Can anyone help out a forumite with some info for an Alden fan in the UK? Has anyone ordered a pair of Alden's from Leffot and had them sent by them to the UK? I know it says they will not ship internationally but am desperate to get myself a pair of the 
Indy tan suede with red micro soles release. 

Cheers

Which is fine by me, nubuck has no place in a hunting or hiking boot IMO. Although the CXL still has its nap I don't think suede would over time. For suede I use Bickmore Gard More. It does not darken the suede at all and contains no silicone if that is what your after. It works very well.


Thanks for your reply and tip of the Bickmore Gard. I wasn't aware of it.

I mainly got that idea since the roughout service boots (Boondockers) worn in the war were nearly always dubbed and some members have done so with good results.

But I couldn't remember anyone doing it with the Alden 'service boots'.

Why haven't you worn those #4s yet?

Alden for BB #8 PTB. I love the fit of this last, definitely better than the barrie (for me).

These just showed up on eBay:

 

 

Alden x Leffot day tripper boots shell cordovan ravello size 10.5 D / 10 1/2 D
Buy It Now US $699.00
 
 
The listing originally said 10D (my size), but I was sure to check out the photos first and noticed the last photo clearly showed 10 1/2 D as the size.  I let the seller know.

Yea or you can buy them in the SF classifieds for cheaper :) I noticed the same thing about 10 vs. 10.5

If the reverse welt was natural, it'd be a different story, though, as de-staining/sanding the reverse welt would be insanely tedious and not worth it imo.

I just did the same thing with a pair of tricker's stow boots in antique marron that was the same color as the boots.
Acetone, sanding, dark cream then polish and buff.
Ended up on the darker side of natural. Not enough to stand out, but a little more contrast.

Yeah that's me. They are 10.5. Just bought them here and decided against keeping em, mainly because the last is too sleek. They are awesome boots tho. Buy them here for cheaper.

990 - These are a C width even though they look wide in the photo.  

 

I like them!  Recently picked up the 9901 as well.
