Could be a good deal for a ex-serviceman missing a limb. Amputees will sometimes need 2 diff. sized shoes. One for the prosthetic and one for the normal foot.

Display wander out of the store??

Sorry if this was already covered--all this talk reminds me to ask whether any stock indies come with a commando sole...
post #41992 of 89935

If by stock Indys you mean the standard Alden catalog, then no.  The catalog Indys are all cork-neo sole.  If someone knows differently, please chime in.

 

***Edit***

 

Let me revise that, the 404 Kudu Indy has a lug sole.  Otherwise, all cork-neo.

I agree. However, the Shoe Mart has continously been selling the Alden Indy Tobacco Chamois with commando sole for a while. Although the Tobacco Chamois edition is not a standard Alden catalog, it has been consistently available unlike other special and hard to find marks/versions.

Also, on a side note, although the Tobacco Chamois edition is not an excat replica of the Indy films boots, like those being made by Alden for Adventurebilt shoe store in Germany, the Tobacco Chamois comes very close to the boots in the Indy films. I own three pairs of the Tobacco Chamois and they are perhaps the most comfortable, reliable, and sturdy Indy boots. I use one pair for my field work in Africa and the other two for daily non-work use.

edit: Let me revise this--as far as I know, CXL only comes in cowhide and horsehide. I should have clarified that in my first post, since I actually own horse CXL stuff.

Yep, but Horween also tans many calf hides as well

I ask because I have a pair of Brixtons in 7.5D that fit perfectly, and I just ordered a pair of LWBs in 7.5D, but I want to be sure of the fit.

I've noticed that the Brixton fits a little more snug than the LWBs. I have a size 8.5 in Brixton that fit nicely but wear an 8 in the longwing. Should point out that I have a narrow foot, though.

You sure it wasn't 14 days?  I just ordered some Wednesday and was told two weeks.

This is awesome.  When I was at Alden DC with my gf a couple weeks ago she mentioned she'd love to work there.

Yea, it definitely looks like someone packed them improperly.  I bought these semi-locally (I had to drive about 2 hours to get to the store).  They fitted me with a couple pairs of beater shoes they had in stock and then ordered these "custom" ones for me from Alden.

 

I guess I'm curious about how often things like this appear.  Would Alden normally replace something like this or would they say that this is normal.  I doubt that I would be able to get a replacement for this shoe, but I'm having a hard time accepting this and wearing them around.

I think you're getting pent up over nothing - there's no structural damage to the shoe, it's not a deep scratch that needs to be boned out, etc. As you wear it, that will go away - ie adjusting to your foot rather than the box it's been in. Throw some large trees in there, brush vigorously, and there's no problem.

If you do end up going the replacement route, you could just return those where ever you got them, now that you know your size order a different pair from Alden SF or other retailer.  It is a stock model, isn't it?  #8PTB?
