I had it sent back to Alden and they repaired it.

 

The post-repairs were sloppy IMHO (stitching wasn't centered all around - check out the pic) but I didn't think too much. I guess I should have seen this coming:

 

cmp3.10.3.1Lq3 0xad6b4f35

 

 

Both times, during winter too. I guess this will give me an excuse to buy new boots for fall/winter as these boots will be sent back again.. ..

 

What a waste of time. 

 

Sorry to see those! Bit of a bummer!

I had the same issue with my indys from J. Crew. They took them back (after a year and bunch of wears). They sent me another pair with a bunch of loose grain creasing, which I wore a few times and got sick of looking at and sent back. They finally sent me a pair which I am happy with. When my first pair had the same issue as yours, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. I was bummed because that pair had the best leather consistency and least creasing of the three. I don't believe the above is an issue as much as it is aesthetically unappealing. Perhaps try pushing the welt back a bit? I wish I had toyed a bit more with mine.

3 - I'm waiting for cigar and ravello ct boots from my best friend Kathy and the cost of Anatomica pt with customs fees = both pairs

I think I'm still making mistake not purchasing these from Anatomica..

nephew, your decision is correct in not making the purchase

I am curious what the average age is in here if anyone feels like divulging. I am currently 31 and got my first Alden early this year, twas the 403 Indy and I am actually wearing them today.

 

Since then during the year I have added:

NATCXLPTB

Whiskey LHS

Ravello LWB

Snuff Suede Chukka

Whiskey PTB (arriving tomorrow!)

 

 

Top 5 Alden Want List (mostly rotating as I see new stuff posted here lol):

Cigar Cap toe boot

Leffot Dover

Cigar PTB

NATCXLNST boot

Cigar LWB

First pair of Alden's were at 24. Five years later and I'm up to a baker's dozen (all Shell).

Thanks Uncle, decided to pull the trigger. I think this is one chance in a lifetime to get banana Modified last and PT boot in Ravello shell.
