I should also note that FL is not the first place I look for alden shops. Good luck!

You're right, barely noticeable. I've been thinking about those soles on a dress boot for winter.

My camera doesn't do these shoes justice.  I assumed I would use these exclusively for casual to business casual, but these SWB's look outstanding; they could easily be dressed up with a suit.  There are those though, who believe bluchers should not be paired with suits.  I'm not one of them.

 

The commando sole is subtle enough for a dressy boot, imo.

finally got aboard - maiden voyage of my #8 chukka ... I can't stop looking at them today.  I'm normally an 11E in an AE 5 last, and went with a 10.5E on these (was fitted in the NYC Alden store).  Do these require a bit of a break in period?  I'm not used to shell, and they seem a bit stiff, but are modestly comfortable.  I'm assuming once I sink into the cork bed it should feel roomier.

 

well, enough talk i guess, here's a crappy shot I took this morning:

Yes sir. Bought 'em to get me over $175 for free shipping and ended up loving them.

Pebblegrain is sharp. I like these very much, except for the pull tab, but that is easily removed.

I agree.

Here they are on their maiden voyage today.

Anyone know anything about these very cool black plain toe boots:

 

 

http://www.inventorymagazine.com/updates/alden-plain-toe-black-boots.html

 

 

Site says "available at Fott," which appears to be some sort of Russian online place.  I'd be very interested if the boots were available elsewhere...

Right, that's a Russian store that started selling Alden not so long ago. The prices are insane though. ($770 for that particular boot)

AoC has a somewhat similar model on Barrie w/ commando sole. TSM stocks something in that spirit too.

Thanks.  I didn't do the price calculation, but figured it would be something crazy -- and in any case am not prepared to order from that site.

 

The AoC and TSM boots are nice, but I really like the contrasting eyelets against the black on this other one, and am interested in trying the crepe sole.  Hard to find a makeup like this...
