The BB PTB are lined. Tassels HKG is obviously the only source.
Yep, I never had boot hurt my feet more. They were comfortable when I first wore them but after long walks or hikes they killed my feet. And my feet would hurt for days after. I had wore them about 30-40 times - I finally sold them on E-Bay. But yours may still break in ok - give them a little more time.
Question for all the Canadian Alden wearers....
I'm in Toronto and didn't have any luck finding a pair of Indy's so I resorted to ordering them from the States (Need Supply to be correct). Found out today that I'm going to get dinged for $74 in duty when they are delivered today. I'm no expert but since Alden boots are manufactured in the States doesn't that apply under NAFTA as a "duty-free" item? I can understand if you're a border guard and it isn't noted that the shoes are made in the States thus charging duty on the value, just wondering about everyone's experience and if I should email Need Supply.
