I prefer the tan (antique) trim myself.  It blends with the shoe.  If I ever wear out the sole, this will be my request to Alden.

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!

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.

These are bluchers that showed up on The ShoeMart seconds list over the summer. They definitely fit differently from other Alden lasts, but they work for me and I'm enjoying them.

These are great. I really like the closed heel on the Indy boot.

I agree. A very comfortable and much more true to size last.

regretting not picking up the LWB on J crew during that sale
post #39044 of 87348
just spoke to Brenda at Alden SF. the trim on their Ravello is indeed antique, and not dark, as someone else had suggested... thank god.
post #39045 of 87348
I just heard from Alden SF.

Alden SF's current batch of Ravello LWBs have antique edging.
