These are very nice. Awesome color.

Enjoy wearing them for many years.

Got my Cigar Indy boots from J. Gilbert. A couple concerns though: 1) One of the leather heel pads is missing, and 2) the one heel pad is labeled incorrectly. See pictures. What should I do about the missing heal pad? Sorry for the crappy pics, not a lot of natural light on a rainy day.

Puzzling?

If the boots are otherwise fine, email them and request new heel pads. Then just superglue them down.

The elusive ravello short wing in the wild. This makes me weep, just a little.

Maybe not superglue but adhesive cement (you can pick them up at a shoe repair store). Also, in addition to the sock liner, there is a foam that also goes under the sock liner.

Thanks for the tip! I know it doesn't really matter but you think I'd be able to get a sock liner that says J. Gilbert? I like that all my Aldens say where they came from.

I cannot be certain but I am sure if the distributor (e.g., J. Gilbert) requested the branded sock liner from Alden, they could get a couple. I guess it will just take time. I guess the convenient alternative of just picking up standard leather sock liners from a cobbler is out of the question. satisfied.gif

Enjoy the boots!

Enjoy the boots!

I e-mail Yenni at J. Gilbert who has been absolutely incredible through the whole pre-order and waiting process. If nothing happens, I'll still be thrilled with my boots and have a cobbler install the missing liner and sharpie on J. Gilbert. wink.gif

On that note; if one were to resole a factory crepe sole with a leather sole using a third party, then sent the shoes to Alden restoration, would it be resoled with a leather sole or crepe sole?

 

An SA at Alden SF told me they'll resole with whatever is on the shoe at the time of restoration.

Just got these back yesterday. A fine job, sorry for the crappy light and dirty iPhone lens:

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, Nick V. went above and beyond in attending to my many questions. What a stand-up guy and a true gentleman.
