This is absolutely wrong information. Alden charges $145 now soles replaces(used to be $120) for a recraft - they will put on any sole you want (except for LHS -- you only get a single leather sole) as long as it is reasonable (e.g you can't get the cork sole on a shell wingtip bal).
I have gotten crepe soled bluchers replaced with double leather soles and they had absolutely no problems with my request. If you don't request anything, they will recraft the shoes as to how it looked originally or what they came in with.
