Well I stand corrected in that case. They are supremely comfortable. I just picked mine up and I am obsessed with them. Huge fan!

We are definitely seeing a trend with the 975! How about some other lists? Or can you not bear to think of a world that is so horrible that would not allow you to keep more than three pairs of Aldens!
So if a 975 is about $650, what if we put a devlish twist on it and said "Let's say you were only allowed to have a shoe collection valued at $2000 total (excluding sneakers/work out shoes)?"
How many Aldens would you end up having?
Pitt Boot Color 8.Cigar - $685
LWB Color 8 antique - $685
403 chromexcel - $485
$145 left in my pocket.
Interesting. Good to know of a good SE MI cobbler, too. Personally, I would have let him polished them; I bet they'd come out amazing. At least throw some conditioner and Kiwi on them to give them some color, maybe?
0 or 1. I'm fond of the $400 #8 PTB's seconds I got off TSM.
Certainly not a long-wing. The only value-proposition to Alden is in their shell shoes, and a LWT has to be the worst platform to showcase shell IMO.
