Just an fyi - I ordered Alden Indy boots 403 from the NRO sale and had no problems. Never had to check on anything, ordered directly from their website. They sent an email receipt, a UPS notification of shipment next day and I received the boots within the next couple of days. No problems... nice to get 25% off and a Happy 4th of july...
that's great and i'm happy to hear someone has had a good experience with them.
meanwhile, I'm nearly a week out from ordering and they still haven't shipped mine.
I'm pretty much convinced it's because I questioned why I couldn't just pick them up in store instead of having them ship them all of 12 miles to my house.
can someone tell me whether the crepe sole is painted black ?
i ask my cobbler to resole my indys with a crepe sole, he told me that this should be no problem. but he hasnt a black crepe sole, according to him alden painted them black, but i cant believe this. he is a official alden cobbler.
Ask your cobbler to check with his supplier. To me genuine crepe is available in natural and a color referred to as "brack". That's the color Alden used in your photo. It's a blend of black and brown. The larger supply houses carry it.
Nick V, could you replace a single waterlock sole on an Alden suede PTB with a red brick sole? Similarly, do you have the "waterlock" sole in stock if I wanted to resole with a similar material as the original?
