They also always do it in the inside of the shoes, so it is less noticeable to others.

Hey Mike thanks for the info. It's just aesthetically annoying and the other shoe actually have the welt on the outside but the crack is much less pronounced (pic below).

 

Thinking whether I should return it or not.

Not sure that is permitted under the Alden regime

Leffot also likely doesn't want to field 200 phone calls about availability...

You're probably right.  They seemed a little annoyed when I called them to provide an updated CC number and address for shipping and payment after they sent me an email.  I'm sure they're getting a lot of inquiries and calls...

I was just about to call for the same reason. I don't like to email CC #'s because I'm just cautious about everything in general.

Exactly.  I never send my CC # over email.  I always feel better actually talking to someone so I know who is actually making the charge.

The Tremont last has a chiseled toe-box right?

I wear my black cordovan tanker boots casually. With regards to business casual, black boots work best with grey or navy as opposed to tan pants

I am with one-eighth. I consider it more of a full toe design, the Plaza lasted versions are much more chiseled.

Here is the Tremont.





Here is the Plaza.
