Pebble Grain Chukka with Commando Sole
Someone out there is enjoying the 9D Ravello that I gave up. I actually find myself wearing the Alden Chukka models more than the boots.

Well if they won't do it for you I don't think they would do it for anyone. The Aberdeen is a tough last for a slip on. I know you can get shell loafers on the Grant and I may give them a try.

It's funny how everyone's feet are different, my tassel loafers (10E) in Aberdeen are my best fitting Alden shoes. I'd like Alden to produce the LSH on the Aberdeen last as I have failed so far in attempting to wear the LSH in Van.

Call the Alden Store on Madison Avenue in NYC, they may have it.

I like the pebble grain. Don't have anything in it, but feel as if I will someday. Those look like very practical chukkas, that are also very good looking. Enjoy wearing them.

If you like pebble grain, I recommend the English captoe boots on dainite soles made by a few manufacturers (Crockett and Jones, Alfred Sargent, etc). Something you won't easily get from Alden

They had 3 Alden models that came in and they should all be in the website soon: Ravello Cap toe, Pebble Grain Chukka and #8 Wing tip boots on crepe sole (very nice!).

I do have these on order from Moulded Shoe:



Should they ever come in, I think that will have my pebble grain boot needs taken care of. I also have an MTO from another shoemaker in the works that will combine pebble and shell. We'll see which I get first.

Appreciate the tip on other makers' pebble grain options, though. I don't really know anything about C&J or AS, so it's good to hear they offer some nice makeups along these lines.

Looks very similar to the Alden for J crew pebble grain cap toes...
post #38160 of 89940
They are indeed very similar. These are on the Modified last, which is what appeals to me. I also like the closed heal on the model from Moulded. Of course, the J Crew version has the advantage of a commando sole. Apparently they don't do that for the Modified last.
