Sounds good, I too would be interested in seeing some pics. Were they do for a re-sole or did you just decide to get them changed out?

Very nice cap toes. Leffot's atoms are tempting. I would have bough them, but they didn't have my size available.
I'm not worried about the bow, but the intense restriction feeling sorta kinda kills me. I know they're new and can be stretched, but for $500 I don't want to be in pain/lose circulation. thoughts on amount of break-in/give? Store said I could return/have them stretched if need be.
the store ordered them very narrow for my feet. they fit snug--maybe too snug.
the insole will compresses a little, but not by much. still, this could potentially alleviate the problem. are your toes going numb? gut feeling is return and get one size wider. and the bowing doesn't look too bad--nothing like what you see on the AE thread.
My bad. My memories as a kid growing up in Maryland brought back visions of watching steeplechase at the Hunt Club. The actual name of the store is Hunt Club Clothiers. I've never been there, but a couple of months ago, they had a 20-25% off sale on Alden shoes, mainly their black and color 8 shell standard stuff. I think a few on this thread partook in the sale. Hope this helps...
Damn, I was hoping there was another store to check out down here.
Anyway, the next Hunt Club sale on Alden is in July.
Here are a few pics.
dddrees: They were due for a re-sole. I wore the heck out of these.
