Some, but not all.  View this thread (though it is a bit dated) -- http://www.styleforum.net/t/187544/alden-vs-brooks-brothers-lasts-any-difference/0_30.  There are other threads on this subject both on SF and AAAC.  A basic google search should find them.

Happy hunting!

Good call & thanks for the referral. I may have him do a pair of AE burgundy shell LWB's.

For my second annual tax-return Alden splurge I invested in my first pair of horseass shoes:


$475 off of ebay. Thank you sam100772!

Guys,

I have a question. I have an old pair of H404's in black. The rubber sole, a Biltrite, is coming off. I'd like to have a pair of Dainites put on there but they're certainly not cheap. B. Nelson does a great job, but they'll be $155! Any other suggestions for these? I'm not sure I wan't to fork over that much coin for a pair shoes I got off eBay for $55. I have a local cobbler who's great, by I haven't checked with him yet.

Any ideas?

Can/should I put a leather sole on these?

All of your thoughts are appreciated!

Why don't you throw a picture up here - I don't know what H404's are. Assuming you're not talking about the Kudu Indy's are you?
  • B. Nelson can do rubber (by Vibram) soles on goodyear welted shoes for $60 + s/h. (I'm gonna assume that yours are goodyear welted, since nearly all Alden shoes are)
  • Yes, you can put a leather sole if they are goodyear welted - a local cobbler can help you too.

I most probably would go the Dainite route. But I like Dainite.

#8, hands down.
