Alden DC has a navy CXL LWB with double waterlock sole and antiqued edge trim scheduled for spring delivery.

I was curious as to what navy cxl looks like... it's quite nice as a moc (from Oak St Bootmakers):

 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

With cordovan becoming harder to get, looks like retailers are experimenting with suede, calf and cxl a bit more

You read my mind. If you notice, Shoe Mart now has many models in calf that appear to be replicating the same models/colors as their exotic shell cousins.

^I think we also have to consider the pricing on shell these days. It's pretty expensive, even for #8/black. Considering Alden's current popularity, these non-shell models likely go a long way to meeting the demand with slightly less sticker shock.

You know what the Leathersoul sale for Alden, makes me understand...now more than ever, what a freaking markup there is on these shoes.. How you cann all of a sudden sell $515.00 shoes for $195.00. So it cost maybe $75.00 to $100.00 to make the shoes. maybe $150.00 if cordovan.

You want sticker shock, you should have seen my face when Anatomica quoted me a price for a Modified last make up in shell.

I'm sure the dealer cost is higher than that, probably ~$250-$260
