I"m interest in alden indy boot 403 where can i find that ?
have shop online
thank in advance
Here you go. This pic is a couple of months old and I have quite a few boots in my rotation so I may wear a pair once every three weeks or so. That's why they probably don't look too beat up. But I do try to take care of my footwear.
I've never had the privilege of seeing it 'in the flesh', but thought I'd share these pics that I found for the others among us who have not been so fortunate.
Mahogany & Ravello
These ones I think have already been posted recently...
Oh man, Pebble Grain! Why does Alden spoil the Japanese while depriving their fellow Americans?
More pics of the same shoe above.
Edit: Here is the Lakota #4 for comparison purposes.
looks kind of similar to the 3rd pic, but not identical.
Pretty much any Alden retailer
Once every 3 weeks?
That sounds like one hell of an extensive line-up, Sir.
Hey REguy, is that wingtip on the tremont last? I'm wondering if my whiskey bal wingtip (tremont last) will look like this Mahogany wingtip after some age. They look very similar.
Question for those who wear barrie last shoes sized down -.5 but the J. Crew captoe color 8 boot true to size: Have you found that other boots on the barrie last fit true to size as well or is the J. Crew boot the exception?
Also, I'm very close to dragging my brother into this mess as he's considering buying his first pair of Aldens. I'm more excited about his potential purchase than he is. He's deciding between the following:
- Natural chromexcel plain toe boot, leather sole (don't have details on the sole), modified last
- J. Crew color 8 perforated captoe boot, barrie last
I've recommended he get both but he hasn't yet reached that level of irrationality. His foot fits the modified last perfectly but he's a bit unsure about the look of the pigeon-y toe. I know modified last is harder to come by but shell is shell and would likely push him one step closer to geeking out with me over edge trims and lacing styles.
Thoughts on his first Aldens?
Natty chromexcel is pretty cool, but hands down, the J Crew color 8 Cap toe boot should be the choice (imho). However, I suppose it depends on what your brother wants to wear with this first Alden boots. The J Crew boot is much more versatile; it dresses up much better than Natty Chrmxl, and can be worn casually as well. If he's looking for a casual more rugged look, the PT boot may be a better choice.
