Can post pics of the work if there is any interest.

All in all I"m pretty happy with the speed of the repair and their looking into the further issue of the eyelets and addressing that problem as well.  It was only a 3.5 week turnaround.  

Now somebody buy my #8 Cap-toes!  They are languishing in my signature!

did you have alden do this or another company? did they replace the speedhooks with eyelets or just replace the eyelets?
pics please

I sent them to Alden since this was a factory defect.  I had a problem where the sole was separating from the upper between the welt and the upper.  Also I had a problem of the eyelets (not the speed hooks) starting to pull through the leather.  They also replaced the heal of the insole.

Going to have to disagree with you, I rather like whiskeys for their rich caramel hue, a la:

Ridiculous rule - all it does is make the item more expensive for the buyer (which means that less items - used and new - are sold), it isn't a revenue generator.

Sorry Horse. I made sure I changed all of my listings accordingly when I saw the thread. I understand the SF pov, they could be held liable in court if they don't do anything about people who publicly "conspire" to get out of the paypal fee. What sucks is that I almost never get full asking price for goods (and fairly, rarely ever pay it) on B&S, so...

It is what it is. Feel free to om me if you have 9Ds for sale...smile.gif

I am, but they aren't sure about the arrival time, and my Ravello LWB and #4 Atom are not at all similar.

Agree, 100%. I love my whiskey NSTs but don't wear them much. It is nice though, if you have all your other bases covered to be able to reach a grab a pair in that hue.

I have the LS Jumpers, they rule. As far as shoe bags, prob my biggest gripe about Alden...not the bags, but the boxes. I store all my shoes under my bed in their boxes, and the boxes ALWAYS seem too small. Never really noticed until I grabbed a couple of Carminas...but if thats my biggest problem, I'll deal with it.

Hey, I'm sure this has been discussed in the past but with all the recent changes and restrictions Alden has placed in the restoration process, I'm going to ask anyway.

Can alden relast a pair of boots or shoes to go up one width? the two pairs of shoes I'm selling would be perfect if they were a little wider, and then I wouldn't have to sell them smile.gif

I was wondering the same thing about relasting a shoe down one width. I know someone posted here a couple months ago that Alden definitely did that in the past, but just like you said, I'm not sure if anyone has been able to get them to do it recently.
