Don't know if this has been posted here before or not, but this page has a great slideshow that illustrates many of the Alden of Carmel custom make-ups over the years.

Thank you for your reply
I sent an email to them but atomically reply they are closed for annual vacation
This is Alden DC website,am I correct ?
Thanks zippy, should of thought of that... That pair jumped to $550 by march '03. What an incredible makeup though. Its remarkable how many styles Alden has produced over the years. I would say that even in the past 10 years, the selection has shifted more to barrie, ptb, chukka, lwb
Like these beauts.
Beware. They are trying to pawn off a restored shoe on someone who doesn't know what they are looking at.
Thanks for the input. That just seems so contrary to the "only worn one time" assertion, but is the only explanation that makes sense with the sole and insole.
Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I suppose there is a chance that they meant "only worn one time after restoration" and just forgot to include that important piece of information. Who knows.
Yup. Technically, in some sense, that could be true. But if that's the case it's certainly misleading.
As an edit, I just searched for the shoes but could not find them.
