Oh my. All that in one year? @mdubs has become quite an afficionado!

If you had to choose just one pair as your favorite, which would it be?

I don't hear much pro or con about the Alden Welterweight.  It is a casual shoe and seemingly built for walking, but what do people think about it?  Do you see it as okay to wear the Welterweight with a shirt and tie?

 

How would you compare it with the All Weather Walker --I understand the only two differences between the shoes is a different sole and the metal  grommets for the lace holes.  Being that it features a lighter sole, that would seemingly be a good thing.  Lastly, the most important question of all -- as a walking shoe, is it really worth the high price tag or are there better alternatives?

 

Thanks, everyone.  There's a lot of experience and knowledge here ...

Yeah, that @mdubs guy is quite an Alden fan I guess. I wonder if retailers love or hate him.

My favorite of his shoes is not pictured there, but my second favorite would be his Ravello LWBs.

What is all your all's favorite Alden made (you do not have to own it)? Mine would be the Ravello Indy on the Plaza Last.

I believe mdubs was suffering from a manic episode for an entire year. By the time he got help (and by that I mean his wife said "Mike, WTF?), his bank account had dwindled significantly - but he had really nice footwear. fistbump.gif

agree...I am just starting to appreciate the leather suede combo but that one does not hit home for me...however I do love this one below though I am a two tone shoe junkie - I am sure there are many that would consider it a crime on humanity.

Mike needs more boots! ;)

 

But I have a feeling he's been working on that since those pictures were taken...

 

My favorite Alden would be the NST/Tanker boot in Whiskey on Plaza, but wouldn't say no to it on Barrie or Aberdeen either. Second place would be the same boot but in Ravello. A Ravello or Cigar "Indy" on the Plaza (sorry for copying you, Mike) would be up there too.

They're made by the Elves in Middle-Earth. Call Bilbo Baggins he'll hook you up.

About to make my first Alden purchase. Deciding between the Chukka in Dark Brown Kuda, or the Leather Soul CXL Chukka. Someone help me decide!
post #89862 of 122416
^^ If you're ok with lots Of wrinkles then is up to color and sole preference, I like the CXL color better, but hate CXL wrinkles, people here love CXL and I agree that's a very comfortable and resistent leather but after owning two pairs I came to the conclusion that CXL is not for me at least on Aldens, For some reason the Rancourt CXL beefrolls i've seen doesn't wrinkle as bad as Aldens.

Have you seen his feet?  His lasts wouldn't come close to the plaza!  Trubalance in EEEEE might work for his infant son...

Kudu chukka is a stock item

The leather sole CXL are harder to come by

I love my kudu with rubber soles care free and perfect in a pinch for wet days

Quick Leydon sizing question:

I know the consensus for the Leydon Chukkas is TTS +one width up , but what about Leydon std. lined shoes, do you go TTS or still go up in width too?

Is the Leydon narrower than Aberdeen?Aberdeen TTS fits me well, but have never tried Leydon.

Thanks.
