Like the sound of these, especially the medallion toe!

then after i wear this boot i wanna town APC boot away i bought it in expensive price and then right now it is on sale so i promise i will never buy APC boot again

 

 

These are my current favorite boots. Ridiculously comfortable and I can't imagine footwear that would pair as nice with dark denim. Best casual boot I own. I have the Ultimate Jumpers on their way from LS right now, but I doubt they'll see as much wear as these do. You made a great choicethumbs-up.gif

This is Alden we are talking about. Quality control and finishing are lacking in many parts of each shoe. It's not really Epaulet's fault that your pair has this issue

IIRC, Mike is in Europe for the week so there may be a delay in getting a response. He's normally pretty good at getting back.

good to know
thanks for the info

stevent, i haven't suggested its epaulet's fault that this pair is poorly constructed; they should however be willing to fix the situation.

** should a fix be warranted

Call Alden.  I suspect they'll help you out.  I stained my conservation boots and sent them back for refinishing.  They fixed them up and sent them back at no charge to me, though I offered to pay.  I received new laces too.  No complaints there.

I prefer the J.Crew boot. Something about the punching just makes that boot pop. Go with an 8D on the Barrie last, I'd say. It doesn't look like the Kirkwood boot is instock in your size, though. 

 

What do you mean by the J.Crew lace being too big?

I'm sure they'll take care of it, but do you really want a brand new boot being recrafted? It seems like it's just going to limit the life of the boot. I think if you're not happy with the quality, you should ask for the boot to be replaced, or you should get a refund. Alden can always sell it through TSM as a factory second, I'd imagine.

About three weeks.  They called me before doing any work.  Alden was very diligent in that regard.  My compliments to the factory staff for their service.

Normally, I would agree with you.  But Alden is  .  .  .  Alden.  I wouldn't be upset if I had to send a new boot back for recrafting.  I would be upset if they didn't do anything to correct the problem.  There's going to be problems with a hand finished shoe (hand sewn or machined by hand).  Some of these will make it through quality control (i.e. Alden's error rate).  They're still nice shoes.

I love my Aldens, they're definitely nice shoes, but I'd be very annoyed to have a shoe that's already been resoled, having just gotten it. Just means I'll have it for less time. Now I can't really notice the original issue, and I don't think it's that bad, I'm basically just speaking in general.

J.Crew's lace is waxed. I own one, actually.
