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.

So ...............

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 ?

the only people i've heard refer to it at CXL are Epaulet. everyone else says calf. it might be sourced from Horween, but it's not CXL.

I wonder if Epaulet made a mistake or if it's a different makeup. I didn't think think Horween did any calf, do they?

i have no idea. i've read tons of horween posts on their blog and on their website that outline all their different leathers, and there are many. that being said, the 401 that Epaulet/Unionmade/TSM has, looks very different than the "black calf indy" that alden of carmel has. so i'm sure there are many factors which we're just unaware of.
