Cimabue,

Glad you like them - Ravello is a great color and photographs do not do them justice.

I just tried ordering some Alden cordovan boots in colour 8 off shoemart and they don't ship internationally?? I played around with the site and it would let me order any other shoes but Aldens. I tried calling 1-800 number and it tells me I can't connect. (I'm in Canada BTW). Anyone know what's up with this.............or where I can order some Alden boots from?? **edit- never mind, Tony the Tailor is my new best friend! Great selection and international shipping.

You beat me to those on eBay didn't you...

I wound up buying the cigar LWBs from the same seller. He had Cigar, Ravello(crepe), and Wiskey all up at the same time new in box for ~$550.

Go Alden!

Yup...same here, I'm sure you saw my posting of the boots I got from Epaulet. Initially, I was reluctant because of the way they photographed but they are awesome!

No, I'm not the guilty party, they came from Alden-of-Carmel a few months ago.

Yes, I do. They are up there as one of my favorites. What would you like to know about them?

I have a pair, they're great (perfect for winter in Chicago). The color is darker than the natural chromexcel I've seen on a number of Shoemart offerings. They're perfect with jeans, maybe a little too light to dress up (commando soul keeps them casual as well).

Second best pair of Aldens (brown chromexcel chukka from LS is No 1) I've bought in some time.

I always wear thick boots socks with my Indys.
Thinking of picking up a pair of Cap Toe boots. Do you guys wear boot socks or just normal dress socks with cap toe boots?

I'm still reading about the different lasts and whatnot. I don't really understand too much about why this or that last is better or worse, other than potential fit of the shoe vs my foot shape. Nor do I understand how people get the same shoe, but on different lasts. But I guess that's how Alden does things.

I really need to go to a local store and check them out. Sherman Brothers is local to me, so I will try them out.

I'm the same size in Van last, Tremont, Aberdeen, and Barrie--all 10.5D. I think it's best to try them on at least once. Good idea to go to Sherman Bros. Here are my 974's in Color 8:

I wish someone would make a wingtip boot in kudu with a commando sole. All this cordovan love is great, but give me more kudu! Alden of Carmel has a now discontinued kudu wingtip boot with a lug sole, but it would be so nice with a commando (and in my size...).

What polish would you recommend for chrome excel indy boots? Dark brown? I'm thinking just for touching up if they get really beat up or from snow/rain.
