Yes, this is true. He wears them outside. But Uncle Mac levitates and floats around. His shoes touch the ground, at most, 15% of the time.

What kind of sole is that?

Maybe if Alden charged even more for their shoes they might be able to afford a web developer...

He wears them outside, but when he has to cross a stretch of concrete, he crawls on his hands and knees to prevent wearing down the toes.

I don't think Alden even advertises, doesn't seem to be a need for marketing when they sell virtually every shoe they make and retailers are lining up to carry the brand.

Anyone else take a look at the new leffot tanker boot? Amazing, until I saw the price. I knew it was coming but to see it in print 730$ for shell #8 yikes. I hope my resolve remains firm.

was interested initially, but I agree.. at that price.. I'll manage with the #8 boots I have..

 

will bite the bullet for a couple more pair in shell and then I'm likely tapping out lol

I have a couple of specialty cordovan make ups I'd like to acquire. I will simply wait for those offerings. It makes more and more sense to acquire the eg galways. Although maybe it's about time I start taking a harder look at calf offerings.

From Alden.

Definitely. It's a point of pride. "Yep. We paid some college kid $87 in 1994 and now Otis just updates the stockists."

I know people say that calf has its place in a collection, but ever since I got my first pair in shell, I haven't been interested in calf whatsoever.

Amen to that my brother. Your speaking to the choir. I was shown a calfskin LHS today and I literally couldn't "see" them on my feet. But, for some reason a pair of #8 975's had me drooling.

That's one of the very few things keeping me away from diving into the shell game too early. Lighter colors are really pulling me in, but I don't want to lost the love for all my calf shoes.
