Can inquire when and where you purchased those beauties.











Should I be concerned with the creasing so close to the base of the lasing?  I feel like they fit well, but I've never seen any of my shells crease in this spot.

I am going to place a call. Hey, I would not be concerned about the creasing, but -and I am not trying to rain on your parade because this is exactly how I felt over some whiskey long wings- the gap at the back in pic four looks like it might be a bit much. If they feel large they might be.


Didn't even notice that.  I'll have to check that out again.  That's pretty perceptive...  Thanks!

But remember, shoes fit each of us differently. A large gap at the back, often, speaks to poor fit. Uncle Mac's advice on wearing on carpet, and really sessing fit, is way smart. Personally, I learned the hard way.

got a link?

Thanks shaunW for the heads up, saw plenty I want, none in my size sadly.

Just go to the alden section where you can 'view all' and sort the results from 'Price: Lowest to Highest' and you'll have like 10 pages of seconds where they'll say "Sale" in red with x% off.

That's how I was able to find it last year, however being able to add a pair to your cart and even ordering them might not mean that they have it in stock since sometimes their inventory isn't always up to date (but with so many shoes I can understand that)

The link may or may not work

How do AE's fit compared to clarks desert boots? I'm considering picking up some park avenue seconds in black. I just need to get a black oxford cap for upcoming school events and interviews. Maybe ill buy a lesser brand for my first pair but just would like to know how to size.

This can also be normal if you have flat feet - as the arch collapses the foot will move forward.

Before you order the deer bonz, try using reno and the back of a metal spoon.

Check out theshoemart website. They have everything listed this evening including all the seconds listings. Definitely a few gems for those with smaller and larger feet and odd sizes in general. I only wish the color #4 ptb with dover pattern was my size.....sigh! I can't find anything that works for me but i figured maybe someone can snag something cool.
Don't wait by morning the website will be back to normal.

Ughhh. My size and someone grabbed it while I was checking out. Crap.

Here is an interesting makeup I had not noticed before:

 

http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens_chukka_boot_calf_skin_leather_sole_black/pvc-ald-mxs-13770_ald_m_chukka_boot_calf_skin_leather_sole.html

 

 

 I edited this because I can't read. It's black calf and I put shell at first. But the edge trim is interesting. And a CXL option. 

 

 What last does this look like?

Agreed. Need to be careful not to extract universalities from shoe threads. Mac's break-in method is one that will hold true, however.
