Yes, the online retailer charged me full retail. They didn't say it was a second.

Does anyone have the suede chukkas in snuff? I'm thinking about picking up a pair -- on it's own, I like the snuff color better than sand, but I worry that it's too dark for summer wear and/or not as versatile. Any thoughts?

Namor,

 

In light of the discussions on Alden quality, what do you think so far of the Florsheim by Duckie Brown longwing?

Awesome collection!

I think if Alden raise their price again, I would just do MTO with Vass or C&J for Shell Cordovan, or AE if they start making more boots style in shell cordovan.

There's no question that Alden will raise their prices - they do it every year.

NAMOR, you have a variety of sizes/widths here--it looks lik you have found your way through the Alden last jungle. How is the fit with each of these?

To those with natural chromexcel: do you fellas ever use cleaning and conditioning products on the shoes? I'm wearing my natural chromexcel Indy Oxfords for the 3rd time today and I'm tempted to do so.

Alden recommends Venetian shoe cream - Horween recommends Neats-foot Oil.

I'm tempted to clean my Indys or Indy Oxfords to see how they turn out.

PS does anyone here have Trickers too? If so, how do you like it compared to Aldens, as far as quality and comfort.

I stopped by Leather Soul BH today and fell in love with navy Trickers Keswick. Unfortunately, they didn't have my size, so I just left with a shoe horn.
