nephew,
sorry for the bad news

Interesting, didn't even think about that. Where can I buy the wedge sole? Thanks for the help.

Your cobbler (B Nelson or whoever you use), should be able to provide the sole.  He can probably show you a range of wedge soles to select from.

Moulded Shoe has a plain toe boot on the ripple wedge sole in "wax brown". Not sure what sizes are remaining or if the modified last works for you.

 

Edit: changed the photo, they put up a new shot that does it much more justice

Both of these stories are very unnerving to read. Alden's recrafting service is one of the main reasons I initially latched onto this brand, expecting literally a lifetime of wear out of these shoes. Pity Alden wouldn't take pride in living up to their established rep.

I have had 2 pair shoes recrafted and both came in Green fresh Alden boxes with my size on the outside and trees and bags included.
