Whoever is spec'ing out Unionmade Aldens has an unhealthy obsession with that loden green and crepe soles.

They really do, and they've screwed up some really good makeups in the process.

Crepe is death slippery on wet smooth concrete. Worse than leather soles.
It doesn't seem any worse than leather on snow though.

I think they can get black and color 8,  but you ought to call and find out.

Yup, I've been wanting to get in on those Rough Roy's. I think I would have already pulled the trigger with a commando sole.

I have one pair with crepe soles, the LS Natty CXL Tanker.  I like it.  It's light weight and quiet.  Off the top of my head, I want to say that the crepe sole was used for desert combat boots.  So, I wouldn't expect it to be robust in snow and ice conditions (I have not tried it myself).  On the flip side, I wear my Alden boots in the spring/summer.  So, the crepe sole works very well for me.

Pretty much what prompted my question.  Wore my J&M Conley Short Wings and was wishing they were Alden Shell's rolleyes.gif

How did you get that price? Website showing $651 before discount. For those who have done so, did you just call and ask for the discount?

how does Van last fit compared to Trubalance and Barrie?

maybe i'm being a needy customer but i'm a bit irked at the lack of service from Alden of SF. I ordered the Ravello LWB on Saturday evening. After somebody suggesting they came with dark trim, I e-mailed them to ask about the trim. I asked if they could send a picture. The response I got was "It's antique trim. I can't send a picture." Okay? You don't have a smartphone? Whatever, fine. I thanked them for verifying and told them no picture was necessary. I informed them I would be leaving for Sweden in 10 days and wanted to know when I could expect them to ship. The response was: "You'll receive a confirmation sometime later today." Later today I received an e-mail from "UPS Quantum View," the automated UPS shipping notification. No e-mail from Alden of SF. No "Thank you for your order." No "Don't worry, we'll take care of it." It must be nice to sell a product that will sell out regardless of how you treat your customers. Would I shop there again? Sure, if they had something I really wanted... but if it came down to purchasing from somewhere else over them, I wouldn't even have to think twice about purchasing somewhere else. I just hope there is nothing wrong with them, I loathe to imagine engaging in any customer service issue with them. /end rant
