Another member just posted a link to the J Crew site. They have it.

Howdy all, it has been a while since I have had time to catch up and post.

 

I got these off the Bay a few weeks ago, they are my first non-shell Aldens. I think that they look pretty good. I have heard that the Cape Cod collections can not be re-soled by Alden. Is that the case? I believe that they are made in Maine as opposed to the Massachusetts factory. Anyways, enjoy and have a good weekend all!

 

 

 

 

Thanks,

Mike

I am wondering what you do when a model of boots has speed hooks instead of eyelets? I really like the alden for J crew cap toe boot, but I don't really like speed hooks. Replacing them from, say, B. Nelson, is expensive ,and also just doesn't look as good. So, do you just live with them? Learn to love them? Or wait until a make up comes around that has everything you totally love? I don't seem Alden changing this make up for J.Crew any time

 

 

Depends how fervent your hate of speedhooks is.  If you like the boot and can learn to live with it, I say do that.  You rarely can know what make-ups or coming and, even if you do, you don't know when they are coming.

 

 If you really hate speedhooks, however, you should not buy them and wait for what you really want.

I agree. Wore these today. They're like slippers--perhaps THE most comfortable LHS:

FTFY. Brixton's aren't even confirmed for production yet are they? 2 years + now.

Definitely adds some shine
