Namor: I also own two pairs of Alden Tobacco Chamois boots. I used them for my field work. Please, what do you use to clean and protect the boots? When I purchased my boots recently, I tried to buy the Allen Edmonds chamois oil cream but they do not make them anymore. Russell's Moccasins sells chamois oil for boots but I am not sure whether that will be good for the Aldens. Any suggestions or recommendations will be greatly appreciated! I bought the boots from The Shoe Mart. Thank you! Sincerely, EXPLORER

Uncle, just curious if you have shared your break in method with three wearings before? I haven't seen it since I subscribed to this thread. Interested in your process.

I apologize in advance for the darkness and quality of the pictures.  These are Alden for Leffot, indys on the trubalance last with the commando sole, these are actually my first of pair of Aldens so I thought I would share. Hopefully they will be perfect for business casual and jeans during the winter and terrible weather which is sure to ensue in the next couple of months here in Iowa.

I have a pair for sale as well. I probably should put it in my signature.

Modified last, of course, and listed as available in limited sizes, but good looking and unusual.

 

 

I could never bring myself to buy cap toe anything, milkmans I would buy in half a second

Leffot does a similar whiskey/black grain saddle, but they put it on a crepe sole, which is not ideal for that model IMO, otherwise I would have picked it up long ago

Don't know, but maybe if enough people here would keep emailing them they will start producing again

I believe Uncle's break in method is for assessing fit, and it involves wearing the shoes on 3 separate days indoors on carpet for an hour (each time) before making a decision about the fit.

and also so the toe of the sole doesn't wear excessively while the shoes are still stiff!

Congrats on your Indy boot purchase!  Your first Aldens and probably the beginning of a continuing pleasurable addictive journey.

I'm looking for shell cordovan Indys - either #8 or (preferrably) cigar or Ravello.  Are they in stock anywhere?

Looks like the JCREW deal is dead.
