How do you all go about replacing the rubber heel on your indy boots? Do you just take them to a cobbler, or do you acquire an Alden heel first and bring that with you? If you acquire one first, where do you get it from? Sorry if this has been answered before. I searched the forum and found others asking, but no one answering...

 

Thanks!

Hi, I recall reading on this thread that Alden will send you a replacement toplift if you call and ask.  I think it was about $5 per.  I'm not sure if they still offer this.  Otherwise, any reputable cobbler will have a decent replacement on hand.

 

Hope this answers your question.

This isn't an Alden contribution exactly (and I only have the snuff suede chukka so no shell for me ... yet), but wanted to share this here given everyone's affinity for shell cordovan. I just received a Horween shell shoe horn. I like it because it serves it's purpose really well being a slick surface and one that can show patina over time, and also just a bit more unusual than Abbeyhorn:





In trying it out this morning, it was impressively slick and also the thick portion is more comfortable to fit the foot in the shoe (im used to a narrow AE freebie horn and only now do I see its limitations).

A bit of an excessive luxury but I can see this just making me smile as I get ready every morning.

So there are 10 people in line for the cigar boots in my size, as I had kind of expected. I elected to get on the Ravello captoe boot wait list instead. We'll see how it goes.

Yes, these lists are deep and serious. For many members, this is not a game. Crazy Alden-heads!
