I don't want to have to explain why I am using an dSLR camera to take pictures of my feet to people... Anyone ever walk in on you striking a shoe pose and photo shoot?

Not yet but I time it right :happy: and use my iphone.  The DSLR might be a bit more challenging to be stealth with

I love mine.  Extremely comfortable and exceeded my expectations.

Steel28, these may be the most comfortable Alden boots I have owned out of the box. They look great, I like this shade of suede. I could see this being a year round wear. One of the better non-cordovan boots or shoes I have owned from Alden.

Rydenfan, those Natty CXL boots are awesome.

Not my item . . . I'm a little surprised that no one has bid on these yet:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-Cigar-Shell-Cordovan-Indy-Boot-Size-9-5D-RARE-/321620387129?ssPageName=ADME:SS:SS:US:3160

 

They appear to be in decent shape, although there's no shot of the soles.  It's a new seller and they would be coming from Hong Kong, so maybe that accounts for the lack of bids.

This thread inspired me to buy 4 pairs of Chup socks, thanks y'all


Made the trek out to Killan's BBQ.  It's a good 30 minute drive outside of Houston (pouring rain today made it seem a bit longer).  My 403s were a solid choice for the weather.  BBQ and boots go quite well together, indeed...

Thanks, looks like a winner.

I've lurked this thread for awhile and, while my Alden stable is nowhere near as impressive as most here, I am rather happy with these newbies:



Cigar shell PTB on waterlock soles

The best part, though, was the following reaction when I dropped them off to have heel plates added by the local shoe repair place:

"Hey, look at those. They look great. What are they?"

"Aldens."

"Aldens? I've always heard about them but never seen them!"

The repair guy then grabbed my shoes, ran back to the workbench, and lifted them up,

"Guys! Check it out! Aldens!"

Apparently this is a rare siting in Denver.

Nice! Makes me think of a recent trip to a local shoe store wearing my cigar LWB and having them tell me that Alden no longer makes shoes in whiskey, ravello or cigar; and never again will?

They sell Aldens too...

Thanks!

My others are a whiskey LWB and a #8 tassel loafer that they used to make for Ben Silver (actually a hand-me-down from my father, that pair started the Alden interest)

Next up would be something in ravello or perhaps a loafer in a less-common suede color (navy, sand, etc.)
