D. They are definitely well worn, but they've been well looked.
I attach some pictures here; does anyone knows the style, and if they are valuable or just a worn pair of shoes worth nothing?
Thanks in advance!
I think that if you listed them for $150, they would take a while to sell. If you listed them for $50, they would sell pretty quick. Its not at all a bad model, just not as sought after as others. Alden restoration could do a lot for them at the cost of $150 or $165 (whatever it is lately), however, I don't think you would get that investment back out of them in a resale, so probably best to sell them as is.
That is my take on it. Nobody can know for sure. Only one way to find out.post #82938 of 1224165/26/14 at 2:47pmpost #82939 of 1224165/26/14 at 6:20pmpost #82940 of 1224165/26/14 at 6:49pmpost #82941 of 1224165/26/14 at 7:29pmpost #82942 of 1224165/26/14 at 7:31pmQuote:

I'm far from an expert but based on the numbering (934) these appear to be the cordovan plain toe bal from Alden of Madison. The cordovan market is pretty hot right now and what you have is a preferred style. The uppers appear to be in good shape but the soles could use some work. I would guess that as-is you could easily get a couple of hundred for those. At least that's what I would pay if they were my size.
Bottom line is that those are pretty nice. Too bad they are not your size.
A year ago I sold a pair of these in almost identical condition for $150 after finding them at a thrift shop.post #82944 of 1224165/27/14 at 6:38ampost #82945 of 1224165/27/14 at 6:40ampost #82946 of 1224165/27/14 at 6:42ampost #82947 of 1224165/27/14 at 6:45ampost #82948 of 1224165/27/14 at 7:14ampost #82949 of 1224165/27/14 at 7:15amQuote:
My #8 LWBs are noticeably much darker than my burgundy Leeds ... the eggplant glazing on the #8 makes a huge difference.post #82950 of 1224165/27/14 at 7:21am
