I have been told by BB that sales/promotions do not apply to Alden shell, and every description I have read (the fine print) excludes "cordovan shoes" which is also to include things like the Peal & Co. (C&J) boots at $998. Every now and then a guy can get lucky, if, for example, they are left on the website during a sale. I got lucky with the C&J boots (25% off) during the last sale but ultimately returned them anyhow for fit issues. They were removed from the site shortly after I ordered.
