I got these for about $450 brand new, so I don't consider it "going up and onward from Alden (just different)...





As far as a comparison to cigar and ravello LWBs, they are darker than my cigars and even darker than my ravello.  As a last point of comparison, all of my Aldens are considerably more comfortable than the Marlow.







Has anyone on this thread gone with the Carmina shortwing in saddle shell (similar to whiskey)?  Just curious if it would actually be "moving up and on" from Alden.  Thanks...



I appreciate the observations.

The price of $710 is high and most likely will climb as Alden seems to increase every year but I forgot already what I paid for these.nod[1].gif

Tremont last is exactly what I needed and thanks for all your sizing advice, fits like a glove! I have two more boots from LS on pre-order so will be on tight budget for the next few months. Mac method starts this weekend.







Eggcellent!

Very very nice, I'm so disappointed they didn't have my size.

I made the corporate address the default, logged out, then checked again.
Default went back to the member address.

i had great success with calling customer service earlier today to make sure my addresses were correct in the system. although the website still shows my old, incorrect address under the corporate number, the discount is applied after entering payment information and the shipping/billing addresses on the final page are up-to-date.

They're a good one. Surprised you haven't snagged a pair yet wink.gif

But seriously Namor, I bless your username every day I see these in my closet. Can't ever say thank you enough!

regardless, what makes the loudest sound is usually the heel first striking the ground. the rear portion of the dovetail on AE shell offerings is pretty much the same rubber used for their calfskin toplifts. this rubber is significantly harder than Alden toplifts' rubber, and, as a result, my AEs are all much louder than my Aldens.

i just realized this was the case. darn! the saving-to-cart trick might not work so well. here's to hoping that they will release more sizes by 3/13...

PSA:

 

Hate to bring up non-Alden items, but

The Wolverine 744 Ltd. 

Horween Cordovan (Beautiful Color) almost a #4

Currently listed in many sizes 30% of regular $750 price

These are not seconds

I think they are $530-$550

 

I got the 721 last year and the shell was beautiful and since Allen Edmonds makes Wolverine's Shell Offerings, they are made beautifully. With the way that shell is being bought up by the Chinese ( as explained to me by Alden, you probably won't get a first quality boot at this price again)

The ones I seen in a store did not look that good, Last years looked great, but when I had on a pair of Cigar captoes the comparison to the 744 wasn't even close to Alden's finish.
