the consensus is that there is nothing that could be done... : (
this blotch wasn't noticed until i was already walking in them outside, as its only apparent in day light...

Alden can re-dye the shoes. If its really not noticeable, wait until you need to get them re-soled and also request to have the shoes re-dyed to even out the spot. Don't worry, this is something Alden can eventually fix.

I was going to say the same thing, assuming you can get Alden to cooperate. There was video floating around a couple years ago that showed how Alden applied their dye with a swab over the shoe. The dye is very water thin and it's easy to see how it could be applied unevenly. I've got small spots like this on some of my #8 shells as well, and I figure it's just how it is, though the OP has something more severe than I've seen.

Im thinking of putting on heel taps, but am concerned the nails will be difficult to hammer/push in, and they may also not hold.
May use shoe goo to bond the tap to the heel, though thought Id ask here if anyone has done something similar.

you need flush "taps" done by a cobbler. period.

I'm waiting on a special makeup in Ravello which keeps getting delayed, and was told that the reason for the delay is due to the fact that Alden has no Ravello shells in their inventory right now and Horween is not producing any either. I'm assuming all the recent Ravello offerings were made with shell that Alden had on hand prior to the current shortage. So, I wouldn't be surprised if we start to see less and less Ravello in the near future, with the exception of the rumored J Crew that should be coming soon.

A few weeks ago, Kathy at Alden DC told me the same thing about the ravello shortage. Or maybe the term 'shortage' is too generous.

I'd heard that the J Crew Ravello LWB was already released, in store only. (NYC)

I'm stuck on these, I just got the #4's, #8's and Ravello's, do I go for the rainbow in the wingtip or get other models in the remaining colors? These do appear a little red to me also.
