nephew,
I agree with your thought

Pretty tough boot to find. There are plenty of people who would love to find it. Alden DC I believe has a few pairs in stock depending on your size

If you are really set on a dark brown shell boot, check out the carmina thread. A captoe mto is about to be submitted to the factory. Turnaround is only 3 months

I'm also on the fence as to whether or not I'll keep them. I love almost everything about the boots, but as hard as I try I can't seem to warm up to the modified last. It just seems too tapered at the arch for a Boondocker style boot.

The defect is so minor that it would kill me to return them at nearly half price, but I don't want to spend money on a boot I don't love. I'm going to sit with them a bit longer to try to open up to the last. Here's a photo of the defect, which is not visible when they are on.






And a few more of the boot. Accurate color in all but the last picture. More pictures (Click to show)

Hill,
Those look FANTASTIC in snuff. I understand your hesitancy has nothing to do with the "defect", but rather the last itself. If its a fit issue, I'd find it tough to hold onto as well. But from my view, they look flat out amazing! Hope you can get the fit issue solved. If not, and they are my size, let me know before you return them smile.gif

Thanks for the Welcome sevenfoldtieguy,mcarthur, and Hill. Hill - I agree with the others, great looking boots in that color, but I know what you mean, if you aren't excited about them I'd hate to see them sit in your closet. I hope the tan one's i ordered look as good as yours when i get them. Hopefully i can make a size 9 work for me. What size are your boots in case mine dont fit :) Have a great week everyone DuckOB

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

10 eyelets for a low top is crazy however it should be noted that Alden makes "orthopedic" last. I'm curios to see the foot for whom that square box toe is designed for
