No reasonable amount of money would have me buy that shoe. It'd have to be like $50. It's pretty damned bad.

Please take a look at the pictures attached.  I was looking over the boot and there is a slight flaw on one side of the boot.  I don’t think you would see it under pants but if you are interested in purchasing I can off you $100 off on the order.

 

If you wish to buy please provide me the following information.

 

Name on credit card

Billing/Shipping address

Phone number

Credit card number including expiration date and security code

 

Domestic shipping $30/ International shipping is $75.

 

I will be off Sunday-Tuesday and back in the store on Wednesday.  If you email me after closing today I will get back to you on Wednesday when I return.

Just bought a pair of suedes.  Is there anything I should do to safeguard/treat the uppers prior to wear?  Anything to do, or just wear them and spot treat as needed?


Thanks!

Chanakit, pretty much everyone thinks you should find another pair. I agree.

Haha ok thank you everybody

Send an email with photos to Alden to see if they are willing to replace the shoe for you. If yes, buy it from them and then mail it to Alden. These boots shouldn't have left the factory to start with.

Good move. You could buy lightly used for a better price and in better shape. Also consider the seconds list.

I agree with this. You will spend a lot of money on a pair of boots and you will not be happy with it. If you are strapped for cash check this forums buy and sell, eBay and the seconds list.

Depending on your shoe size you could try Tom Ausin Shoes. They had some REALLY good deals recently but have probably been mined heavily, but it is worth a call.

Also, some of those shoes may be on eBay for good prices. smile.gif Good luck.

Thanks!

Use suede protector spray. Various companies carry it, including AE. I use it, and it has served me well.

i do wonder if that spot could be flattened out somehow...

People seem to think Saphir Reno is the bees knees but as i said above, it's mostly hype and marketing.

Saphir is In fact worse in most respects-ie., how well it shines shell, what it costs, and where it's made.

The only thing that it may be better with is the way it smells to some because Saphir adds perfume.

Venetian Shoe Cream has an American made heritage much like Alden and Horween themselves, which is important to me, others may not care. It provides a better shine on shell and better cost value if you buy a large can. Horween uses it themselves.

Does this mean Saphir is not a good product? No. One of them doesn't have to be bad for the other to be good.

I'm so happy with Venetian and Horween is too, so it seems like a no brainer to me.

I also use the AE suede protector spray. I even use it on my white suede saddle's and it has served me well. I still have sports but that is the point of the white suede anyway.

I wonder that too and would likely try it but if it is someone's first purchase I would rather save them the hassle.
