Thanks for the info. I rarely see these orthopedic Alden models. I wish you comfort and good health wearing them smile.gif

I will say that I have a few old pairs of Hyde bowling shoes from their defunct "Athletics" street line that are insanely comfortable and look very much like these Alden shoes. I usually wear them with jeans.

Those are a heck of a lot better looking in suede than leather. Like a different shoe.

Has anyone heard news of the Shoemart #4 Captoe boot? I was able to get in on the pre-order a few months back for them. I called earlier today and the customer service person said they were likely "in production". Does anyone know how long it takes for an item in production to be completed?

Wasn't delivery scheduled for July? That's what they told me for both boots, although wingtips showed up early. I really wish I preordered the captoe as well, #4 is so rich

I want to see a #4 LWB. I'd jump all over that. Has it ever been done?

Great shoes. The bar lacing add's a lot to the look. Everything looks really clean?

There are conflicting stories out there about the #4 cap toe boot....

Back in march when I put my name down, I remember being told that the Captoe boots were 4-5 weeks away and the #4 wingtip boot was 4-5 months away.

So....the #4 wingtip boot arrived in May....so I called about the #4 captoe when the #4 wingtip came in. I was told that Alden told shoemart that the captoe boot was in production and would be ready soon.

I called again this week and was told the order was just sent to Alden on May 26th, so figure 8-12 months from there.

I honestly dont know what or who to believe....I need to call back and speak to Ed.

They could both be right if there is a second order?

Does anyone else think that a navy suede Indy with red brick sole would look killer?

Very nice. I recently acquired the Cigar Shell NSTs on the Barrie Last from Shoemart. I have worn them but once; however, they are scheduled for a second voyage tomorrow.

Don't know if a LWB in Color 4 has been done, but I was lucky enough to stumble upon a NOS Vintage Hanover Color 4 ptb a few months back. It's a beautiful shoe and fits nicely in the color spectrum between my ravello ptb's and cigar chukkas. I inquired of the Color 4 wingtip boot earlier this week when phoning Shoemart - I was told an order was placed 5/26/12 and they have no idea when, if ever, another order will be placed?
