Hello SF!

I'm interested in some particular Alden boots, but I'm having a hard time finding them.

Cigar cordovan straight cap toe boot in 10 D on the Grant last

Cigar cordovan indy boot in 10 D on the Grant last.

Any ideas on how to find these boots? Do you have to check these websites everyday or something? What is your strategy for finding a particular make up.

I'm in Chicago if that makes any difference.

Thanks for this great thread!

ˆ Yes, Kathy at Alden of DC for the Cigar captoe boot and either Yenni at J.Gilbert (Commando) or Alden of New York (double leather) for the Cigar Indy. FYI, the Indy is on the Trubalance last majority of the time so you might to try a 9.5D.

Good luck.

Are these individual salespeople at a particular store?  Sorry, I'm a little confused.

Yes to Kathy and Yenni. Call the former and call/email the latter and the Alden of NY store.

I got my first pair of Alden shell a few weeks ago from the TSM irregular sale. I wanted to see what the appeal was.  I could only find one spot on the left shoe, it is solid white dot, looks like the stain did not take on this part of the shell.  That and some sloppy staining on the inside of the tongue are the only things I can find wrong.  I definitely like the feel of the shell, cool but warm.  I also like how the tongue stays in place. Very sturdy.  These have the waterlock sole, i'd probably prefer the commando but for the price I wanted to try out shell.  My casual attire would probably be better suited for cigar, but the #8 in the dark eggplant is beautiful.  Not sure if I'll keep them but defintely a great boot and material.  A few pics of my first shell.  As you can see I haven't gone for the high polished look.  I think the dull look makes them less casual.  Not sure what shoe store tese were destined for, these are on barrie last.

 

Have a great week everyone

I think he means to say call Alden DC and ask for Kathy.  Call or e-mail JGilbert and ask for Yenni.  For Alden on Madison just call.

RTP, I appreciate the translation smile.gif BTW, I've had success emailing Alden on Madison too in regards to the Cigar Indy.

DuckOB, this is a fine first acquisition my friend!  This looks like a nice glossy shine to me... do NOT "polish" these boots.  Wipe down with a damp cloth, brush, and buff; nothing more nothing less.  Enjoy often and in great health!  (by all means, keep them!)

 

This likely will not be your last shell cordovan.  BTW, cigar is nice, but color 8 is king, as we say here!  :nodding:
