Anybody aware of the status of Winn Perry?
They used to offer a Natty CXL LWB with commando soles
Hope there will be plenty unique makeups when they re-open.

Based on my understanding, they do not have plans to re-open the business.

I'm looking to purchase my first Alden. I am looking for a derby in black. 

 

Could someone please recommend a popular style of Alden derby ? And an online store with Alden widely available.

 

Thanks!

Alden of NY on Madison Ave. has many great derby styles available. The 9901 PTB and the 9751 LWB are pretty popular.

I cant really tell its darker than the other pair on the last picture. I would be satisfied if mine get the same result as yours. Thanks again for sharing your experience.

Alden "fixed" the problem to my satisfaction - for all practical purposes, you cannot see the blotches anymore. The shoes are now a very dark version of color 8.

Before pics (taken with flash, which really makes the flaws show up):

After (sorry for the dust - I took those photos right out of the box):

color comparison with my color 8 Ranger Mocs:

Consider models 2161 and 2146. Shoemart and Alden SF are good bets.

I would rage hard (as hard as a middle aged person upset over shoes could) if that blotch were there upon first opening..

 

that being said, the 'repair' seems suitable, but I have to wonder how the shoe will react to years of use/sun/etc.. whether the blotch will rear its head as the #8 tends to fade into the accustomed shade that #8 grows into typically

Yeah, I was wondering what the long term impact of this would be as well. Hope that it works out well for them! :-)

all this #8 splotchiness talk has rumbled me enough to look over my pairs. I've always just opened the boxes, laced, and beat pavement.

The only splotchy ones I have are my Perf Tip. But they were seconds, so I just dealt with them. They actually have an almost Color #4 look to them, so I don't want to get them refinished in particular...

Glad to be wrong! I always have loved Winn Perry's make-ups. I look forward to their shelves being stocked again!
