I believe they are oak bark tanned leather.

Allegedly Alden uses Rendenbach soles when they recraft but some other brand of similar grade soles when new.

I haven't noticed any difference in wear between Alden/C&J soles.

It is my understanding that Alden uses JR soles with their shell models when new.

They only sell stuff from the stock catalog.  They have calf business dress stuff in stock, but can order the others.

$500 is a great deal, particularly in light of the price increase.

Does Alden DC have a website or is it a phone only affair?  I am interested in these boots.  Is this something they normally stock?

Does anyone stay TTS? How does it compare to the BB snap?

nephew,
from my experience i would go with your plaza size

Thanks Renton. I also wear Allen Edmonds last #8 in 8.5 EEE, and LL Bean boots in 8.5 Wide, guess I'm between sizes, hence my hesitation. I am not going to wear them with thick socks though -- New York City winters are not cold enough -- so I guess I'll just go with my normal size.
