Not sure on the exact suede as they are second hand and were not in the original box. They are supposedly a make up from Alden of Carmel.

Just figured I'd let everyone know.  Sale extends through the end of the month.

14 weeks?

So far I have my eye on some commando sole offerings from AoC.  I am looking at the commando sole versions because I live in the Sierra mountains and deal with 5+ months of snow per year.
 
So…. if you were to pick just one, LWB version

"regular" wing tip?


I had my eye on the AF80 (shortwing) a while back but wasn't sure about going with the commando sole.  By the time I made up my mind, my size was gone. I regret not pulling the trigger for a wet weather shoe.  I'd go with the short wingtip. (but that's partly bc I already have the LWB in color 8)

Yeah... I was told the same thing by another store as well.  I needed 975s (Color 8 LWB) in size 7.5D, and there were none on hand in the store, nor at Alden.  They are doing a run of them as we speak, I guess.

Go with AF80 if your primary use is with a suit.

Are all of the Alden 401 boots the same? I've seen some places call it black calf, and others call it black CXL. What is it?

Is anyone aware of retailers stocking cigar NST, even in other last/sole combinations? TSM does not have my size (9D) in their Barrie offering.

Thank you, and any guidance is well appreciated.
I bought these at Alden DC this past summer.

Taking better photos of my shoes is the only good reason I can think of currently for upgrading my iPhone.

PSA:
For a leather to Dainite sole job, the cost, I am told, is:
"It's $155.00 to convert w/a single sole.
Add $30.00 for a double sole."


For a leather to "commando" sole job, the cost, I am told, is:
"Convert w/a single sole $155.00
With a mid-sole add $30.00"


And BNelson's commando version is found here:

Nick did not ask me to do this, but I figure it will save you, and him, some time on the phone/email.


Can I assume any Alden shoe with crepe or commando could easily be resoled to double leather or water lock double leather ?
