Alden retailers I have talked to over the years say that

1) Alden will make them a limited amount of cordovan boots
2) Barrie is the most popular last with customers

As a result, most boots are made in barrie.

I'm afraid the TSM shortwings are going back. I forgot that this is CXL so it will stretch a bit over time making it even looser. I loved the shoes and hate having to return them but at these prices, it has to fit perfectly.

I recently did a breakdown on the Other Forum as to why I felt Alden's Plaza last was the most underrated last amongst the Americano shoemakers.

Let me just say this....If I could sell all my other shoes and have them all built on the Plaza in different designs.....I would......

Crazy about Alden Plaza.....nod%5B1%5D.gif

Those do look interesting. I've never had an NST shoe before although I know they're pretty popular here.

Here are some LWB in #2 Shell. If I'm not mistaken Alden of Carmel had 20 pair of these made for their 20th anniversary. These would fit me but will not doubt go above what I will pay for a pair shoes. My question though is this, how did this seller get 3 pair of these shoes? He's already sold 2 other pair of identical shoes in different sizes.

I considered throwing a bid on these, but the seller is in Hong Kong.

Maiden voyage for my latest CT boot acquisition from Leffot. I think my search for a versatile black casual boot that isn't shaped like a boat has ended. smile.gif

I believe that the other two pair sold for around $1,400 and the other around $1,800.
