I have a few alden boots with double leather sole's that get really slippery on tile floors, even with the 1/2 rubber heel. My question is, has anyone applied 'oil" to their soles in order to make them slightly more weather reisitant & also less slippery?

They look sick to me me (in a good way). I'm debating on those and the indy boots as my first real boots.

Go with the Indy, for your first. You'll most likely never take them off.

Am I correct to assume that Alden has a larger business in Japan than in USA? Maybe Tom knows the answer.

This might be my last straw with Alden. Check out what is going on with my Beefroll Penny Mocs that I recieved just 4 weeks ago. Probably about 5 wears on them right now. I'm not well versed in shoe speak, but it appears to me that the sole is separating from the upper on the inside of each shoe. The last picture is of the outiside so you can see how this should look. Email sent off to Blackbird and Alden, I'll keep you posted on what happens.....

Hi Tom,

I can understand your frustration with people emailing and asking what is in stock in a given size across all models. However, from a customer's perspective, that often seems to be the best way to inquire.

I'm interested in several Alden models you've sold over the years. Unless I go back through all of the relevant posts on the website and read all of the comments, it is hard to know what is in stock, on order, coming up for re-order, etc. Added to that is the fact that, as you mentioned, you don't post models the day they arrive, so they may sell out before they even appear on the site. Because of this, the most straightforward thing for me to do is to email and ask what you currently have in stock in size 7.5D on the Plaza last, and I can then decide which, if any, of the available models appeals to me.

I do look at the website regularly, by the way, in an attempt to keep up with new releases and pre-orders.

Some kind of online current inventory display would be super-helpful for those of us whose only means of buying from Leather Soul is by mail order.

Cheers,
H
