I would imagine not. Thank you.

1) No taps
2) Shoe trees, yes (only Aldens I don't use shoe trees in are my brown leather Indy boots)
3) Use the mac break-in method to make sure they fit and break in well
4) Use the max method for shining. Buy Saphir Renovateur and Alden Color 8 Paste Wax

1) I was talking about my classic non-cordovan Indy boots - I view those as more rugged. I'm sure some guys use trees in them
2) It's in the thread - search for "carpet"
3) http://theagatineeyelet.wordpress.com/2010/10/05/the-mac-method/

Indy's are a bit more rugged and structured IMO. That and wedging a shoe tree in there can be a bit more challenging. I put tress in my Chukka boots, but not Indys.

Indeed. I have those shoes in #8 and they're fantastic (style 2160 -- #8 Aberdeen captoe blucher), but the cigar version is on another level.

The cigar version is almost always in stock at Alden SF. I find it is one of my "go to" shoes. But, it is on the Aberdeen last and that means "no go" to many people.

for those who wanted the recent alden leffot shoes, he put up a page showing what sizes are still left.

ravello cap toe boot is still in stock
