I'm also considering the purchase of pre-owned Aldens for restoration, but I don't want to be stuck with the original insole that may will have been soiled and imprinted by the previous owner.


The restoration will come with a new heel pad reading "Alden Restoration." The original insole will remain as is - imprint and all. I have had full restorations/recrafts done at Alden, AE, and BNelson, and none of them come with a new insole.

B Nelson can "flatten" out the old insole that had the prior owners imprint. You've got to talk to them beforehand. I'm not sure if "flatten" is the correct term. But, most resoles (from AE to the local cobbler) assume that you are the original owner of the shoes and will not mess with the insole and the imprint.

I preordered them in advance not sure if/what stock they may have. Technically they aren't in yet but should be any minute now.

Not to stir up debate again but these are the perforated tip what I would call the straight tip vs the punched jcrew version.

No, I don't think so.  I think the 2145 has been around long before Epaulet came out with the Alden Alt Wien.  However, I believe "Alt Wien" is a particular type/model of Budipester shoe (with the cap toe medallion pattern) that is more of a "country-style" derby shoe (rounder, built like a tank), as opposed to a dress shoe.  While the 2145 is a Blucher, it is on the sleek/dressy Aberdeen last.

 

However, some of Vass's Alt Wien models are built on a sleeker last...  http://www.styleforum.net/t/130044/the-ultimate-vass-porn-thread/930#post_3725401

 

It may be that Alt Wien just means a Hungarian Medallion CTB ( I really don't know.)

 

I've tried to do some internet digging on this but not much is out there to clearly define, so I may be inaccurate with this.  Maybe someone like MoneyWellSpent or others could shed some light.
