need some help alden bro's..
my father mentioned recently that his daily pair of shoes aren't too comfortable. they're some off brand, cheap black "office acceptable" laceups.. he's always laughing at my new alden pickups, but mentioned that "maybe I'd benefit from a pair"..
does Alden offer anything where style might play second fiddle to comfort? I have access to alden DC so will likely bring him in for a fitting/purchase, just trying to gather some notes..
thanks in advance!
The Trubalance and Modified last are actually part of Alden's orthopedic line.
In addition, I think it would be good for him to remember that Alden's shoes are timeless designs. It just so happens that the current fashion trend is favoring timeless designs, so if he is wearing them, he will be "in style" by default. He could always consider a shoe that has minimal or no broguing to avoid an eye catching shoe if he wants to. However, most of the shoes he would consider have been around for a long time, far longer than any fashion cycle. If a last is comfortable for him, he can rest assured that the shoes (if well cared for) will outlast the fashion trends, and he will just look like he is wearing high quality shoes.
