Pardon my ignorance, but Alden makes a Ravello shade in calf leather as well?

Also see these burnished tan DOVERS by Leffot - surprised I haven't seen more mention of them before:

Actually, I was thinking of their Walnut Calf... See the picture here from TheShoeMart of the Walnut Calf Tassel...

The Dark Tan is probably closer to Whiskey than Ravello at this point... :-) The Walnut Color would pass as a nice shade of Ravello.

I hope that upcoming batch of cigars from DC is close to these.

I like these LWB's. I decided I wanted the sage nubucks from Leffot to late.

Gotta give Unionmade some love here.  A while back I posted that I got Natural CXL boots from them with no shoe bags. When I emailed, they said that sometimes Alden doesn't send bags with all their shoes, but they had an extra lying around and they sent them out to me.

 

Anyways, just wanted to share about the good customer service. I will be purchasing from them again in the future!

...and now for something completely different: Alden is known for its triple-strength steel shanks. Would you say their shoes are more comfortable than others after a day of heavy walking?

I have a pair of AE dalton boots, which doesnt have the steel shank. I like Wearing Alden so much more. The shank gives the boots a very soild feeling and I love it.

I forgot to post this, but they did the same for me to. Adam took care of me on that deal for sure. Cheers to unionmade.

These green shoes from Alden would look good with Barbour olive jackets (Bedale, Beaufort, Liddesdale) this season

Have not owned Alden boots for that long however have done a several multi mile walks in the CXL indies(cork), NST boot(commando), & J Crew shell Captoe(leather sole) and my other boots are AE(10), Vass(1), Viberg(2)...out of all of them the AE in all soles is most comfortable to me on longer walks. My guess is that the AE are lighter and more importantly comes in tons of widths and goes up to big sizes without having to jump through hoops to get. So I guess fit is really the key factor.

 

I am loving the Alden's I have though and wish it was not a pain in the arss to get them in my size in the special makeups from the retailers. Looking forward to adding more!
