Holiday weekend? I emailed him Thursday night and he replied early Friday morning. I called him and placed an order. He called me back almost immediately with shipping details. He did mention they were getting a lot of calls from SF members, and his phone was busy for about 20 minutes before I got through. I ordered a #8 LWB for $525. At 20% off, I'll check there first next time.

Is it a sale at Amore, or are they just 20% cheaper?
post #34295 of 86711

I recently joined the Alden club a couple of months ago and have since purchased a few of their shoes since then. Initialy I got a pair of plain toe bluchers, then a couple of Men's Handsewn Oxford Luxury Comfort Calfskin in brown and black, a pair of Indy Boots, then finally a pair of Books Bros #8 Cordovan Leather Wingtips.

 

Great shoes.

How good are Alden actually? 

 

I have some coupons that I like to spend, the coupon gives me 15% off some Alden shoes and the webshop discount 20% off to non-EU customers, so I get 35% off some Alden shoes.

 

Should I buy the Alden - Navy/Tan Suede Blucher for $405?

Depends on what you mean by "good".

Asking that question in a thread full of Alden fanatics will result in an overwelmingly biased answer.  YES!

 

However, there are also people who are not fans of Alden and prefer to purchase other brands.

 

I would say that with the discount available to you, it is a good opportunity to try them out and decide for yourself.

 

The most frequent complaint is about their inconsistent quality, so if you can tolerate an occasional manufacturing imperfection, I think you will like them.  If that kind of thing is unacceptable to you, it may be best to fill your closet with other shoes.

 

One thing that many people do like about them is their use of Shell Cordovan.  Not many shoe companies use it, and even fewer have the experience with it that Alden does.

 

Come back with Pics if you do end up trying them, and let us know what you think.

I'm not complaining about the final price by any means but does anyone else think it's odd that Amore charges sales tax even if you don't live in New York?

Alden x Leffot #8 Tanker

This is a makeup where the antique sole is really appropriate with color 8

Really?  They're not suppose to do that. Do they charge shipping? If so, you're nearly paying what you would with TSM.

It is the new trend. If they turn it in to NY State then it is perfectly OK.

Mine was $42 tax and $18 shipping. I know states are trying to tax Internet and out of state sales. In Missouri, when a business buys something from an out of state supplier, and there is no sales tax imposed, you must declare it and pay a 4% "use tax". When they first imposed this, it was retroactive, going back three years. That check would have covered a few pair of Aldens. Ouch.

I wore Johnston & Murphy for years. When they took most of their models out of the country, I noted a significant decline in quality and switched to Allen Edmonds. In doing some research on the Internet I came across Alden and based off what I read, I decided to try them. I have four pair with another on the way, all shell cordovan.

In my opinion, they are worth it. I plan on getting three or four more, eventually, maybe more. I still wear some of the older, made in US, J&Ms, and the Allen Edmonds I have, but I prefer Aldens. My only issue with them is all the different lasts they use, which makes it difficult as you have to know your size for each last.

Once you try them, you'll have a hard time buying another brand.
