Looks like they are leather lined according to the description. But yeah, they look great huh? I hope they hold up like other Aldens.

What's a good place to procure some v-tips in either calf or cordovan? Is the v-tip largely a Japanese fad? I know leather soul had their run several years ago, but I havent seen anything similar from any other US dealers. I am fond of the v tip look...

If this is what you are looking for, it's on Alden Madison Avenue's webiste. Call for availability:

Moulded Shoe also does what I believe to be a v-tip.

As does Leather Sole on occassion.

Talked to a sales associate at The Shoe Mart to see if they had any interesting shell since I missed on the recent #4. Nothing special in my size, but they had (11 E) Black shell cap toe, #8 chukka and a black PTB at the seconds price. Also had a 11.5 #8 cap toe that was really tempting. $399...nice. Ask for Shawn

I hope was hoping to get some opinions on my next purchase. I'm wanting to get a dark brown Alden wingtip boot with a commando sole. I could get Alden of Carmel's AF84 Dark Brown Calfskin boot, but I've never seen how this leather looks in person after it's been worn. I'd be insterested in a Brown CXL wingtip boot, but all I've seen is Leathersoul's with the regular sole. I already have their Ultimate Jumper in Brown CXL that I'm gonna need to have resoled with a commando sole, part of me wants to find a pair of their CXL wings and have it resoled as well. Would CXL Jumpers and CXL Wings be redundant? One pair would probably go sitting if I had two in the same exact color. How does heir normal brown calf's character stack up against the CXL?

No idea... they may have given it to me because I bought from them last year and they took my name down and promised to call me when the sale came back.  I didn't actually get the call, but who knows??  Sorry I couldn't help...

i really need something with a commando/lugged sole for the snow when i go to sweden next week. the only thing available seems to be the Kudu, but the vibram seems a bit too rugged for me, or the chamois from shoemart. anyone have experience with a chamois indy boot? how do you treat it? durability in the wet?
