not confirmed by alden, still a pipe dream at this point. no idea why a 6-eyelet chukka isn't a stock makeup with so many people seemingly having a tough time with the 2-eyelet version...

You sound like a good person to buy shoes from!
Really, I am somewhat the same: most of my shoes don't get a lot of miles. I have a color 8 plaza plain toe boot from almost two years ago and it's still basically new. Exceptions are my 990s, Roy boots and Quoddys - all three get the nod over the others in the stable on most days (further exceptions are two new acquisitions - 8 Indys and 8 Rangers - which have been getting daily wear since acquisition).

sadly, other than some cigar chukkas and plain old 403 indys, everything else gathers dust. weather is unpredictable, and I find myself stomping through construction sites and/or in a position where I'm pulling my shoes off 7-8 times a day, so all eyelet make-ups etc get tiresome.

I know many have issue a with the two eyelet chukka here, but remember it is apparently one of Alden's best selling models, so they may not see a need to address it... I think Leather Soul used to say they were their best selling Alden shoes.

Excellent point. I've got the two-eyelet chukka and love it.

RTP - can you tell me if your shell Dalton's are the same color as mine (2nd boot fro left, top shelf). I purchased the calf version a few months ago and while in Chicago a month ago I stopped in the AE store and after talking to the salesperson, they indicated that they had the shell version in one of their warehouses. I didn't even know such a thing exists. I purchased them with the expectation that the color would mirror the calf version. As you can see in the shot, they do not. I'm hesitant to send them back because it does seem to be a unique color. I'm just curious if your walnut shells are the same color as mine.



Thanks.

Looks to be the same color as my daltons. FWIW.

These are beautiful. If I could wear suede more, I'd be on this in a second.

I believe the term is double cuffed. One large cuff, then folded up again. These are RRL chinos. Here is a look while standing

This is not directly related to Alden, but I thought fellow members may be interested in these USA-made Repair Kit chests from H Gerstner & Sons. Their "12 Repair Kit" happens to be the perfect size for storing shoe care supplies, and they're having a 107th Birthday Sale right now. I think it's a great way to support another USA manufacturer, as well as organize all your Alden shoe care supplies:
