I have a pair kudu Indy with lug soles and really like them.  Very durable, hold up well to wet weather and comfortable hide..  I like them a lot due to the  oil resistant sole and hide that holds up well  and will wear well over time in harsh conditions

 

See Ya,

I weirdly really like the PT Calf boot now up on Unionmade, especially the commando sole with winter looming. My only concern is how the tan calf would hold up? Obviously its not your typical "beater" leather, but does anyone have any images of aged dark tan? Or care to comment on how resilient the leather is in general? I know Alden calf does not get a ton of love on here, but I thought I would ask...

 

Thanks!

I own a kudu boot and really like them. They hold up well in inclement weather and are very low maintenance. Highly recommend them, but you can't go wrong with either of those choices.

Edit: Here's a shot of the boots. They're about 3 years old.

God no. That would be ridiculous. I just didn't like how the shoe looked in person compared to the product photos on their website.

There is also quite a bit of calf and other materials remaining. The opera pump is pretty amazing. :-)

Haha, all you need to make your collection complete is the Alden Opera Pump.  I'd pay to see that on your feet!

Wow. That is an OLD quote from me. How much!!!! LoL. If they had a heal, I think that they would make a great women's shoe. LoL.

Went for one, too.  Will be my first Alden, so I hope the fit is right!!

 

I also liked the Byron Grain plain toe boot, but alas two boots is not in the cards for me at the moment.

Underrated stockist, IMO. They seem to listen to customers when it comes to makeups. I was told the Jasper Dover was requested by many.

Guys - much thanks. I preferred the kudu's but it was a really close call.  As Hill indicates, I certainly couldn't go wrong with the AoC commando's. Kudu's add diversity to my collection and though I love commando, crepe is my sole of choice by a slim margin. The pic by Hill definitely sealed it for me. Those are some great looking 3-year old boots. 

 

Again, much thanks.

I want the jasper dover too, the 13.5d had been there for a while and finally gone. Wish I could get my size in the next make up.

Wow! A whiskey make up out of no where. But seems they only have size starting from 9D.
