^ Don't hate me... I go back and forth, but I would almost prefer that with a machine stitched toe.

High for sure. Great looking boot though. The new suede roughout Viberg at Leffot is $700...

What's Alden of DC's policy and record on preorders? Do they require the full price upfront, and how long a wait. I'd be seriously interested in a pair of these!

That is an old Alden logo for sure. Was it inside those weird medieval-type boots you bought and posted here? Freaky!

Edit: Maybe someone was yanking your cord? They could have taken the insole out of an knackered pair of Aldens and stuck it into a crappy old pair of boots?

I am serious indeed. PM me if you want me to have you added to the list. Like I said, they won't be submitted until Spring since this is a new design to Kathy at Alden DC. She is planning to do them on Waterloc soles.

Alden DC just takes your name and size. No deposit or pre-purchase is necessary. This is the 3rd or 4th set that I have gotten her to run, all have worked like a champ and not required any upfront cost, despite me requesting non-standard narrow sizes.

I want to get into boots, but the last time I tried some the shaft was really constricting on my ankles. Yours look pretty tight kinda like the way I wore mine. Maybe I'm just not a boot guy? Is there some kinda secret to them not being so tight on the ankles?

nephew,
thank you
I do not have an answer to your question. my suggestion since I think you reside in the LA area go to LSBH and try on boots on both the plaza last and barrie last. it is possible that boots will not work for you

I thought that they were on the Plaza, but couldn't quite tell from the angle. They are very nice.

I have 8 PMs for Ravello Indys on Plaza. Let me talk to Kathy and see if what she wants from people interested in pre-ordering. Once I talk to her, I will send you all a note back confirming or asking if I need any additional information. Cheers and happy holidays!
