The commando sole is preferred, but Alden does not like to do the commando sole on the modified last.  So we may have to do a cork-neo sole.  The details will have to be confirmed.  Please PM me if interested or post to the Alden Modified last thread.

I would be interested in these commando sole or not. I'm a big fan of modified last.

The Alden Shop on Madison Ave also sells a similar loafer without the split toe on the Grant...which is one whose arrival in my size I am anxiously waiting on.

I love that split toe loafer. The Grant last looks like it would work really well for me, I just haven't been able to get a pair of shoes on that last. I saw those loafers out in the wild once and I was quite covertous.

I'm new to this forum and trying to decide on my 1st pair of Alden's.  It's between the Color 8 Longwing w/commando sole and the Cigar shell Longwing w/leather sole.  I'm going to be primarily wearing them with jeans and dress casual.  I work from home and rarely need to wear a suit or "dress up".  I don't think I can go wrong with either, but I'm leaning towards the Color 8 because of the commando sole.  I would appreciate anyone's input.  What are your thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Matt

Welcome.
Color 8 is the most versatile of the shell colors, IMO.
The commando sole is more casual then a double leather sole.
The cigar version is more rare in terms of availability.
Generally speaking, cigar is more casual than color 8.
While a color 8 LWB on a double leather sole is nearly always available, that is not the case with a commando sole, making this model somewhat rare.
It's a close call.

I would assume custom, before the recent Alden fad.

At one point they were available at Alden in DC and a few other places. I believe you will see them again.

EDIT - nvm you're right

The lug sole on that Unionmade 404 looks much chunkier compared to Alden's standard commando sole.
